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.

On nitro at the brewpub. Clear copper wtih creamy nitro head, more pronounced than the other samples. Aroma is light toast and caramel. Flavor is mild spicey and earthy hops with caramel, toasted, Munich malt, a little chalky. Medium to light creamy body with a surprisingly active carbonation level for a nitro beer. Not bad.

Cybercat (3516) - Georgia, USA - FEB 12, 2011
It pours a handsome clear dark amber with a fairly thick, if not too persistent head. Aroma is fairly strong and malty with a fruity undertone. Flavor is fruity and malty, a bit on the thin side. Texture is somewhat fizzy and a little watery. Nevertheless, it is still palatable.

"Porterhouse Porterhouse Red", really? Maybe dropping the second Porterhouse and adding Ale to the end would make sense. 11.2 oz. bottle shared by Matt at The Royale, purchased at either TWCP or Randall’s. Pours a clear, rich golden color with a finger-thick off-white head. Aroma of grains, crackers, straw, and grass. Flavor pretty much followed suit. There isn’t much going on here. Light-bodied, with crisp carbonation and a dry, grainy mouthfeel. Sessionable and forgettable.

Cavie (3844) - 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 (3585) - 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 (1665) - 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
