3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2013 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Dark brown, nearly black. This beer is much darker than more common example of an Irish Red. Slightly boring albeit familiar. Aromas of nuts and roasted malts. Hardly any hop aroma that’s noticeable. Very smooth, malty, and roasted taste. Goes down well. A great finish with a crisp departure from the palate. Thinner than you’d expect from the appearance and smell, but overall smooth and well carbonated. A great beer. Fantastic Irish session beer. The best way I can describe it would be the Bud Light to Guinness’ Bud Heavy. Granted, they aren’t the same style, but you get my point.... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Do tap: É uma bela cerveja, precisa ser dito. Vermelha, clara, com boa formação de espuma. Aroma de caramelo bem leve. Sabor de malte, caramelo, um pouco frutada. Tem um corpo leve, desce suave, boa carbonatação. É uma cerveja decente, quase ubíqua na Irlanda, disputando com a Guinness.

Pours clear coppery brown with small-medium off-white head, which goes quickly but leaves some nice lacing and small skim.
Big caramel nose with yeast and some nuttiness. Palate follows suit, with caramel, burnt toast, slight fruitiness that tends toward pumpkin plus a touch of hop bitterness on the finish.
In no way is this complex or nuanced, but it’s a delicious session beer that’s gone before you know it.
