Eh just a step above the macro pale lagers. Light aromas and flavors of caramel, toffee and just a hint of hop crispness. Thin bodied. A forgettable beer but not a bad beer.

Yet another example of why Irish beer is so amazing. This one is very high in my all-time top list of beers.

Tap @ RVC. Dark caramel with a hint of red thin head decent lacing. Smells bready with a hint of citrus. Tastes like a tiny bit hoppier Yuengling.

Clasica cerveza irlandesa. Mejor de barril que de botella. Suave al paladar no muy amarga. Deja buen sabor de boca

Clásico sabor tostado de cerveza irlandesa, al que le guste este tipo de cerveza lo encontrará como una buena opción, ya que tiene una alta disponibilidad. No la he encontrado todavía de barril, que supongo que se notará positivamente la diferencia en el sabor.

ruigo (1410) - PORTUGAL - FEB 19, 2015
Copper reddish colour with a medium off-white head. Caramel, malts and herbal aroma. Taste is sweet at front with more bitterness towards the finish. Overall, drinkable but not remarkable.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 9D). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 4263528S0741. AROMA: predominant metalic aroma with some faint malt caramel notes. No hop aromas. Clean. APPEARANCE: coppery red color and translucent. beige average head with average retention. TASTE: caramel malt flavour with some toasty and roasted notes. there is some metalic flavour present. medium-low to low bitterness with a roasted and semi-dry finish. PALATE: medium-low body with average carbonation. OVERALL: a not so bad irish red ale with some sweet and caramely malt flavour and a roasted finish. has some metalic flavour though.
