Head subsides quickly over a reddish brown body. Sweetish malty nose. Roasted malts with a hint of heavy coffee. Medium body, not bad but neither exemplar.

Why a Dutch brewery is making an Irish Brew is beyond me. The Smell of this impressed me as did the appearance which I thought were both very good. Looks can be deceiving though as the beer seemed harsh and lacked a smooth rich flavor that i expected from this. Still worth a try but it could never become my regular staple.

I was pleasantly surprised when I cracked one of these bad boys. It's got a nice red color and has a nice caramel flavor. This one sits well with my palate so I'll be buying it again.

Pretty amber beer with a slightly sweet roasty flavor. Enjoyable session type Irish Ale.

Braudog (6219) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 7, 2004
Nice sticky foamy head over ... you guessed it ... a red beer. The aroma is airy and starchy like a green bottle import lager, but the flavor has just a hint of coffee grounds mixed with a nice smooth caramel malt. Nice "in between" beer.

This is one of my personal favorites, but it never fails me. The head is small, but that only goes so far. A very good beer in my book.

Draft. Only slightly reddish deep amber body; sparse, thin head. Bores my tongue to death; no liveliness to this brew. Mildly noticeable bite. Easily forgettable.

Usual skunked aroma of an international lager, and similar taste. Really the only difference is the color.

It might just be a "placebo effect," but I swear that this smells like Heineken, and it somewhat carries over to the taste. Decent toasted malt flavors, very little hop bitterness. Aftertaste has a distinct toasty/nutty quality to it. Easy to drink, but a little unexciting.

Bought in the 14.9 oz can brewed by Heineken in Amsterdam. Amber in appearance with a large frothy off white head..quite attractive actually. The smell is pretty weird though..it smells like Heineken Lager just a little more malty. The taste is mostly malty, a slight buttery tinge,sweet with small hop bite at the end. A very creamy and smooth beer on the tongue. Its a drinkable ale..would make a good session beer.
