Belle rousse irlandaise, bonne consistance, maltée grillée, sans être trop lourde, un joli petit caractère. Bue à la pression au bar Le Financier et en bouteille au bar La Pomme d’Eve, Paris, France, courant août 2011.

Une irish ale brassée chez Guinness, et qui titre à 4,2 % abv … (serait-ce un hasard ??). Orges très mélangés (malté, non malté, grillé) et houblon plus extraits. Couleur rougeâtre, rousse. Clarté nette. Bulles quasi nulles. Mousse qui est un nappage beige mince, ténu (là on est loin de la Guinness …). Arômes de fruits rouges, blé, maïs, seigle. 1ère bouche douce sur un malt un peu grillé, avoine, pointe de girofle. Arrière-bouche légère et courte. 2ème sur un malt clair, herbes des prés. Arrière-bouche avec une amertume de très petite facture. 3ème au malt clair, mie de pain blanc. Arrière-bouche sans vraie personnalité. Longueur douce mais vraiment banale, très plate. Jambes sans tenue. Alcool tout à fait inopérant. Finale peu engageante. CONCLUSION : bière sans aucune vraie valeur, très plate. L’Irlande est belle, mais cela ne suffit pas ….

gorkogrlo (176) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 27, 2014
Can, 0.44 l. Dark red, almost brown color. Clear. Medium-big creamy, white head, which is existing till the end of glass. Lot of lacing on glass. In nose there are caramel, tobacco, metal. Intensity of flavor is low, watery. Some bitterness and flavors from british hops (orange, tobacco) with some chocolate notes. Low carbonation. Acrtually, light body but becouse of nitrogen it seems fuller. Overall, it looks beautiful, but taste is boring and mass acceptable.

metalspice (125) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2014
Fin mørk farge med skum som varer lenge. Kjenner lite til duften, men smaken er fin mef karamellisert malt. God og bløt munnfølelse.

Aroma is caramel malts and mild fruit. The flavor is caramel, malts, fruit and a creamy/nitro finish. Probably could have acouple more points without the nitro.

Drank from a can, usually if I drink out of a bottle or can I give a three for appearance but this can’s head exploded in such a way I am ashamed not to drink this from a pint. The aroma is almost nonexistent. The taste is light, toolight, tastes like it is watered down,but the finish has the characteristic irish red sweetness. A decent beer, Slàinte!

KansaiBeerLvrs (2330) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 14, 2014
On tap at The Blarney Stone, a cool nitro pour - a deep red with a thick creamy beige head. Oats, biscuit & ash - oh wait that is some dick smoking. Smooth bodied with a creamy caramel biscuit flavor and a bit of tangy citrus. Really nice middle of the road red.

Diabobale (235) - ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
Una ale irlandese, di buona fattura. Colore ramato, con riflessi aranciati, con poca schiuma ma persistente, aromi molto caramellati e fruttati, a tratti erbacei.
