Bottle.clear copper, off-white head. Sweet Caramell, metallic note in the finish. Thin and simple. JPDIPSO (6286) - Wauwatosa, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Bottle ala Curt. Thanks! Copper color with a few chunks adrift in the flow of bubbles. Moderate taupe colored head. Light dough and flour scents. Light caramel and a mild bitterness late. Quite fizzy and light. Very much an Irish Red, much akin to the American Amber. 5/11

Another Dungarvan brew with a completely ridiculous head, despite normal handling and a fairly careful pour - I’m starting to detect a trend here. Fairly bland overall, with a hint of cardboard in the finish. Yet another uninspiring Irish Red. (11/20) pintbypint (3827) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 21, 2015
500ml brown bottle. Colour is orange, hazy. Lots of white head with lots of sticky lace. Aroma - caramel with citrus and floral hints. Taste - citrus, caramel, cardboard, minerals, quite dry. Light in body. Overall a decent looking brew, but falls short in flavour and finish. Disappointing. Would not drink again. TheKernOwl (214) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2015
