3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the bar. Off white creamy head. Brownish red color. Caramel aroma. Complex and smooth taste. Bready finish. Moderately present hops are there. Maltiness enough for all as well. Really well balanced beer in my opinion. My father’s favorite beer in Ireland.

Gravity at Birmingham Beer Fest. Nice red beer (there were a lot on this evening). Rusty indeed - metallic, slightly nutty, but mostly just flaky malt, with hints of oven roasted tart. Quite good really.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 I do not find the thing about ale beers, english style, it is like drinking piss, bitter to the bone and they taste like a tea. BUt this is was better than some english tap beers. I liked and cheers to the waitress.

tap at the brewpub - Pours dark amber, almost ruby red, with a lasting white head. It smells of lightly toasted caramel malt. The flavor is sweet, toasted caramel malt with a slightly bitter, lingering toasted malt finish. It’s decent though bland.
