[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

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.

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.

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.

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

Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur brune-rouge et claire. Nez malté de caramel doux, léger de grains de malt rôtis avec des petites notes fruitées (fraises) et de houblon herbeux. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement huileuse. Faibles notes fruitées (traces de confitures de fraises et d’agrumes) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût malté de caramel doux avec de très faibles notes fumées ainsi qu’avec des notes de biscuits et de grains de malt rôtis puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux (herbes sèches) aux faibles traces terreuses avec des petites notes de noix. Post-goût moyen et aux notes sèches, léger-moyen amer de houblon herbeux avec des notes rôties. (printemps 2007)
