OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 18, 2013
A - Pours a clear amber brown. Huge 3 finger heads S - Earthy grain, muted spice, bready malt, metallic notes. T - Slighlty sweet caramel, along with some grain. Some earthy bitterness show up. Unfortunately some metal. Tea-like tannins coat the mouth on the finish for a dry aftertaste. This is an easy drinking beer. Good dry finish. My only complaint about this was the metallic flavors coming through. Otherwise a good Irish Red. Serving type: bottle 09-18-2010

Pours a clear amber color, topped with a medium off-white frothy head. Caramel aroma, also some herbal notes in there, but very mild. Taste starts sweet, caramel notes, finishing with a quite mild bitterness. Some metallic feel in the aftertaste. It’s not bad, but. it’s not that great either. Pretty average, really.

BOSSbrewer (2070) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a reddish amber with a thing, quickly dissipating off white head. Aroma is light caramel, slightly spicy, and slightly peppery. Flavor is toffee, light caramel. Nice maltiness also. Carbonation is a bit too high. Has a soda pop carbonation feeling to it. Overall, a drinkable beer.

SinH4 (353) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 8, 2015
Clear amber color with small head. Aroma of caramel, a bit of english hops. Taste is straightforward light caramel and a bit bitterness. Light mouthfeel, english ale carbonation. A standard red ale, really nothing special.

It’s not a complex beer, nothing special to say about it. Anyway if you have any doubt about it just try, it’s neither a shit.

MatthijsE (897) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours clear reddish orange with a small off white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is a bit off but does have some caramel malt sneaking out. The taste is caramel, sweet, and has a light hop presence.

Pastyle (17) - FRANCE - DEC 29, 2014
Very boring. Amber colour when poured. Medium head. Malt-caramel flavour that doesn’t linger. Wouldn’t recommend, very basic

Kita (1232) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 23, 2014
Draught at Pizzeria Kariš, Pesek, Italy. Pours clear copper with thin creamy off-white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of mild caramel, herbs and some fruits. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel and mild roasted malt, follows mild fruity, grassy and a bit chalky with light bitter finish. Light to medium body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. All I know it’s overrated from my side...

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.
