Brewed in The Netherlands. Nothing happening in the aroma. Taste of crystal malt, balanced bitterness leaves a crisp finish. Not bad but not memorable.

Firstly it’s not red but a glorious amber crystal clear under a large rapidly dissipating light white head. After that is below average. Mainly malt and some light sappy hops aromas. Medium light body. Mild bitter and light sweet palate. Light bitter finish. Boring and forgettable - stick to the stout guys.

Healthy amber glow, this beer was far maltier than I had remembered it--with malt tastes dominating flavor, and to a lesser extent, the aroma. A fine, hearty irish amber. For comparisons sake, a malt kick more than Alaskan Amber.

Taste like they brewed it in Cork and used cork to brew it. terrible aftertaste.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2002
Sweer nutty aroma, copper colour, slight head. Roasted malt with a nutty flavour, good bitterness. Creamy and smooth. A very tasty ale, especially on tap.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2002
The beer was a dark brownish amber color that left a white head with some nice lace. A slight aroma of malt, but barely even that. The flavor was of malt. The finish of is was very light and the beer seemed watery. I was rather disappointed with this, since I was hoping this on tap would be better than the other macros they had.

Outstanding Irish red. Refreshing and light, could drink this all night.

A pretty good beer, with a nice reddish brown color, and a good sweet malt flavor. I’ll happily drink this again.

I have a weakness for the sweet edges of this thing and, in the words of my great uncle Pete, a notorious and delightful crumudgeon, ’I can out drink, out fight, and out dance any Irishman in the place’ that chides me for it.
