Thin, light on the aroma; nice copper/orange color; slick texture; very soft carbonation while lifting the pint glass to the gullet; a fine, lengthy completion that is still full of tastes several moments after ingestion. By the way, the bottles I’ve been imbibing say "Murphy’s Red Ale".

Fľaša 30 cl zo Seoul Plaza Bratislava. Tmavá karamelová farba, hustá biela krémová pena, sladová aróma. Chuť plná, nižšia rezkosť, slad, pražený karamel. Každým dúškom chutí viac, zaujímavé pivečko.

Padron4KM (661) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2015
12 oz bottle.
Deep copper, fleeting tan head, spotty lace. Aroma is light, with toffee notes and spicy hops.
Flavor is sweet caramel, and tingly spicy hops.
Finish is short

Iznogud (1545) - CROATIA - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle, 330 ml courtesy of and shared with JFK10000. Pours clear orange with off-white head. Malty and empty, bland. Medium sweetness, some caramel. Really not good, shouldn’t be that bad looking at the rates.

clockk (186) - Lada / Langreo, SPAIN - JUN 19, 2015
Espuma alta y consistente. Buen cuerpo. Sabor intenso a diacetilo. Olor nulo. No cumple con la espectativa

jamaty (1234) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Cobriza, de escasa espuma. Ligero sabor a caramelo y amargor notable. Combinación de lúpulos y maltas diferentes consiguen una cerveza bastante interesante. Refrescante y bebible.

Zonnig terrasje, Irish Red voor de verandering. Weinig verschil met normaal pils, misschien ietsje bitterder. Niet onder de indruk dus.

Espuma bonita pero poco duradera. Burbuja fina, inconsistente, aroma algo tostado. Sabor olvidable

ContemplateBeer (1741) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Aroma: Lean caramel with moderate sweetness; light old tobacco leaf. Appearance: Rusty red, lightly carbonated pour with a fizzy tan head that quickly fades into a barely patchy skin. Flavor: Slightly bready caramel that develops a touch of wood; the finish dries out well enough and leaves a woody tang. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: Didn’t do much for me; if I wanted a cheap mass produced Irish Red at the local faux Irish pub, I’m still reaching for a Smithwicks.

Padchenko (139) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 19, 2015
Low carbonation but pours with a decent white head on a reddish body. Decent platable Irish red, without being anything extraordinary. Some caramel, a little citrus, with a balance of sweetness and some bitterness in the finish.
