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.

Leighton (11889) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2010
Bottle. Pours a light red with a fine, white head. Holds a faintly sweet malt aroma with some earthy hops. Light caramel notes in the flavor, some sweetness, slightly bitter. Light to medium in body, average carbonation. Pretty nice.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - APR 30, 2010
(330 ml bottle from Bootleggers) Pours clear coppery amber with a big fat biscuit head that recedes to a big fat lumpy cap. Aroma of skunk (light), hay, honey, sweat, pine and metal. Mouthfeel smooth, almost too smooth (ie., no texture), very light prickliness. Big, foamy, broken rings and gobs of lacing. Flavor is dull and muted - some sort of eggy quasi-caramel but mostly just a bitter, almost metallic taste with very little malt base supporting it. Very filtered, dull quality about it.

GodOfThunder (1248) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2010
Bottle at Redlight Redlight, Orlando. Pours an amber color. Pretty much everything about it is your standard amber lager, down to the cardboard. Nothing really out of the ordinary.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2010
On tap at The Wharf, Aalborg. As Red Connelly. It’s a clear, copper-colored beer topped by a nitro-looking creamy, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma has a little sour hint, with caramel and nutty hint. Faint citrusy hops. Caramel maltyness, quite sweet flavor with a decent bitterness to bring it to balance. Smooth, medium mouthfeel. Short fruity finish with pleasant bitterness. Drinks easy but is very boring. 091025

11.2oz bottle. clear burnt orange under a large creamy off-white head. crystal malt aroma. a nice caramel and bread malt flavor with bittering hops. nicely balanced with the bitter, sweet, and fruit all attacking the palate with equal opportunity.
