This is a beer that people in the US drink to make themselves think that they are drinking "premium" beer. If there is nothing else available, I will default to this, as it is available everywhere. Nice amber color, thin head with big bubbles that quickly disappears. Watery, but at least there is more "taste" than other Macro stuff. This beer tries to be "just different enough" so that it doesn't turn off the mass public.

Bottle poured clear copper with a thick white head and nice lacing. Aromas of caramel malt, biscuits, and raisens. Flavor is medium sweet. Refreshing.

Good beer not amazing but for an Irish red it is drinkable but not as good as some other Irish reds....

Xevious (77) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Pours a near clear red with s bubbly head. No real aroma, just faint bread. Tastes of faint molded bread. Goes down watery. Nothing offensive, but nothing special. Drinkable.

Nothing but dirty socks and burnt sugar. Garnet pour thatís only good thing. Bad.

tfontana (474) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 8, 2015
Draft pour into pint glass. Aroma is sweet caramel. Appearance is clear ruby red with small ring of head and little sparkle and no lacing. Taste is moderately sweet caramel and roasted malts. Palate is light to medium bodied with average texture, soft carbonation and sweet finish. Overall, not a nuanced beer by any means but if you like a fairly light beer that is full of caramel, this could do it for you.

Cunningham (6456) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2015
A bit amber-ish color with a small off white head. Moderate and mild caramel and a bit bready aroma. Medium body and an ok carbonation. Mild caramel malty, bready and herbal flavor.

CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 19, 2015
Amber to red super clear. Malty sweet like an Amber bock. Lager like but malts are lean and quickly dissipating. More metallic stuff going on. Off flavors not to my liking.

Some color some malts no hops very watery, slight metal finish. Inexpensive which is only real good thing here.
