Aroma of caramel malt, bread, toast, resin, spruce, hops, citrus and some yeast. Pours clear dark amber, red liquid with a foamy white head that disappears quickly. Light to medium sweetness and light bitterness with a flavour of malt, caramel, grains, honey, resin and fresh hops. Light body with below-average carbonation, watery finish.

PintjeFritz (76) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2016
No information on the labels about the malts and hops in detail. A red clear beer with a short head, fizzy carbonation, very thin and a little malty, finish very short, summary a lot of water, no character for me (I have 0.33l bottle with batch L3003F10808 and best-before 12.2016)

willisread (2017) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 1, 2016
Tap at Sullivan’s in Kichijoji. Clear amber pour with 2 fingers of eggshell colored head. Almost no aroma noticeable, if I strain maybe a faint caramel aroma. Water on the palate and thin bodied. Light malty caramel notes. Papery finish. Meh. Standard Irish bar fare.

Castanho acobreado para âmbar. Sem turbidez, creme ligeiramente bege, média formação e alta duração. Aroma predomina malte é um leve herbal do lúpulo. Sabor notas de torrado/defumado leve, boa carbonatação, amargor ligeiro e suave no retrogosto. Corpo e leve r refrescante, espera mais pelo estilo e família.

Matwill (84) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2016
Rating datant du 28 mars 2015. Cream Ale en canette qui a accompagné de façon bien honnête un repas typiquement irlandais. Elle demeure très légère, à la texture crémeuse mais vide au goût.

Nitro on tap at Jungle Jim’s. Pours medium brown with a tan head. Aromas of hops smooth nitro creaminess. Bitter crisp bite nothing to thrilling.
