"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.

allmyvinyl (3988) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 5, 2013
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours an unsurprising red with a creamy, long-lasting white head. Caramel, demerara, and floral hops on the aroma. Fruitiness comes out on the taste, with more sweetness, and a hint of bitterness. Creamy texture, medium bodied, high carbonation. Not bad, but the sweet finish puts me off getting more.

maneliquor (3209) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 30, 2013
Tap at Porterhouse. Think malt, malt and more malt. Caramel, toffee overload. Biscuity too. Just a bit boring to be honest

Pringao_Toribi (271) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2013
Complex and strong flavour, resembles grape wine in flavour and aftertaste, sweety aroma.

ciaranc (955) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 22, 2013
330ml bottle. Brilliant red, fizzy off white head which settles to a thin residue. Looks great. Fruity notes in the aroma, some nuts and bread. Flavour is quite toasty, very malty and quite sweet. Decent body, fairly fizzy. Some bitterness in the finish. Not my favourite style but a decent example.

Amber pour with creamy off white head and lace. Aroma is caramel malts and earthy tones. Flavor mirrors aroma with a light bitter of sorts. Light medium bodied and fizzy.

ROGUE (2120) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 13, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a one finger cream colored head that recedes to a thin layer. Aroma of caramel malts with hints of toastiness and lighter hints of roasted malts. As it warms the aromas turn slightly grainy. Tastes is crisp caramel malt flavors upfront joined by toasted malt followed by slight leafy hops that carry through to a moderately bitter ending. Medium body with soft carbonation.
