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.

First try for this type of beer. The taste is smooth, nice flavor and reddish color. Not a bad one but I still prefer the stouts if I go for an Irish brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerRenter76 (1002) - Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2017
Originally rated on 12/18/08. An irish red but it had a brown body? a thick tan cap that quickly disappated. Aromas and flavors of sweet malts, caramel, and a light touch of smoke, some hops made a brief apperance. Overall it was o.k., but kinda average.

GoddamnNoise (123) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - APR 29, 2017
33 cl. bottle @ Home. Aroma: yeast aromas are the most noticeable. At lower levels, there is some nuances of bread crust, caramel, bread, roasted malts, cocoa. Appearance: deep amber color with medium-to-high head thickness. Beige foam made of small-to-medium sized bubbles. No hazyness. Low-to-medium retention. Low Brussels’ lacing. Taste: medium sweetness, low bitterness, no sourness. Flavors of bread crust, caramel, burnt caramel, roasted malts, yeast, bread, cocoa, grains. Palate: light-to-medium body, watery texture, low carbonation, short quite bittersweet finish with flavors of bread crust, roasted malts, caramel, yeast, bread. Overall: pretty amber color making promises that flavor and aroma can’t keep. Not very refreshing nor pleasant. Quite simple and boring. Hops are not noticeable nor in the flavor nor in the aroma. Balance is in the malt’s sweetness side.

midovark (848) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - APR 18, 2017
On tap. Pours deep mahogany with long lasting, thick head. Nice hoppy aroma with hints of coffee and roasted malts. The same notes appear in taste, but the mouthfeel is quite watery. Short finish, light body and therefore it’s easily drinkable.

Una normale bitter in stile irlandese, si sente bene la parte caramellata, il uppolo è in equilibrio col malto.

16. 3. 2017, Ljubljana, Gas station. 3rd one in row, so measurement was not done by protocol. Will have to try it again to rate it properly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
