UPDATED: APR 14, 2018 A session ale at 3.7% abv. It is smooth and soothing, perfect for the long sessions or a second day on the bounce. It is subtle, not hoppy or malty, inoffensive but that is the point. Too few beers occupy this niche these days- a weak abv all day ale.

An okay Irish red tastes smooth but lacks body and aroma. St paddy’s staple ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2018 Pours dark brown, watery, sudsy head. Strong malt aroma. Sweet caramel malt flavor. Sweet aftertaste and watery mouthfeel.

Hopverdju (1833) - BELGIUM - FEB 11, 2018
Uit vroegere notities. Amberkleurig bier met crèmekleurige schuimkraag. Geur: mout, licht zoet, karamel. Smaak: moutzoet, karamel, licht bittertje, ietwat kruidig en licht fruitig. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: licht zoet, wat droog. Voor mij was het eens iets anders dan lager of stout in Ierland, tijd voor iets Palm-achtigs.

Draught in Cork, August 2016. Light caramel, floral notes, shy fruity hints. Soft, smooth, light bitter, crisp, high drinkability. Very good.

Glass at Shamrock, Nijmegen, Amber red beer, small mousse head. Aroma is malt, some hops, taste is the same, sweet, some bitterness, mild flavour, ok.

Decent Red Ale. Drinkable stuff. Not something one should go the whole evening on. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

a very mild, easy going red ale. beautiful head, although don't expect kilkenney/guinness nitro-foam (to which this ale would honestly benefit from). in terms of malt profile and hop character, don't get this if you're looking for intriguing flavours, because they just aren't there. this is a balanced beer for a barbecue to have a few, not something to ponder what the brewmaster had in mind.

Aggiebob (1554) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - NOV 16, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2017 Draft. It poured an amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was malty caramel with a light bitter taste.
