No BB date seen. Poured a translucent red-brown colour with a one-finger off-white foamy head that diminished quickly to a line of bubbles. Laced poorly. Low carbonation with small bubbles. Aroma of sour malt and earthy yeast. Tasted very very sour . Light body bordering on watery. Something not right – terrible!!

Pleasant easy drinking sessional style, but at 5.1% might be a short session. Clear deep red brown, light staying head. Looks flat bit small fizzy gas on the tongue. Nice palate w just the right hoppy bitterness.

Bottle from Plonk. Deep reddish-brown, low carbonation and little head, caramel, bready malt, little bit of horse blanket, thin in the mouth, sightly metallic. Something not right here.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a 330ml bottle on 15/5/2013. Pours a dark reddy amber with just a hint of head. Has a slight but not particularly pleasant earthy, herbal aroma. The flavour is primarily caramel and bready malt. The bitterness is moderate, the palate a bit watery, and the carbonation low to medium. Really didn’t enjoy this one at all.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dark copper with a small head.
Rich malty aroma, showing nutty malt, brown sugar, bready notes and caramel.
Very malty flavours too, but less complex, mainly just bready malt.
Very watery body, not enough carbonation either.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad at all. Quite full flavoured with some sweetness early but the hops really kick in, perhaps much more than an Irish Red Ale might ordinarily show. Sweet roasty notes yet hoppy and bitter at the same time.
