Not a massive dan of this. Great on the palate but overall not one I'd choose to drink on a regular basis ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hackobock (2764) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2013
Draught at Pitchers, Örebro. Dark amber with a small dense creamy head. Aroma has butterscotch, red berries and light floral. Taste is sweet with almost no bitterness, low carbonation, light creamy body.

Patrickctenchi (5439) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle: Red Label as Smithwick’s Premium Red-copper with a large, oatmeal coloured head. Caramel and bread aroma. Cola-like caramel taste. Slightly peppery hop bittering. Very light, but not bad.

ManVsBeer (6866) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2013
Deep copper-red with a small creamy head. An easy to drink session ale with a malty character base.

Amber coloured water, no aroma, no palate, no taste. Like making love in a canoe f*****g near water.

johndoughty (4619) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2013
Keg in hotel that we stopped in at Bantry Bay October 2013. Gassy and lacking any real flavour. After drinking this I switched to Rose wine-at least you can taste something. One to avoid.

mathieuc (2631) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2013
Can poured into a pint glass. Pours a dark amber with a thin white cap that leaves some lacing. Aroma of old hops, slight grains. Taste is bitter somewhat and not really sweet. Slight cereals in the flavors. Body is light but it doesn’t feel watery. Carbonation is spritzy. Not much to say here.

De belles couleurs et fraîche à la pression. Un peu frustré, par son goût qui est présent, certes mais un peu trop doux à mon goût !

johnnnniee (3289) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 21, 2013
14.7 oz can from Bert’s Better Beers Pours a tawny copper color with a decent sized long lasting off white head that leaves decent lace on the glass. Smells a bit of sulfury mineral water with a bit of caramel and toffee aromas rounding out the nose. The flavor is rich and malty with a light sweet brown sugar and caramel offset with a hint of buttery bitter toffee and earthy mineral water. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet lingering mouthfeel. Feels more like a macro lager than and Irish ale, but the richer darker malts keep me a little bit interested.
