WastedYouthBrew (143) - Phila (Home of Geno's Steaks), Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2005
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!

pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 5, 2016
Bottle - Clear reddish amber colour, small average life beige head. Malty aromas with caramel and stone fruits. Taste s sweet with caramel and bread, some fruitiness and low hop bitterness. Light body, average carbonaion, dry finish. Not a big one, but not bad either.

Copper reddish colour with a medium off-white head. Caramel, a bit chocolade and herbal aroma. Taste is sweet at front with more bitterness towards the finish. Overall, drinkable.

Pongauer (68) - Maassluis, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2016
A bland, boring beer. Very light carbonisation, almost no aroma and some sweetness in the taste. Skip this brew.

Amber, thin and short head. Not much aroma. Light sweetness at the end. Nothing special.

sawbuck (633) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2016
Aroma of sweet malt, a bit of spices mixed in. Nice deep amber color, reddish hues, thin off white head. Sweet malt up front. A note of cherries, not too complex. Bitterness is dry and one dimensional. Finish is dry light bitterness. Somewhat balanced. Slightly watery mouth feel. Meh.

sjorsvdg (427) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2016
Een kastanjebruin bier. In het aroma en het smaakpalet zit wat karamel. Ook graan en hop zijn duidelijk aanwezig. Dit is een droog bier dat, door de neutrale smaak, prettig drinkt.

Cokemonkey11 (505) - - JUN 11, 2016
Brown bottle, 330ml. Pours medium amber with a thin tan head subsiding quickly. Scent is light red ale but actually maybe just lager and flowers. Resin. Ethanol. Taste is medium dense red ale with flowers, grass, resin, and maybe almonds. Finish is clean and unassuming. Good.

Espuma blanquecina que se disipa rápidamente, color rojizo transparente sin apenas burbujas brotando, aroma ligero en nariz, sabor suave con notas tostadas
