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 you’re not after a complex beer.

jamaty (1148) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Marrón rojiza, coca cola. Dos dedos de espuma. Aroma ligeramente dulzón. Sabor a malta tostada, ligera, de carbonatacion muy alta y algo aguada. Parece un refresco, insulso.

RobertDale (4187) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 25, 2015
On tap at The Nook in Bushmills. Comes reddish brown with a decent beige head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is malt, caramel, and grain. A bit sweet, but nothing major. Pleasant little beer.

culchiem (2966) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle. This seems to be getting popular in older pubs in Dublin. Reddish with a white head. Aroma is biscuit malt. Flavour is light dry bitter ale, smooth and easy drinking.

tomer (2131) - 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.

kathouse (1233) - 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 (2478) - 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 it’s still better than Smithwick’s

Padchenko (134) - 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 it’s head that well

The head is medium, the body red-brown. It smells sweet, malty. The taste is mild, a bit creamy, unspectacular. Medium 12/9/8/9/-/8
