COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cold filtered and kegged. Also available bottled.
"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.

brokensail (12362) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is a burnt orange/amber color with an off-white head. S: Sweet and slightly toasty malts with a bit of caramel. The hops are nearly absent from the nose. T: Nothing really stands out in this beer. Slightly sweet with caramel notes and a bit of toasted bread/malt. Very light earthy hops. M: The mouthfeel is similarly unassuming. Medium in body and carbonation. D: Not at all bad, but there’s nothing here that makes me want to drink this beer again. It’s fairly bland and uninteresting. I’m not trying to be a "typical American" here and need some monster ABV, but some nice flavor would be a good start.

pete4999 (1179) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2010
On tap at Porterhouse in Dublin, Ireland. Surprised this one isn’t rated a bit higher, to be honest. I thought that outside of the porters/stouts, this one was the best I tried. A bit of caramel/toffee sweetness but a nice hop backbone. One of the better reds I got to taste on my trip.

obguthr (4385) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Malty barley nose. Amber color, medium head, good lacing. Tart malt and full of flavor. It’s not exotic, but it isn’t supposed to be. What it is is a well crafted and made irish red.

Pours clear amber color with off white head. Aromas of caramel and biscuit malts with some grassy hops. Caramel malt and iced tea flavors with some hop bitterness.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 23, 2010
bottle from papago consumed 7/10/10... dark coppery reddish amber with a sandy off white head. the aroma is of toasted caramel, mild chocolate-coffee-nuttiness-thing, some umami and a ton of spicy dry earthy hops. the flavor is nice and malty with notes of chocolate, nuts, caramel, a ton of spicy hops and a tingly dryness on the finish. the medium body is a little astringent (biscuity) and very crisp. 7/4/7/4/15/3.7

patrick767 (3718) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 20, 2010
tap - Pours clear amber with a lasting frothy head. It has a light, toasty aroma. The flavor is of toasted caramel malt with a solid hops bite. It’s medium bodied and pretty enjoyable.

tmoreau (2792) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2010
On tap at the upstairs bar in Finnegan’s of Plainfield, IL. Poured a clear, deep copper color, with silky, off white, head foam, and clingy curtains of lacing. The aroma was light grain, toast, a bit of caramel, and the slightest hint of berry fruit? The flavor added some low hop bitterness in a light body, with some dryness to the finish. Maybe a little thin, but not a bad session beer

rubbishystuff (1965) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2015 Nice to see something other than Guinness brewery out of Ireland. Not bad. Something a little strange going on in the aroma. Also the flavor was overly subdued. Serving: Tap (Nitro?)
