355mL bottle. Pours a clear deep mahogany with a nice fresh toffee apple aroma. The flavour is very very sweet toffee wow, very nice with a very light low alpha hop backing. Personally i prefer hoppy red ales but i really cant fault this beer its sweet and flavoursome.

NachlamSie (2651) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2012
6 pack from Target in Oceanside. This was actually pretty decent. Obviously itís a malt-forward beer. Strong notes of toffee are most prominent with biscuits and gentle roast. There isnít much hop character to speak of. This is a sweet malty beer without being too sugary and maintaining a good balance.

On tap at San Diego Airport bar. Pours a clear copper with a small white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is raisin malt and toffee. Medium mouthfeel with a rich malt and caramel. Easy to drink a very good Irish ale from Karl Strauss.

Bottle. Pours deep amber with beige head. Aroma of caramel, a little floral some nut. Flavor is sweet, malty, hints of alcohol, some nuttiness. Medium body, high carbonation. Overall, not bad!

Jado (440) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2012
Donít mind an Irish style red ale, and this is a pretty good example of the style. It pours a deep russet red with a fairly tight beige head. Carbonation is lively which lifts the beer. Caramel and malt drive the taste, with a light, flowery overlay of hops. Thereís a light flavour of wheat at the back end. Overall, a very acceptable red / amber ale.

JDBaker11058 (1131) - Maryland, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Appearance: attractive clear coppery-amber pour, with one fat finger of off-white head; minimal lacing. Aroma: caramel, brown sugar, sweet and toasty malts. Taste: caramel, toffee, brown sugar, a bit of raisin and possibly some light maple syrup. Finish: smooth, toasty, slightly sweet, with a pleasant lingering malty-ness. Notes: Now this was just an AWESOME beer. Really malty-tasting, but not a malt bomb per se. While on the sweet side, it wasnít too sweet. Just a swell, easy drinking beer, and probably the best Irish Ale Iíve ever had. On tap at the downtown SD location.

Maris (916) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2012
From a 355ml bottle on 20/6/2012. Pours a dark ruby with a big head. Has a slight toffee malt aroma with a little fruit. This is very sweet and malty in the mouth, with lots of toffee and caramel and a touch of dark fruit, Itís a little spicy and nutty, with a very mild bitterness. Not bad, though not overly exciting.
