"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.

wlajwl (5839) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 22, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2011 Subdued malts, a little bit hops peeks through, a straightforward Irish Red that is balanced and easy to drink.

New beers available at the local today, even at 5 bucks a bottle I still pulled the trigger. Pours a deep dark golden almost reddish in color with a good sized fuzzy white head that slowly recedes to form a cap and lots of sticky lace. Smells great! Dark crystal malt sweetness hints of dark fruits and burnt sugar. Very little to any hop present in the aroma. Taste is malty sweet with light caramel slightly bready with some dark fruit and an earthy hop bite that surfaces just long enough to keep it on the right side of cloying. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, moderate level of carbonation and a medium to light body. Very simple but quite tasty brew, very easy to drink sessionable ale. If not for the price tag I could easily see more of these in my future.

Cybercat (5172) - Georgia, USA - FEB 12, 2011
It pours a handsome clear dark amber with a fairly thick, if not too persistent head. Aroma is fairly strong and malty with a fruity undertone. Flavor is fruity and malty, a bit on the thin side. Texture is somewhat fizzy and a little watery. Nevertheless, it is still palatable.

marcus (9231) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 7, 2011
Pull-off tab bottle from City Beer. Pours reddish gold with a rich beige head and a light floral aroma. There is a slightly bitter chocolate and pale malt flavor with a bitter finish. The taste is rather thin, but otherwise not bad.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle. Clear russet with a steady cream top. Some decent aroma emerging; toffee, stony minerality, aniseed and herbal, thistle-like hop. Plain and understated with caramel, hedgerow fruit, hints of aniseed and fruit loaf. Not really my thing, but does what it does well.

leaparsons (9949) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2011
Bottle. Copper red with an off white head. Aromas are earthy with mellow berries and hints of toffee. Gentle spices with some wet cardboard. Flavours are sweet toffee and Vimto with bubblegum and raisins. A decent fruity ale.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2011
A decent session beer, impressively flavourful for its strength but a little flawed. Red with a large sustained head. Balanced aroma of caramel and gentle bitterness. The flavour is of sweet caramel and toffee, quite fruity, with an earthy bitterness, but with an unsatisfying grassy hop character that finishes strong..

This pours a decent orange red color w/ lots of lace and a short lasting head. Nose is sort of sweet and caramelly w/ a bit of toast. Flavor is about the same. This is a bit on the bland side, though w/o any real off flavors. Finishes w/ a grassy bitterness. Itís dry and drinkable and thatís about all I can say about it. I like session ales just fine but I just like a little more to be to them.
