This just becomes embarrassingly worse. Taste of maltose. Not Irish. Got a great reminder of this the other day when I asked for a Sammy Adams that was listed with other Heineken swill from TGIF’s in Athens. Waitress said they don’t have SA anymore. So I picked this one. Tried this many times. Not gonna waste anymore time with this capitalistic swill.

Clear copper red, minimal white head. Cereals, bread, yeasts, caramel malts. Herbaceous bitterness, light hops, carbonated, brown sugar, cereals.

SimonD_Bel (18) - Liege, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2015
Irish red ale conventionnelle, à nez assez faible et goût peu prononcé, mêlant l’amertume du houblon à un goût caramélisé sans grande harmonie. Pas mauvaise bien que manquant de caractère.

rosenbergh (7867) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2015
330 ml bottle. BB 09/2015. At the Come, Chania, Greece. Clear red amber colour with a tiny white head. Sweet malty aroma. Typical red ale aroma. And the same goes to the flavour. Sweetness, caramel and malt. I don't fancy red ales and this is quite the stereotype of a bulk one - so I would say no. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Una delle migliori tra le peggiori rosse di ispirazione irlandese sul mercato.

eduardovl (1019) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a pint jug. A: Pours a clear copper color forming a medium bubbled tan head. Very low retention and practically no lacings left S: Roasted and caramel malts. Sweet and biscuity. Some flowery Heineken hops T: Roasted and caramel malts, brown sugar, toffee, bready yeasts, and Heineken citrus style hops. Slightly sweet upfront. Light bitter and dry metallic end M: Light body and good carbonation. Roasted malts hoppy bitter aftertaste O: Average drinkability. Not bad [ BA Review @ 9/3/2010 ]

Fashawn (334) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 22, 2014
discreta, se non di più, birra per accompagnare momenti normali. Aroma di malto, appena percettibile, un minimo di frutta. Dolciastra appena inizialmente, con finale secco. Buona birra, sicuramente la mia preferita tra quelle "da supermercato".

Alengrin (2879) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Irish ’red’ tasted from draught in Venice. Amber colour, loose off-white head, caramelly smell in an artificial way, nutty malts, peppery hops; bit thin taste, one-dimensional, starting with caramel sweetness, nutty with leafy bitterness in the end. Drinkable but boring, like Murphy’s Irish Red, from which it doesn’t differ that much.

ziobarba2000 (15) - Roma, ITALY - AUG 19, 2014
Bottiglia da 0,33. Birra di gusto semplice un pó troppo carbonata per una rossa. Schiuma abbondante e persistente. Non presenta caratteristiche spiccate e non rilascia aromi persistenti. Fondo leggermente amaro. Si beve con facilità. Consiglio 3/10
