"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.

KM (383) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2007
Tap. Beautiful creamy head. Nice brown body. Balanced aroma of fruit and coffee. The flavour contains much coffee, some chocolate and a some sweet fruit. A full palate. Interesting combination of fruit and coffee, it works well here. I get a stout-feeling from this beer. (Porterhouse Dublin, 16.03.07)

tiggmtl (4547) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2006
Biscuity malts and strong fruity esters with soapy, floral hops in the nose. Clear, amber coloured body is topped by a dense, fine bubbled, off white, nitro (?) head that lasts throughout and coats the glass. Caramel malt flavour is cut short before being allowed to express itself by overly strong bitterness that lingers. Fruity esters are also buried beneath the strong hops. Medium body with lively, lightly prickly carbonation that almost makes up for the nitro blandness. Sampled on tap at the brewpub in Temple Bar (May-06).

Pours a deep dark amber, slightly clouday and a beige head. Aroma is thick sweet caramel malts, and some tea-like hops. Aroma is is slightly roasty, nutty, and caramel malts with a sticky hoppy bitter finish.

TBone (13636) - 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".
