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.

Gangstergafje (836) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2015
Beautiful dark red color. The beer pours a white foam. The beer is cloudy. The smell is very fruity. It is a very fresh smell, with a nice sour hint. There are some citrus fruits in there. The smell is good. It has a nice bitterness right from the start. Also the citrusy hops are present in the nice taste. The bitternes is quite strong, I wouldnt recomend drinking this ale after a sweet beverage or snack. But in a neutral mouth it is delicious. Glad I brought this home from Ireland.

Leicht rtlich mahagonifarben. Angenehm malzig, karamelliger Duft. Antrunk erfrischend spritzig, dann breiten sich Geschmacksnoten von Brot und Karamell im Mundraum aus. Angenehm herber Nachgeschmack.

Bottle. Copper, very thin head. Not unpleasant at all, but not terribly exciting either.

Theydon_Bois (17973) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle at the Long Dock, Carrigahalt, 05/12/14. Reddish amber with a decent beige covering. Nose is biscuit, toffee, malt tones, toasted brown sugar. Taste comprises caramel, red berry fruit, biscuit malt, sweet tones, light hop presence. Medium body, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent enough for style, good balance, some hops evident, not one that runs the blandometer into amber!

massingasetta (693) - Mnchen, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2014
A good red ale in the style of craft beers. Eight degrees has hit the nail on the head with this beer. It has hints of caramel and a hoppy taste. A really good beer in the Irish tradition.
