I had it on draft. I was suprised to find it on the thin side. It had a nice deep amber color, a decent head, and a nice maltiness. A decent beer.

Had on tap at Danny K's on March 25th, 2003
Pours an amber color with a small head which dissipates quickly. The aroma is quite weak with a hit of hops, but nothing special. The taste on the other hand is strong - a bit too strong perhaps. I've had many reds that are better than this one. The taste is a bit too alcoholic despite only being 5% ABV with an aftertaste that doesn't help the cause...

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2003
Pours a clear brown color with a small, off-white head that initially lingers but soon recedes. It has a very faint aroma of malts with some slight hop presence. Medium body with moderate carbonation, the flavor is initially malty, but that flavor soon dwindles away leaving nothing in the finish but a slight bitterness with metalic notes. Not too bad, about like most other Irish Red beers I have had - lacking in character and flavor but drinkable and nothing outstanding. This one came in a 16 oz can and I was expecting it to be a nitro beer, I was a little surprised when I poured it into the glass and didn't get that typical nitro pour.

I drank my Murphy's in Mayfair, Philadelphia (still part of the US). My first thought is am I ever gonna drink an Irish Ale every brewed IN Ireland? This beer was brewed in the Netherlands, only the name was Irish. Beer poured a copper color with adequate head. Not much flavor here, but it was "refreshing" and quaffable.

Not always a big amber fan, but this one works. Beautiful amber hues as advertised. As expected, more malty, nice roasted flavor. Drinks and finishs easily.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 21, 2003
This beer flow's into the glass with a deep red brown body topped by a thick head with a good amount of lace. The appearance is the only better than average thing about this beer. The aroma is sour and slightly skunky with malty accents. The flavor is slightly sour and bitter with a good maltiness and a slightly bitter finish. Light to medium bodied, smooth and slightly dry.

Clear amber color with a nice head and malty aroma. Strong malt flavors, almost smokey. Very subtle hops. Robust sweetness that I like.

Nice color, but pretty run of the mill. A little malty, but nothing special. No better than Killians(much cheaper) IMO.
