2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught can version, not as good as what Iíve had on tap previously. A nice thick creamy head, with vibrant amber colour. Soft fruit and malt on the nose which follows through to the palate. Finishes a little watery with just enough bitterness to keep it together. An easy drinking style, but as I said better on tap.

Rated 2 times: 8 & 25 01 2007
Nitrogen can 500ml
Red Lipton ice tea body colour with perfect creamy froth with bubbles going down effect, as my friend chmurarz with whom I was rating said: no alcohol,
no bitterness, no nothing, smooth and mellow and neutral as nitrogen in the air. There is some hint of hoppy bitterness from tanning influences on your tongue even though being creamy smooth in texture. All in all I donít like it due to itís simplicity of taste as compared with at least many other better IRA (Irish Red Ales). It tastes like almoust perfect immitation of a bit wattered ice Tea.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Moderate note of grain, light note of herbs, moderate musty/earthy aroma for the yeast, and faint root beer and spiciness in the background. Head is large, creamy, slightly off-white, with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear copper. Flavor is lightly acidic to start and finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery and has a soft carbonation. Good pub beer with a light taste, much better than the bottled version.
