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.

bartlebier (4297) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 19, 2018
50cl , Maruhn, Import sticker "Schankbier" 4,3% ha. - - Capped just after Patrick's Day. - Love the subtle malt depth here, serving a range of natural earthy flavours from chestnut to mild coffee roast, milk chocolate and chicory powder. Tea-like qualities as well, add to that dry herbal honey, while remaining typically light-hearted and sessionable: Hibernian teatime in a pint. - - Could maybe use a bit more red berry-like hop sparkle to make it shine, but the colour depth of earthy malts is engaging in itself.

Aroma: Caramel and some smoke notes. Appearance: Dark brown/black color with hazy liquid and beige head. Taste: Medium bitterness and light sour notes. Palate: Medium body with creamy texture and average/soft carbonation. Long bitter woody finish. Overall: Good memories. Pairs with cheese and meats, also a good snack.

Bottle. Reddish brown with an off white head that's very well retained. . Aroma of the crusts of strong bread, slight mocha, vague herbal and fruity notes. Drier than most of these supposed Irish Ales with a touch of Old Peculier about it. Drier still at the end. Plain but OK.

Аромат специфичный немного отдает дымком и солодом. Цвет богатый, много оттенок бордового и коричневого цвета. Вкус очень водянистый. Чувствуется солод и хорошая горчинка при глотке. Пиво питкое несмотря на большую карбонизацию. В целом среднее пивко.

Sehr malzig. Leicht süß aber auch eine undefinierbare Bitternote mit im Antrunk die nicht so recht passen möchte

Bottle from Dan Murphy’s on 25 March 2018. This is my first beer from this Irish brewery and it was very good. Filled the nose with caramel and toffee aromas and the mouth with big malty flavour. Medium to full bodied with a sweet caramel finish. I look forward to trying more of their beers.

Very malt sweet aroma. Clear red, with a long lasting tanned head. Medium sweet taste. Medium body, oily texture & soft carbonation.

mviljamaa (263) - FINLAND - MAR 21, 2018
Pours with a slight, quite bubbly head that doesn't stay very long though. Color is brown, leather-like and not very clear. Quite okay color actually. Aroma is noticeably metallic, but it's not bad. Light maltiness, cask, rosehip, faint red berry mash, cellar. Palate is very nice, has weight and is not watery, fills the mouth nicely. Aroma is also a bit metallic, but not as much as the aroma. Refreshing and tasty malt body that's not too rich. Slight hoppy bitterness on tongue, spring water (and spring water -like freshness), faint lingon berry comes in after taste. A light and very fresh red ale that's not too rich or sweet at all. A bit more towards the IPA style. Very balanced as well. This would be awesome refreshment after work or work-out.

Desverger (14694) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2018
[email protected], Copenhagen - Dark Amber brown pour with off white head. Sweet and toasted malty with some caramel and treacle, medium body, sweet malty close.
