[3602-20110219] Cask. Grassy hops aroma. Hazy, red amber body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head and lacy lacing. Bitter pencil lead and grassy hops flavour. Medium body. Great balance, not sure why but probably my favourite of the night. (8/4-/9/4/17-) 4.2

How: Growler (946 ml) at home. Thanks to hoppypocket for this one! Split 2-ways.

>>> A superior Irish Ale with a great malt depth for the style and pretty good drinkability.

+ Solid work with the malts give this beer a deep caramel and toffee presence
+ A really good balance between all flavors as well as a moderate bitterness makes this one very easy to drink and to enjoy
+ The moderate carbonation and the chewy malts combine for a mellow and fluffy mouthfeel that suits this beer really well

Flavors: Caramel, toffee, roasted malt, vegetal presence, pecan nuts, mild spiciness.

On cask at Bar Volo Le Trou Du Diable event. Spot on the style, a good drinkable cask. Fragrant malt and hops, with three-eights of an inch of cask head. Good malting. Above average mouthfeel for a cask. A little sourness in finish, some lace, a smooth mouthfeel.

En fût au BDT. Couleur brune très foncé au reflets rouge rubis. Arôme de caramel, toffee, un peu de fruits noirs et un peu d’herbes. En bouche, douce, malt caramel, un peu de fumé, un peu d’herbe, toffee. FInale sucrée mais bian balancée par une amertume moyenne. Excellente Irish Red Ale.

Luk_ (231) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2014
On tap at TDD. Very dark Brown with red highlights. Aroma is burnt caramel, coffee and red fruits. Taste is roasted grain bitterness with sweet candied fruits. Rich mouthfeel. Very well done for this unappreciated style.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2007
Pours a clear brown color with ruby highlights and a thin offwhite head. Nice aroma of caramel malt with some fruityness. Good flavor of caramel and smoked malt and fruits, it feels like a pleasant, malty dessert. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and lively carbonation.

On tap at wvrst. Reddish brown pour, foamy tan head. Aroma is floral and metallic, little hints of yeast, grass, alcohol. Smooth and light. Sweet throughout with a sharp cheese dry finish. Solid but not really blowing my mind. And not worth $8 for a tulip.

Caramel. Roasted malt, nutty, bitter caramel finish. Very elegant and flavorful red ale.

jercraigs (8485) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2011
2011-02-19. Very dark red brown body is lightly hazy, modest creamy tan head leaves a nice lace on the glass. Flavour is relatively mild, lingering hoppy bitterness in the finish. Mild sweet malt middle, light citrus notes. 6+ Aroma is mild, light alcohol, light dusty malt character. 6+ Average palate is very smooth but under carbonated. Okay, it was an enjoyable drink but lacked the oomph to make more of an impression. Cask at Volo, Toronto
