A voluptuous traditional Irish Red Ale, this is a rewarding drink that makes real fans of many of those who, trying it for the first time, are taken by its unique and individual strength of flavour. It is a superb example of a uniquely Irish brewing style which blends the dry smokiness of Irish stout with the warmth of a bitter ale - and what a colour!

wheresthepath (2139) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2013
[Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading] Reddish amber with a moderate white head. Toffee, fudge, stewed apple and (oddly) tomato juice, with a rather metallic bitterness to finish. Itís got a nice smooth creamy mouthfeel, but the flavours are rather muted. Not great.

Nocturne (1833) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2013
Cask. Deep copper shade with light gold head. Light malty and fruity aroma. First impressions taste-wise are dominated by very vivid toffee notes, with sticky red fruit and a hint of vanilla following. Loving the toffee character. This was rather tasty.
