"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.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2005
[Draft at Porterhouse, London] A deep red beer with a beutiful lasting creamy off-white head. The aroma is slightly sour malty with hints of roastyness. The flavor is sweet malty with loads of caramel notes, but also roasted malt and hops giving it a fresh bitter end. The mouthfeel is very creamy.

YogiBeera (2435) - Hamburg, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2005
Draught at the Proterhouse in London: Small layer of a frothy head which lasts long. Light red color. Bubbles clinging in the shape of a worldmap on the glass.Toffee nose and cellery taste. So trivial.

hotstuff (3901) - Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2004
Draft at the Porterhouse in London. Uncarbonated, transparent and a red hue. Aroma was malty and hoppy and the flavor was bitter, malty and hoppy. Smooth and somewhat of a dry mouthfeel. Medium bodied beer with excellent lacing.

pivo (2542) - GERMANY - OCT 22, 2004
Light nose, auburn color, nitro-tap creamy head. Quick light toasted malt with some caramel in the middle. Then a flash of bright hops comes and goes quickly, giving way to a metallic finish. Nice effect, but thin and not that clean overall.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Dark reddish appearance, good head formation. Malty, fruity aroma. Sweet malty caramel palate, decent flavor, medium bodied, good bitter bite in the finish. Respectable.

thedm (4886) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 8, 2004
The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 20. This draft brew from the Porterhouse brew pub in London poured a small sized head of foamy white colored finely sized bubbles that left behind an excellent lacing and a uncarbonated transparent red brown colored body. The aroma was mild with malt hop sweaty sock notes and the mouth feel was smooth with a mild malt hop flavor.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2004
REddish copper colour with a white nitro head. Nice malty caramel and a faint slightly musty, lightly smoky aroma. Some peatiness. Flavour is malt-dominated, some sweetness, light fruitiness and a hint of bitterness. A slightly sour character as well. Quite refreshing.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2004
Draught at The Porterhouse WC2. A mid brown beer with a nasty creamy head. The aroma and taste are mostly malty with a bit of fruitiness. OK I guess.
