UPDATED: JAN 3, 2008 Cremmy and sweet this is a great brew. It is a more authentic version of Kilians and quite tasty. Had it in a pub on tap and like it very much. Not overwellmed but it’s darn good.

The best red beer I have ever had. A great color. With a fabulous head. The beer has a heavy malt and hop aroma, and taste. With a smooth finish. The body of the beer is thicker than other reds, which leads to a very good feel on the palate.

Great beer! Dark black, reminds me of Beamish. Same style, thick black, awesome head. Tiny packed bubbles in the head that lasts forever! Nice and creamy. I will get this one over and over. Tastes like espresso, some carmel overtones. Great beer by some great people! I would love to get this one on tap.

Refreshing bitterness and harsh malt sweetness melt into this prototype of irish red beers. The colour is caused by the special malt mixture that also gives this quite unique taste. Some might think this beer is a bit old-fashioned but, name it ’New Craft Copper Lager’ and it’ll please a lot of people. The carbonation is relatively strong which enhances the refreshing character, the body is light to medium. And the finish is nicely dry hoppy. A classic brewing style and a refreshing but characterful lager.

A great smooth irish amber. Much better than pretty much any other american made amber or red

I actually like this a little better than guinness. It has a much more milder taste than guinness, not as bitter. The head has a beautiful froth to it. Very enjoyable!

This is one of my favourites! Gorgeous red-ish color, nice malty and semi dry. Little head, only had it from can so far.

One of the best made beers in the world. When it comes to making beer they just kick-butt in Ireland. This is just another example of their superior craftmanship.

Excellent ale. Best at a bar or bought 6 at a time. It gets a little skunky after sitting in the fridge for a few days.
