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.

O’Hara’s Irish Red has a very thin, off-white head, a brilliant brick-red appearance, lots of bubble streams, and a little bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of medium-roasted barley malt, molasses, brown bread crust, and candied fruit. Taste is of tannin, bread crust, and mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and O’Hara’s Irish Red finishes crisp, dry, refreshing, and easy drinking. Overall, this is a simple, yet good beer. RJT

Aroma is ok but nothing special. I really really like the red appearance. Taste is good. Good finish.

One of the worst smelling beers I've had. Perhaps a dodgy bottle but tasted relatively ok. Musty gone-off chocolate smell. Slightly better malty coffee taste but in general too biscuity for me.

BojanM (43) - Banja Luka, BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA - SEP 1, 2017
Crveno-bakarna boja, zućkasta pjena koja brzo nestane. Aroma susenog voća i trava. Blago gorko, osjeti se malo na dim. Ukus ruma i duvana. Na kraju, nista posebno.

Holmen2 (4287) - NORWAY - SEP 1, 2017
Bottle shared with JMD on board Fridtjofen at Tau slipp og båtbyggeri 01.09.17. Dark copper. Pale brown head and lacing. Aroma of dried red berries. Fine taste of medium dark malt, dried red berries and noble hops. Taste is lingering on.

3.2
Holmen1 (6626) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2017
Ombord på Fridtjofen, på slipp på Tau, flaske (fra trade med Sigmund) delt med skibsrederen: vakker dyprødlig kobber med flott skum som varer. Fin om enn litt beskjeden aroma, kombinert med en saftig smak med røde bær, urter, mørk karamell, ristet brød. Balansert bitterhet og høy drikkbarhet.
