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.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2006
Amber coloured,decent off white head. Sweet, malty, caramelly aroma with some nutty hints. Flavour is malty too with a little bitterness. Dry finish.

Nejhleader (1550) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2006
taste is a bit sweet, fairly smooth body, but overall didn’t seem all that impresive to me.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2006
Dark brown colored, slight hints of red. Big beige head. Sweetness, toffee, caramel and nuts in aroma. Medium bodied. Rye, nuts and sweetness in flavor, aftertaste lasts with rye, nuts and dryness. Lace in glass, fine brew!

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2006
Pours a nice amber color. Not a lot of aroma, sweet malt with a hint of fruit/hops. Flavor is malty, with a touch of bitterness.

webjedi (250) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - APR 18, 2006
Bottle pour head died quite quickly. Flavors more closely to a porter than a traditional Irish red. Reddish-brown in color, with pale yellow head. Sweet malty flavor, very little hops on the palate. This beer is better once it nears a room temperature, as it is cold, it comes across a lot more bitter. Slight light lacing on the glass. Generally okay session beer, but not spectacular.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 9, 2006
Clear dark reddish brown color with a medium creamy off-white head that lasts a while. Aroma caramel, some grain and light fruit. Flavor of sweet fruit and caramel followed by grain.

Lowe1983 (1589) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2006
Pours a dark red color with thick tan head. Fruit aroma along with caramel. Doesn’t really apeal to me at all. Flavor is the same but reminds me of Killians only slight better. Slightly being the keyword. Not good at all.

anders37 (26251) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2006
Bottle. Dark amber colour with a tan head. Malty fruity aroma. Malty fruity flavor with some hints of apples. Malty aftertaste with some bitterness.

thehoff (598) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2006
A little too sweet for an irish red I think. Red in color so that lives up to all expectations. A bit dry in the finish, and a little bit of a moldy grass flavor. Not the best thing I’ve ever tasted but not the worst. Its been a while since I’ve had any other reds so I really cant compare but I vaguely remember Murphys Red being a bit better.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2006
Pretty reddish brown color. Fairly malty sweet aroma. Some nice malts, hops were a little lacking. Beer was pretty overwhelmingly sweet. Decent palate. Average beer.
