"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.

Cavie (3783) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2011
Bottle courtesy bu11zeye. Clear light amber color with white foamy head. Aroma is slightly tart with a light fruity element and floral hops. Flavor is dry malt with lots of roasted grain. Semi-dry finish with a touch of bitterness. Not bad.

zach8270 (3423) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 16, 2011
(bottle - 330 ml) Clear red color with a thin white head. Mild caramel aroma with some very light and grassy hops. Very mild flavor at the beginning. Some light caramel and hay notes with the lightest hint of chocolate and hop bitterness. A bit too mild for me, but rather drinkable.

dutchbeerpages (1569) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2012
Some sourness, metallic flavor and a bitter finish that lingers. Not a great beer however, every sip is a little less flavorsome than the one before. Brought as a gift from Dublin

r464 (1915) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2014
Dirty malt, kind of earthy overall. Dark toast and char. This may have been a bad one, but it was too dry, trashy, and thin.

Tayeth (213) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2014
Dunkles, kastanienfarbenes Bier. Bruch nach Getreide, frischen Brötchen und Karamell, allerdings sehr schwach. Extrem sahnige Schaumkrone. Geschmack dann ebenfalls karamellig-getreidig, gutes Mundgefühl aufgrund des Schaums, aber im Geschmack etwas wässrig.

tiggmtl (4548) - 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).

GodOfThunder (1247) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2010
Bottle at Redlight Redlight, Orlando. Pours an amber color. Pretty much everything about it is your standard amber lager, down to the cardboard. Nothing really out of the ordinary.
