"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.

Reliable choice from the tap in the Porterhouse if you get tired off the more unusual beers.

TheKernOwl (108) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2015
Pretty strong (and nice) smoked cheese + slight dark choc/caramel nose; more toasted almonds + sweet choc on way to a more lager malt finish

JStax (4536) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2016
11.2 ounce bottle of beer from weihenweizen. The beer is a crystal clear amber with a velvet head of beige foam. The aroma has crisp doughy biscuits, some light grassy character, a crumbly graham cracker nuance, and a sweet caramel. The taste has a nutty, earthy sweetness to it. Some sweet caramel notes as well. Crisp malty taste. Medium body and medium to high carbonation. Overall, the beer is pretty nice and easy drinking. I could see drinking this beer regularly. Great beer experience.

jordinc (105) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2013
On a Nitro tap. Red with nice creamy head. Malty aroma. Sweet, caramel, and hops. Pretty simple, but quite drinkable. Nitro makes it really smooth. I imagine it would feel a bit thin and bland without the Nitro.

unclemike (2812) - 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
