500 ml can. Clear red/brown ale with pleasing head. Medium bitter taste, long on the palate. a very traditional Irish ale now manufactured by Diageo but has not lost its old-fashioned charm. For fans of the writings of Patrick McCabe, it is the beer of choice of many of his strange characters.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours darkish red with a small head. The aroma is surprisingly pleasant., sweat caramel malt and not as subdued as I expected. The flavour is more predictably bland and prosaic, crystal malt initially, giving way to some caramel on the finish, a little fruity. Boring overall.

Can courtesy of garthicus. Dark copper with a good sized slightly off-white head. Mild aroma of grainy malt with a hint of grassy hops. Light body. Flavour is simple but not bad - mildly sweet and a bit earthy to start, with a decently bittered finish. Not very exciting, but quite quaffable.
