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.

TBone (11888) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2006
Draught@brew pub, Dublin. Red amber color, steady tan creamy head. Bready malty, brown toasted sugar aroma. Toasted, sugary flavor mixed with English hops. Aftertaste is hoppy. More character than the more commercial examples of "Irish Red".

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 On tap at The Porterhouse, Covent Garden. More copper than red. As harrisoni says the cold serving temperature made getting much aroma difficult. But there was a definite sweaty edge that I detected in the Vienna to this one too. Mainly malty flavour, not too "clean" tasting. Some toffee. But, generally, I just found this rather dull and bland.

harrisoni (12648) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2006
Draught at Porterhouse, Covent Garden with Yogi Beera, Pivo, ChrisO and Kook. Too cold to get a good aroma, but I was assured by the others that it smelt of sweaty shoes. Some red berry fruit, not a lot of other flavour. Creamy and a bit bland

KnutAlbert (5757) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2006
A more hoppy version of Irish red ale. Halfway between an Irish red and a British bitter, perhaps?

Had this one on tap at the brew pub in the Temple Bar District of Dublin. Reddish hue with a nitrogenated head. Roasty with some maltiness. Good nose. Overall very tasty.

Dorqui (2056) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 2, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2013 Draught at "PorterHouse" - (Covent Garden) London . Compact foam, smooths down and homogenous, typical of the irish dry. Burnt red color, firm and little shining. Scent of burnt wood, coal and parched malt. Extremely bitter and dry taste. Much smooth and dried. Bitter and singed end, long duration.
