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.

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.
