Frothy head that quickly disappears. Mild hoppy flavor. Deep brownish red color, light carbonation. I would recomend over any macro red.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2004 Great red. Nice amber color with a reddish tint. Complex taste, but this is exactly what a red beer should be.

on tap: other rate speak of nitro tap. this was regular CO2? but not a bad amber , mostly malt character, with a slight hop backbone, but nothing to really talk about. i would much rather have the stout. im looking for the nitro tap thought...

Canned version. Pours a dark red with a medium whitish head. Malt, hops and light notes of metal. Very smooth mouthfeel. Some malt a lighter grassy notes with this. Not an unpleasant beer despite the metallic hints in the nose. Average but drinkable. Decent.

Dark amber with a fluffy head. Malty flavor, low carbonation. Nice hoppy finish, but slightly medicinal aftertaste.This one came in a 16 oz can. This was ok.

An Irish beer brewed in Holland?!? Weird. Pours an amber color with a decent head and nice lacing. I was expecting more of a redish color, I think, but it's nice. Smells a bit skunky, to be honest, with some maltiness scent. Taste is also a bit skunky, but not much. I think it's the "Hinie" coming through. There's a bit of hops and some malt going on. There's also a little bit of complexity but it leaves an aftertaste that doesn't do it for me. Mouthfeel has a *very* nice mineral sensation going on. Decent carbonation and the mouthfeel is full, but the aftertaste lingers with almost a metalic taste. Drinkability, therefore, suffers.

Medium copper color. Small white head. Aroma is malty. Grainy and a touch grassy. A medium to light bodied Irish Ale. Malts are slightly nutty and fairly sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. Light and refreshing, and way too sweet. It taste better than the typical American Macro, but not much. It drinkable but kind of uninspired. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
