COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Questa l’ho presa grande e mi ha molto stufato; per fortuna che mi han dato tutti una mano in questa faticosa impresa. Una irish ale decisamente modesta, con sentori di albicocca.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 6, 2008
12 oz brown bottle. Nice fruity grainy aroma with touch of floral hops. Clear amber with small white head. Fruity grainy flavor with some roast on back end. Light body and mouthfeel. Subtle tea like hop notes. Finish is dry and clean.

Pours a copper ruby with a one finger forthy head. The nose is malty, bready, sweet, some hops, mostly grassy herbal hops. The flavor is crisp and sweet, malty, metallic dry hoppiness.

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Brewed in Ireland !! Pours a dark amber color with a off white head. Aroma of caramel, fruit, and hops. The taste is of spices and malts that ends with a slightly dry finish. It’s ok, I guess i am not a big fan of Irish Red beers.

afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2008
12oz bottle served in a flute-ish glass. Poured deep garnet topped by an off-white head. Smells of toasted caramel and a metallic hop note. Taste is fairly bland, some caramel, spicy hops, water. Leaves some clumpy lace, pretty ugly. Average at best.

Bottle. Pours cola brown with an off white head. Aroma is caramel and earth. Flavor is earthy and peaty, a touch of smoke, caramel and some hops too. Pretty good.

biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2008
Clear red with a short lived head. Caramel, fruit, earth and a bit of mint on the aroma. Nice body, strange disjointed flavor, fruity and sweet with an earthy finish and noticeable hops. Low bitterness.

3.5
Guinness4Duff (515) - Tallahassee (and Poconos, PA), Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Bottle at Stouts NYC. Amber pour with an off white head. Sweet, mildly hoppy aroma. Nice flavor, fruity, sweet caramel and some nice bitterness as well. Really like this one.
