Bij de clam chowder uit plastic glas of fles. Ruikt zoet. Rodige kleur, prima schuim. Prima smaak, lekker fris fruitig.

Nice drop. Had several times in the last two weeks, must say I like it less each time - not sure why. Perhaps the batch was on it’s last legs by the time it got to Australia. The foam on the first few were reasonable and held OK, but the one last night hardly formed and didn’t hold.
Nice reddish brown colour - tastes of caramel and malt.
Length of palate is medium, longer than a larger - shorter than other dark ales.
Overall happy, but will look for another Irish Red Ale to become a regular other than this one.

Bottle poured a clear redish amber with a large diminishing amber head. Aromas of fruitiness, carmel, toffee and some light citrus motes. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of sweet malt, apple, toffee and just a hint of lemon with acrisp lingeringlightly bittersweet finish. One of the more enjoyable ambers I’ve sampled.

Sampled at the Blarney Stone in Clairmont. A very nice amber ale that is packed full of hoppy and malty goodness. Really blows a lot of amber brews out of the water. Appearance is a nice dark red and flavor is smooth and hoppy. A quality brew.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 Aroma is sweet toffee and some dried fruit. Appearance is a darker red than what most would consider an amber ale. Flavor is toffee, fruit, some vanilla. It is exceptionally smooth and easy to drink, but this stuff gives me a wicked hangover for some reason. Good for an amber. More flavor than most.

I had this beer on tap at the brewhouse and loved it. The beer as smooth and fullbodied, it went well with the steak I had.

Smells malty with a hint of caramel. This has a bit more hops from the start than the first three of the sampler. Some light caramel that sticks to the front of your gums. Decent stuff.
