This brew poured a large head of mostly lasting finely sized off-white bubbles that left a good lacing and a transparent light brown softly carbonated body behind. The aroma is mild with malt and hop notes while the mouthfeel is smooth with a little hop bitterness to it in the finish. There is definately a "Red" taste to it. The flavor contains elements of malt, hops, a spicey redness.

Great appearance, thick creamy head. Good beer, nothing special, I'd rather have a Guinness.

Not much of a head but I do like the colour, its not too bad to drink,not too much flavour and just some bitterness there so enough said.

Not too bad. I drank this beer at a party about a week ago. It was much better than the Natty Light and Budweiser everyone else was drinking. I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it, though.

Bottle. Clear amber-brown color with large foamy white head - how is this a red? Aroma is rich malty with hints of butterscotch, and lemon with ample hops. Flavor is also rich malty with citrus but an odd somewhat metallic undertone. Medium body and mild carbonation.

Ruby red with a small white foamy head. Skunky aroma of caramel with some carbonation. Taste is just skunky. Very hard to drink.

Reddish brown color, looks like gluhwein.Rather carbonated but thin. No much taste at all except from a bitter finish.

Nitro Keg, Robin Hood, Bexleyheath. Smooth as a baby's bum and as bland as a clean nappy. If the baby had a shit at least this nonsense would have some character. There are dry roasty flavours in the body which develop in the finish, and there is a slight creamy sweetness up front, but that's off set by the pasteurized hops which taste of wet cardboard. Not a good drink.

Jan, 2003An Irish Red Ale is very slightly different to an English Bitter by the use of roasted malts which gives the red or amber colour and adds a slight caramel tone to the flavour. The bottle version of this beer tastes pastuerised, so there is a stewed hop quality giving a nasty metallic taste typical of pastuerised beers. Leave the bottles of Murphy’s Red alone. They are bad beers. [1.3]
September 2007 Mildly sweet with chocolate notes, faint cardboard and faint roast barley. Tastes like a typical cheap European canned Ambree. Quite drinkable, and with more flavour than your average lager. [2.0]

Not much aroma, but nice dark color with head and lacing to boot. Smoother mouth feel than Guinness, lighter body, toasty, malt...nice balance...finished sweet for me.

Not very good at all. My friend pretended to like it so he could seem knowledgeable about beer. Don't waste time drinking this.
