COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich and malty ale originated in Ireland in 1710. It has a deep red color and distinctive caramel flavor from its Pale and Caramel malts. The malt sweetness is balanced by the earthy notes of East Kent Goldings hops. Cheers!

I don't generally like Irish red style beers but this one is easily drinkable and looks great in a glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet taste and smell almost like cherry. A little caramel as well. Decent beer but could have more flavor

From bottle. Attractive beer; nice red hue, typically active with a touch of head. Good lacing. Smells like a cherry cough drop. Taste is more cherries with a mildly medicinal finish. Really not as bad as it sounds.

Decent slightly red pour w/out much head or lacing. Aroma is kinda funky. Taste is primarily malty. Pretty run of the mill. Ok.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 12, 2013
from Mondial de la Bičre 2013, Mulhouse - quite clear ruby-brown beer with a modest foam left; strong notes of caramelish malts, hints of red fruit marmalade and nuts; medium-bodied; earthy and a bit umami; subtle carbonation; gentle bitterness and a malty, earthy finish with some reminiscence of caramel
