Boekanier (57) - - MAY 26, 2014
Pours a clear reddish ale with a short lasting off white head. Malty aroma, taste is sweet and a little bready. Soft and bitter finish. Mouthfeel ok, not too much carbonation. Ok ale, but very mediocre; when chilled, apprioriate for a hot day if youíre not after a complex beer.

tomer (1757) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 24, 2014
Draught, small creamy head, clear dark red colour with brown taints, malty caramel aroma with some cola, grainy caramel flavour with some cola and plums, light bitterness. Nice and simple session beer.

568ml re-usable glass-bottle, BB 24.11.14
The Ale begins smooth, easy to drink with a bit bitterness in the mainpert. Caramel, Ale-bitterness and dryness. The aftertaste is caramel, malty bitterness.
Much more flavour than expected. Nice! --> 12/12/11/11

kathouse (1081) - Nevada, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Brought a bottle home from Dublin. Nice medium red color with pear and hay aromas. Very malty, dry, and grassy body that needs a better balance. Finish is puckering sweet.

stravale (2241) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - FEB 11, 2014
Can from Dunnes Stores, Longford [090212]
Copper brown, big bubbly off white head, some lacing
Aroma - light malt extract, cardboard, very little aroma
Taste of light caramel malts, some sugar, malt extract, watery, little flavour, bland
Palate - soft carb, light body, slight fruits, cardboard. Finish is non-descript.
Overall - Tastes of cheap economy brewing. But itís still better than Smithwickís

Padchenko (89) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 22, 2014
Tasty red Irish ale. The taste is much more like an English ale than most of the Irish reds, particularly the after-taste. Pleasant tasting. Slightly creamy. Does not retain itís head that well
