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.

[2147-20090515] Tap. Smells like peas and uncooked meat. Clear, red orange body with a thick long-lasting creamy off-white head and thick lacing down the sides. Mild veggies and yeast flavour. Medium body. Average.

jercraigs (8220) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2009
2009-05-15. Dark amber red body with a good sized creamy cream coloured head and very good lace. Flavour is more bitter than I expected with a sharp bitterness on first sip, sweeter malt undertones feels just a touch to thin to balance the bitterness. Aroma is muted, non-descript hops and malt. Average palate is smooth, lightly carbonated. Okay. On tap at the brewpub.

Grossecaisse (120) - FRANCE - MAR 9, 2009
Un jus de chaussette en arrière gout, une amertume assez prononcée, des bulles peu existante. Pas séduit par cette bière.

Rune (8828) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2008
Third pint glass on a sample tray, draught at Porterhouse London. Thin, creamy white head covering a deep dark brown body. Nice laceworks. Sweet malty nose followed by a smooth roasted taste of caramel. A bit anonymous, though (05.08.2008).

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2008
Light amber coloured beer with a small off-white head and almost no carbonation. Rather light creamy aroam with some light malty and caramel touches. Creamy full palate. Finish is bitter, little caramel roasted touched with a longer light bitter ending. Nice irish ale.
