COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional light hop flavour balances the sweet malty caramel taste. The addition of a pinch of roast barley during the brewing process lends a distinctive roast bite which is balanced by a crisp dry medium bitterness.

midovark (796) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - APR 18, 2017
On tap. Pours deep mahogany with long lasting, thick head. Nice hoppy aroma with hints of coffee and roasted malts. The same notes appear in taste, but the mouthfeel is quite watery. Short finish, light body and therefore it’s easily drinkable.

Una normale bitter in stile irlandese, si sente bene la parte caramellata, il uppolo è in equilibrio col malto.

drjay44 (3617) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAR 5, 2017
330 ml. bottle. BBD 28 Oct. 17. Pours a medium, well retained ivory head, with extensive lacing over a clear light brown (SRM 18) body........nose is moderate malts, with mild toffee/caramel tones, minimal esters, no hops, balance to the malts.......taste is toasted malts, with very mild toffee/caramel, light grain, dry throughout, mild lingering hop bitterness on the finish, balanced......mouth feel, medium light body, no alcohol, hints of astringency, moderate carbonation. This is on the dry,moderately bitter end of the style. It is ever so slightly harsh, compared to other Irish Red Ales. A bit more caramel/crystal and a different, or slightly lighter hop quantity would correct. It is quite clean and continues as an easy drinker. BJCP 5/3/12/3/6

Marduk (7174) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAR 4, 2017
500ml bottle. Clear dark copper color. Medium size, beige-yellowish head, stays. Sweet, caramel, dirty, damp old grass, malty in aroma. Caramel, herbal grassy hops which are very old, some old dried plums and/or raisins in taste. Milky, caramel and old grass in aftertaste. Medium carbonation. BB is good for another couple months, but whole thing tastes old. Poor brew.
