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.

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

Bottle shared by Velkyal. Thanks! Pours a clear auburn color with a large frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of nutty notes, caramel and faint hops. The taste is raisin, toffee and a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied.

RichardGretton (4175) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2012
Bottle. Reddish brown beer with a very strong and handsome foamy head. The aroma is malty and milky, and the flavour is fairly bitter with a malty and roasted nature. Overall a nice drinkable bitter beer with malty elements.

11.2 ounce bottle from Bier 30. Pours a clear reddish color with a thick white head. A sweet nose of big toasted malts and caramel. A bit of a bitter and metallic bite in the flavor alongside caramel, light fruit and toast. Very nice. Loads of flavor for 4.4%.
