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.

Dublin-07. Copper colour with creamy beige head. A bit of malty/nutty taste, but not enough to convince me to ever drink this one again.

mansquito (3416) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2007
Has a creamy off white head like all other Irish ales on tap. Brownish red color to it. Mostly bready with some floral aroma. Rather malty right up front and there are definitely hops as well. Balanced well enough, but not one of the best Irish ales, which I drank.

Draught@The Porterhouse, London. Amber colour, mediumsized creamy and thick beige head. Wooden and slightly fruity hoppy aroma. Flavour is flowery and wooden along with some slight hoppy and caramelly hints. Refreshing, but nothing that special.
