2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Ehh. Some quality is here--the earthy notes and some of the toasted finish that one would expect are present, but the hop character is too high for the style, and the caramel basically absent altogether. Not terribly enjoyable other than for the educational (and patriotic) experience

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Aldi, Longford 
Copper red, huge off white head, clear, some lacing
Aroma of soft caramel, light fruits, very light aroma
Taste of caramel, soft toasted malts, light red berries, very slight chocolate (!), mellow flavour
Palate - Over carbonated initially then settled to a soft carb, light body, light sweet palate. Finish - soft fruity malts, slight toasted malt, some more bitterness in the tail
Overall - Not too bad as an Irish Red, seemed better than the O’Hara’s Irish Red bottle I had. Maybe this is a tweaked version.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Taste profile is quite simple. Cereal and biscuit malt. Finish is quite short. Not bad for the price.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber red pour, big fluffy eggshell colored head. Sweet, bread y roasted malt with an edge of caramel in the aroma. Traditional Irish ale flavour, ala Smithwicks. Texture is creamy and quite robust, low carbonation. Finish lets it down a bit, slight unbalance, lacks a little sweetness for my tastes.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark ruby red pour with a frothy wide head. Simple red ale with a subdued balance of aromas. On the nose you have hops, malt, hint of coffee, leaves and caramel. It’s a smooth, easy drinker with slightly bittersweet notes. All in all a decent beer

Malty sweet, pleasant body, a little sting in the tail. But ultimately very boring.

Got this one in Aldi at a pretty good price. Had a dark red body with a small white head that did not stay the course. Aroma was roasted caramel. Tasted very toasty with hints of vanilla and caramel. I like my ales to be fruity however, and this did not deliver. Was lightly bitter, especially on the finish. Medium bodied and a little creamy. Overall this did not have a huge flavour but it got nicer the more you drink it. Good for its price I guess.
