COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like an Irishman on holiday in the Canaries, this beer has a red tint but with a chilled out mellow feel. A traditional Irish style with a twist. It has subtle caramel notes balanced with a pleasant fragrant aroma from New Zealand and Australian hops. Goes really well with roast beef, lamb or a traditional Irish stew, but beware: keep out of direct sunlight.

guzgorog (784) - FRANCE - FEB 20, 2016
Brune pale avec des reflets rouge sang, fine mousse blanche. Nez trs gateau : biscuit, caramel, pain grill, rglisse. La bouche est sur des saveurs de malts grills, de caramel et de biscuit, on sent la prsence des houblons exotiques lamertume modre qui apportent une trs lgre touche de fruit. La longueur est correcte, la carbo aussi, le corps est assez lger. Bire agrable.

BlackHaddock (6629) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2016
Shared bottle at the 4th International Beer Swap in De Bierboom, Brugge on 5th Feb 2016. The only Irish beer I saw at the event. Haze to the red/brown body, fading beige head. Nose had grains, malty and chocolate like, as did the taste, leaning towards sweetness, yet there is a mild hop bitterness in the background. OK rather than Wow.

Modern-hopped (bitter orange/Seville marmalade) with lovely rich toffee/caramel malts. Like an American Double IPA, but not as strong.
