COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cold filtered and kegged. Also available bottled.
"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.

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.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - APR 30, 2010
(330 ml bottle from Bootleggers) Pours clear coppery amber with a big fat biscuit head that recedes to a big fat lumpy cap. Aroma of skunk (light), hay, honey, sweat, pine and metal. Mouthfeel smooth, almost too smooth (ie., no texture), very light prickliness. Big, foamy, broken rings and gobs of lacing. Flavor is dull and muted - some sort of eggy quasi-caramel but mostly just a bitter, almost metallic taste with very little malt base supporting it. Very filtered, dull quality about it.

jseifer (62) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2010
This is actually am great red at first but settles in to an overall mediocre performer. It’s creamy and pours a slightly cloudy red. Would not drink again.

wheresthepath (1524) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2010
[330ml bottle that Jim shared with me - cheers!] Amber with a moderate creamy head and negligible carbonation. There’s some lemon & a little bitterness from the hops, along with a crackle of autumn leaves, but it’s rather overcome with the sickly caramel sweetness of the crystal malt. It’s like a Greene King brew where they’ve actually remembered to add some hops. Not great, in other words.

Bottle. Pours a ruby res brown color. Little head. Nice lacing on glass. Crisp, light. Nothing special or exciting

Scopey (6238) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2011
Keg at Porterhouse Covent Garden. It pours amber with a red hue and a thick foamy beige head. The nose is bread, yeast, hay and strawberry. The taste is hay, leather, wood, cardboard and toffee-apple, with a light bitter-hay finish. Too thin and bland.
