3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at David Copperfield’s. Damn nice beer, pours an amber red with a white head of substantial rocky, mountainous foam. Aroma is grainy, grassy and lightly redolent of burnt molasses.
Medium palate, smooth and roasty in flavor. More in the wasy of lightly burnt grrains, and a caramel flourish. Finishes cleanly and drily. Exceptionally drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ruby red with amber streaks and a fluffy white head. An easy drinking amber colored beer with average malt character and light hops. Toffee and whole grains in the malt with slightly bitter, non-descript hops. Fairly dry in the finish. Clearly not the most exciting offering from SPH.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strongly sweet, hints of tobacco in the nose, creamy/buttery palate at the front but somewhat thin on the end. Decent, but I'm not going to make a fuss about it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice-looking Irish Red beer. A dry beer, with some roastiness and maltiness present. Again, this Southampton beer is very easy to drink! Yet, there is nothing in particular worth noting.

A great red irish ale, and I'm not a big fan of these either. Perfect red/copper color, slight malts in the nose. Highly wheaty and malty at the same time. An irish ale like I have never had.
