ContemplateBeer (1996) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Aroma: Lean caramel with moderate sweetness; light old tobacco leaf. Appearance: Rusty red, lightly carbonated pour with a fizzy tan head that quickly fades into a barely patchy skin. Flavor: Slightly bready caramel that develops a touch of wood; the finish dries out well enough and leaves a woody tang. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: Didn’t do much for me; if I wanted a cheap mass produced Irish Red at the local faux Irish pub, I’m still reaching for a Smithwicks.

Padchenko (281) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 19, 2015
Low carbonation but pours with a decent white head on a reddish body. Decent platable Irish red, without being anything extraordinary. Some caramel, a little citrus, with a balance of sweetness and some bitterness in the finish.

Gangstergafje (684) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2015
Nice clear red color. The beer has a thin layer of white foam. It looks nice. The smell is simple. It has some metal and a regular beer scent with a little fruity sweetness on top. The beer has a nice bitterness. It has some nice almond aromas. The beer develops in taste the more sips you take. At first it is quite regular, but after a wile you discover rich beer. There is also a little citrus in the taste.

Yet another example of why Irish beer is so amazing. This one is very high in my all-time top list of beers.

Tap @ RVC. Dark caramel with a hint of red thin head decent lacing. Smells bready with a hint of citrus. Tastes like a tiny bit hoppier Yuengling.
