"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.

330ml brown bottle. Amber coloured brew with a small white cap on top. Good lacing. Nose has caramel malts and a light whiff of tea. Caramel malty flavour with a light hop note. Mild malty aftertaste and light bitterness. Body is light. A pretty simple beer overall, but good for the style, and honestly better than expected.

CanIHave4Beers (3142) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Pours a hazy orange with a big tight off white head that leaves a nice lace. The aroma is very malty with some light vegetal notes that fade in time. I hate to use one beer to describe another but this smells a good bit like old speckled hen with some depth to it. Caramel, dead leaves, & some earthy hops are really the dominant players in this bouquet. The flavor is really rather nice, Iíve come to expect overly sweet & caramelized flavors from my Irish Reds, this one has a hop character that is stronger than any sweet caramel flavor lurking around this beer, herbal, earthy, and bitter, this is more like it. This is not to say that the beer is not malty, in fact that sort of autumnal nuttiness I usually associate with the best Oktoberfest beers is all over the place here. The caramel is most felt at the front and is matched with a light cherry like fruitiness, but the beer finishes with a pleasant enough roasty character. The beer has a light carbonation that carries it well across the palate. By all means a very tasty beer.

johndoughty (3856) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2011
Bottle.Bronze with a small head. Not a lot of flavour at first but after a whike there was a presence of malt with a gentle bitter finnish. A nice pleasant mouthfeel added to the experience, Finished far better than it started,

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a smallish head. Nose has a lot of malty caramel in there. Taste has a hint of sweetness without being overpowering. Interesting, and almost with a bite to it.

popery (1349) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 11, 2013
Pours a dull reddish brown. Nice, warm color. Some cloudiness. A couple fingers of off-white head. Good retention. Rich malty aroma. Lots of sweet bready malt and toasty caramel. Mild spicy hop character. Fairly simple aroma, but for a 4.4% abv beer, itís relatively big and rich. Taste is similar. Considering the strength of the beer, thereís lots of sweet caramel malt flavor and a good undercurrent of hops in the background. Carbonation is pretty low. Just a bit of prickliness. Kinda soapy. Finish is a bit mineral-ish, and the beer mostly dries out. Itís a nice, low abv red ale with a mild hop character and rich malt. Easy to drink.

Amber pour with creamy off white head and lace. Aroma is caramel malts and earthy tones. Flavor mirrors aroma with a light bitter of sorts. Light medium bodied and fizzy.
