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.

Strong sweet caramel aroma. Perfectly clear with a nice amount of head. Good caramel flavors as well but the hop bitterness is little stronger than it should be for an Irish red covering any malt flavors at the end.

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.

Pretty decent amber ale. Pours a moslty clear medium amber (lighter in color thatn the porterhouse red) and a light beige head which fades- leaves some lace though. Aroma is nutty, caramel, and herbal/floral hops. Sweet caramel and toffee in the flavor balanced by more floral hops. Nice balance and mouthfeel. Good irish red.

On tap - Messrs, Dublin. Red clay colour, firm, creamy off white head. Hops and malt in the aroma with a smooth malt-caramel flavour. A serious session beer.

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.

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.

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.
