2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl bottle. Has a rather light aroma. Sharp bitter taste with sort of a sweet finish. Sadly falls a little short on the palate-side.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear red pour with thin white head. Aroma is faint, light caramel, light toffee notes. Taste is mildly sweet, slightly grainy, quite watery. Palate is light and watery. Looks and tastes more like a colored pale lager than anything else.

Flaska på best western, askersund. Rödbrun med lite vitt skum. Maltig doft utan blommighet. Smaken är relativt söt med lite beska.

ON TAP at a random cafe in Malaga’s old town.
Basically it is and ale with a character of a light lager with some basic malt sweetness sweetness. Poor.

Tomei o chopp dela no navio MSC lírica. Nao é muito saboroso como outras red. Não vale tomar novamente.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Gus O’Connor’s, Doolin. Clear deep amber-red with a small but regal white head. The aroma is of toasted malt, some caramel accent, biscuits. Flavour of toasted and caramel malts (mild) with a touch of honeycomb. Far from unpleasant--just uninteresting.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malts, toast and a hint of dried fruits and nuts in the aroma. Amber with a white head. Medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Light to medium body with a average carbonation. Overall quite boring, but nothing wrong with it other than that.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pint on tap. Pours clear red with a thin, off-white head. Aromas are failry mild: some caramel and bready malt and iron. Flavor begins mildly sweet, wtih some cereal grain, cooked vegetable, then quickly turns to herby hop bitterness that grows and lingers along with some iron. Medium body with a creamy(ish) mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, quafable, but nothing to write home about. Muted malt character, and fairly unbalanced bittterness without the hop flavor.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2014 "i’m more a fan of the americanized irish reds, and this beer is why. it looks ok, and feels nice on nitro, but there is only the faintest hint of malt flavor in there."
