Whilist I roamed the streets of jersey looking for cheep ale, close friend and comrade McLats and myself picked up a six pack at Wilco’s. It was to be Murphy’s Irish red which proved to be soothing to the palate. As it turns out it was a delicious blend of finely placed hops that was not abusive to my sense of taste and smell. Sidebar, vision remained and so did touch and hearing ability. Pick up a six pack sometime and attempt to embrace Irelands green pastures and delicious sounds of the chieftons. Caps off and cheers to Murphy’s Irish Red, for you surely are a king in a peasant’s world!

.5l pour from tap into glass mug at a bar in Kazakhstan. Mildly dry, light strawberry, medium body, no finish. Very mild overall. Nothing unpleasant, but fairly unremarkable.

Clear ruby brown color with white foam layer. The smell is nearly negligible. The taste is a little sweet, low in carbonation, with some hopping and generally a bit boring. Calm aftertaste.

Bei der Grünen Woche gezapft getrunken, braun-rötliche Farbe, Karamellaroma, etwas süß, sogar etwas Kirsche zu finden. Später säuriger. Netter karamelliger Abgang

Senka (999) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 13, 2016
On tap at O’Connor’s Old Oak Irish Pub@Vienna Poured nicely, with a head that settles. Ruby red, clear. Rather thin bodied. I expected it will remind me of Beamish Red, but it didn’t. Barely ok beer, but absolutely not worth the price asked. Nothing to do with Irish, and not really much to do with an ale. Overall a disappointment for the high expectations. Top 10 Irish beers my "you know hwat".

Tunn och blaskig. Påminner mycket om det som brukar kallas för mörk lager - tänk Falcon Bayersk. trist.

Flaske. Ikke en særlig interessant øl. Farven en brunlig rød og skumkronen er hvid. Mere er der ikke at sige om den.
