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

From tap @ Tipsy Toad. Pours clear golden/red’ish with a white head. Aroma of butter, vegetables, grains, hay. Taste is with a super thin body, grass, hay, vegetables. Horrible.

Let sødme i øllet. God dyb og tæt karamelsmag. Ikke nogen dårlig øl og den kan fåes billig de rigtige steder.

Sin dudas este estilo rojizo irlandés ha sabido imponerse en todo el mundo. Se diferencia de sus similares inglesas principalmente por el uso de un pequeño porcentaje de cebada tostada lo que determina un color rojizo brillante y profundo, además de un final seco. Aunque es una bebida fácil de tomar la densidad inicial no es tan baja como en otros estilos, en promedio podríamos fijarla en 1052 y un ABV 5%. Suele sobresalir el carácter maltoso, una carbonatación moderada y el amargor (con lúpulos ingleses) mas bajo que en las Pale Ale inglesas.La cerveza se presenta con un color rojizo limpio, no tan intenso como esperaba, un rojizo ámbar. La espuma es blanca y porosa, baja retención. En aroma hay un leve frutal, el carácter de grano tostado esta presente junto a matices acaramelados. En boca la gasificación es mas bien baja, ligera y algo sedodsa. En sabor me gusto mucho, el amargor como era de esperarse estaba algo tímido, sobresalía el acaramelado y un notable dejo tostado y chocolatoso, algo que a mi particularmente me gusta mucho en cervezas rojizas. El final es con algo de lúpulo herbal, seguramente alguna variedad inglesa, y ese tostado muy bien equilibrado y sabroso.

rosenbergh (9144) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 18, 2015
Draught at the Murphy's, CPH, Denmark. Clear amber color with a small creamy head. Mild floral bitterness and some chemical notes in the aroma. Metallic and watery flavor with some hoppy notes and mild bitterness. Boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber irish red, brewed by Heineken. Small touches of caramel, soft bitterness and no long aftertaste. It’s a so called " easy one " to drink with the early matches.

Amber color and average head. weak aroma of malt caramel. Taste is light and not too bitter. Easy beer to drink.
