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 (2273) - 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 (225) - 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.

Onslow (1206) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Pour from a 14.9oz can with nitro widget. Clear tawny ale with creamy nitro head and lacing. SUbdued aroma of sweet malts. Taste is a little sweet, not distinctively so, watery in the middle and finish. HInts of metal and hints of hops at the very end. Not much here...

Poured from can. Mild aroma of bread. Pours a clear reddish brown with white head. A very light bitter taste. Light body and slick texture. Mild and not as creamy as I expected.

0,5l can. Nice, coffee colour. Mild, malty aroma. Kinda watery and corn-ish. A hint of coffee. Long lasting, white head. Low carbonation, pleasant. No hops,little malt. This is just too bland and dull.
