Nice red ale from Guinness. The one I tasted had 5.0% alcohol. The bottled is okay but a draught in the pub is even better.

I like this beer! Not as much for the beer it self - which is ok but ordinary - but because of my many summers in Ireland.

The simple fact that itís brewed by Guinness does not make it good. From the bottle it pours very little head that disappears quickly. Very heavy carbonation and not very impressive. Whatís with the 3.8% ABV? This has got to be Irelandís version of Bud, albeit much better.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 15, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2005 Well suited to an outing at an Irish pub if you donít want something as dark as Guinness. Rich creamy head. Dark amber color. Goes down smooth, albeit has a somewhat watery aspect. Faint roasted malt flavor.

Super smell of malt. Chestnut brown, beautiful head. Creamy as could be, light malt flavour. Smooth from top to bottom. A fine cream ale.

From tap, typical nitro head,nice red ale colour,quite reasonable all round without being fantastic.

Miss the complexity of most Belgian ales. Other than that a decent brew.

Thirstquenching widget beer. Thin base but the creaminess stays in the mouth long enough to satisfy. Meady, musty and hints of caramel, banana and hashish. Dry finish. íSweeeet.í
