"At last an Irish Red Ale with a traditional hop flavour to balance the fruit character of the yeast and the luscious caramel flavour notes delivered from the malts used, as opposed to artificially added."
Ingedients: Pale, Crystal, Wheat and Chocolate Malts; Galena, Nugget and East Kent Golding hops.

Erzengel (2341) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 27, 2014
On Tap. Smooth in the beginning, caramel with hints of sweetness and a nice bitter aroma. The mainpart is caramel with a nice bitter-grainy aroma, slightly "red", smooth. For a Red Ale lots of aroma, nice and easy to drink with a nice floral-hoppy deepness. 10/12/10/11

r464 (1883) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2014
Dirty malt, kind of earthy overall. Dark toast and char. This may have been a bad one, but it was too dry, trashy, and thin.

Appearance: Brownish raisin red with fizzy head

trapped (715) - New York City, TURKEY - FEB 14, 2014
Drought. Reddish amber with creamy large beige head, sugary cinnamon aroma, low carbonatoon, a bit flat and weak taste, abrupt finish. Disappointing to taste considering the way it looks,

high_on_hops (584) - Burlingame, California, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Pours a nice shade of red with an off-white head and lacing. It has an aroma and flavor of amber malts with a balanced caramel finish over a medium body.

Marko (3878) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 26, 2013
As Dublin Red, on tap at Dva Tona Bar, Split.
Darker amber body. Off white "nitroish" head. Weak malty nose, notes of peach and maaaybe caramel. Quite smooth (no surprise there) malty taste. Caramel, simple maltiness, some woody notes. Quite light bitterness. Not entirely bad, the point of this style still eludes me, but hey, simple, pleasant, maybe would work as a gateway beer, and, unlike so many beers of its kind, have a point like that.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2013
Keg at The Porterhouse, Covent Garden, London. Brown to amber with short white head. Cardboard notes from the start, dry, thin malty. Not very good.
