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.

Reid (2302) - Salem, Oregon, USA - DEC 9, 2003
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.

Light amber in color.Small loose bubble in a white head..Hoppy and bitter,with not much body.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - DEC 8, 2003
On tap. Amber color, creamy head. Malty nose. Flavor was malty, a little toasty with a bit of caramel and some bitterness in the finish. Smooth, but a bit watery. Decent.

For a beer that had the word red in its name it's very pale. good dry flavor that is kind of bland in retrospect and fairly weak, watery tasting.

Dorwart (2522) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 28, 2003
Nice thick creamy head which crater nicely and lasts a long time. Very attractive in the glass. Mainly malt aroma that is slightly dry and bitter also. Color is a very nice dark red/amber with little carbonation. Flavor is well balanced. Sweet malts up front and a nice bitterness in the end from the hops. Dry in the mouth. A decent Irish ale.

UNCCTF (518) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2003
A very malty aroma and flavor, with a nice bittering feel in the very back. It almost tastes pilsner-ish. Confusing, but easy to drink.
