Light-bodied with flavors of caramel malt and grassy hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall. Slightly above average overall.

Bottle from Dicey Reilly in Ballyshannon.
Appearance - deep amber to brown with a lovely fawn head.
Nose - red fruit, wood and biscuits.
Taste - more of the same. Some orange fruit too. A touch of popcorn on the finish.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry balanced finish.
Overall - exactly as an Irish Red Ale should drink. Enough taste to keep it interesting while being extremely drinkable.

Vrij donkerrood, dik schuim. Ruikt typisch Irish Red, moutig. Beetje veel carbo maar smaak is prima. Iets mindere nasmaak.
