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.

bottle at home. Has a great malt flavour with an orangery background which Im guessing comes from the hops used. One very beutifull beer and I really want more of this.

TheKernOwl (215) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2015
Modern-hopped (bitter orange/Seville marmalade) with lovely rich toffee/caramel malts. Like an American Double IPA, but not as strong.

Bottle @ home. Beautiful somewhat clear ruby red color, medium sized beige head. Smell and taste malts, lightly a sweetish hint initially, nice hop bitterness, decent hoppyness overall, moderate to medium bitter. Decent body, medium carbonation. Quite pleasant.

Draft at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Hazy amber color, dense creamy head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of peppery caramel. Taste is bittersweet malty and peppery. One of the better in this style that I’ve had.

goozen (4122) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2013
Tap at Farringtons, Dublin: Clear amber coloured brew with an great caramel taste to become addicted, also some New Zealandic hoppy aftertaste. Fun fact the day i ordered this beer was very sunny in Dublin and i was sunburned. Staff behind the bar noticed the sunburned fact, its was quite hilarious reaction of both sides.

beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - JUL 8, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a translucent reddish brown, medium to small off white head, very little lacing. Aroma of bread, caramel, tropical fruit, marmalade. Taste is the same. Extremely well balance, and for a style that is usually overwhelmingly sweet malt that becomes cloying after a very short time, this is a rarity due to being enjoyable bottle after bottle, good session ale.
