"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.

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.

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.

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

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 (3053) - 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 (2069) - 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?)

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2010
11.2oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber hue with a small, fizzy, off-white to cream colored head. The body looks thin and weak, and there’s very little lace spotting left behind. The aroma shows notes of biscuit, caramel, and amber grains, with just a touch of faded, peppery, floral hops. Flavors are equally unimpressive, showing mainly weak, biscuity and grainy malts that muddle together with passive, dry, stale floral hops. As the appearance suggests, the palate is weak, both in substance and carbonation. Not good.

Draught at Charlies Pub, Dublin Red Connolly. Deep orange to red with a beige head. Aroma moderate malty (caramel, roasted) and hoppy. Flavor moderate sweet and bitter. Medium body. Smooth and refreshing.
