JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2004
Red-orange colour with a thick creamy white head. Again, lots of fruitiness in this one but also some woodsy, resiny hop aroma. Flavour is also fruity, with some residual sweetness and the dry-hopping is noticed (and appreciated). Finish is much more bitter than I expected from the style, like the Irish Ale I had at the Porterhouse. Still very good.

Dogbrick (7839) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. Clear reddish-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of malt and slight hops. Light body with flavors of caramel malt and resiny hops. The finish is short with sweet malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

jercraigs (7699) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2009
2009-05-15. Dark amber - copper body with a modest beige head. Flavour has an interesting malty profile, tangy, light bitterness throughout, creamy finish with mild malt lingering. (6+) Aroma is mild but pleasant, light malt, sweet caramel touches over slightly drier malt, mild hops. (6+) Average palate is smooth. (3+) Overall impression is Kilkenny-esque but better. Enjoyable but on the mild side. On tap at the brewpub.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2007
A Mes rate: Gravicask @ Reading Beer Festival. Dark golden. Fruity nose with maybe some slight diacetyl. Flavour has slight sulphur also but it just about gets away with it. Fruity and hoppy and actually rather good if it wasnt for the bad bits.

sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2011
Draft @ Messrs, Dublin. Couleur cuivre, col crémeux blanche. Arôme malt cara, fine note de citron, légèrement grillée. En bouche, une bière maltée et légère avec note de caramel et citron gardant une fine touche saline/minérale. Bière est légère allant vers la limonade. Fini à qcq touches de houblons et d’épices venant peut-être de la levure.

KyotoLefty (6273) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 20, 2010
Draught at the Brewery in Dublin. A true Irish Red Ale from this brewpub, much better than mass-produced stuff. Malty, very fruity, slightly sweet aroma. Really good fruit flavor, with berries. A touch sweet, a bit of sour, a tuch earthy. Sweet-and-sour fruit finish. Very good.

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2008
Medium shiny creamy lasting white head. Lovely amber body. Faint fruity malty aroma. Dry roasty honeyish caramelly taste with wooden, metallic notes. A bit watery. Soft, mild mouthfeel. Not bad. (0.3l draft at the brewpub.)

downender (6176) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Hillgrove Porter Stores, Bristol 19/03/09. Appealing, reddish amber in colour, with a moderate, off-white head. Sweet, caramel and dough aroma with a whiff of red berries. Flavour was cloyingly sweet, with heaps of barley sugar and crystallised fruit. One pint was enough.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. A rather sweet red ale. Red berries, maybe, but mostly sugar. when I look at the other ratings here, it stuks me that they do not seem to have any consistent quality to their beers. Boring.

Light berry .. great creamy head .. pretty fruity .. whipped cream lacing .. really nice for an irish ale, good beer .. . . .
Just read that 48 cans of Red Bull were stolen from a garage down the road during a late night heist.

I don’t know how these people sleep at night.
