"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.

ROGUE (2127) - 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.

Padchenko (92) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 10, 2013
Disappointing ale. Nice and creamy with a distinct and pleasant taste at first but slightly chemically and a little sickening if you have a second.

mzaar (1744) - Varberg, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2013
Flaska från The Drink Store, Dublin. Kopparfärgad öl med beigt skum. Doftar toffee, krusbär, lime och röda äpplen. Karamellig och fruktig smak. Bitter eftersmak. Kolsyrig munkänsla.

danlo (1328) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a clear reddish copper colour, frothy off-white head leaving alittle lacing and malty aroma with caramel & dark fruits. Taste of biscuity malt, caramel, fruity plum, berries and slight roasted notes. Smooth mouth feel, medium bodied, medium carbonation, some residual sweetness and earthy spicy bitterness through to the finish. Quite OK.

SamP01 (590) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Pours a dark clear rusty brown, a medium slowly fading beige head, light lacing. Aroma and Taste of toasted caramel malt and grains, yeast and fruity notes with some earthy hops bitter notes. A medium body, crisp, good carbonation. Finishes with toasted caramel malt and grains, fruity, some yeast, with an earthy hops ending for balance and mild nutty flavor. A good beer for the style, has the typical Irish Ale characteristics. A good drinking brew.

WheatKing (1306) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2013
Pours copper, white head. Caramel, dusty malt, a bit of that berry hop from the EKG or whatever. Flavour is bread, a bit of berry and even some roast. This threw me off because it seemed fairly bright and dusty at the same time and I’ve always considered those mutually exclusive. Alright.

unclemike (2309) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUN 11, 2013
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
