In bottle, thanks Gregor. Pours a cloudy amber colour with a thick white head. Aroma is quite fruity with yeast, biscuity malt and alcohol. A nice barnyard mustiness with honey, caramel and a yeasty linger. Moderate carbon ation and a dry finish. Light CO2 prickle and a lovely woody character. I really enjoyed this.

garthicus (2916) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 15, 2011
Finally (and probably temporarily) this beer brings me to the number one spot for raters of Irish beers. Bottle. Appearance: Copper, almost hazy. Medium off white head. Aroma: Mildly fruity, good amount of malt, nice yeast nose too with a pleasant apple quality. Flavour: Malt, nice caramel quality, bitter, lightly hopped with a good yeastiness too, long bitter finish, quite a nice brew I found it quite pleasant and would happily drink again.

stravale (2888) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle from OBriens, Athlone [290514]
Copper red, clear, light beige big frothy head, some lacing
Aroma of toasted brown bread, toasted caramel malts, soft berry fruits
Taste of toasted caramel, bit earthy, touch of rust, fairly bitter twiggy hops, red berry fruits
Palate - Fairly soft carb, light to medium body, light sweet berry malts. Finish of bitter toasted malts, lingering bit over bitter rusty note Im not keen on
Overall - More going on here than usual for an Irish Ale, but those rust notes spoilt it somewhat for me

A little too bitter and metallic in the end, but a great copper colour with a quite complex flavour.

patricks110 (2468) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 25, 2015
A decent Irish red with a light copper pour, light carbonation and a thin off white head. The aroma is mild and depsite a thin toasted malt, a bit of a spicy hop note theres not along going on. Easy going taste with a well balanced, lightly crisp finish. Not overly bitter.

Bottle from Auchan Market, Luxembourg City!
Pours copper colored with small head. Smell has some fruity and grassy hops. Starts with flowery hops and some roasty caramelly malts. Middle part has fruity and flowery hops. Goes into a bitter hoppy and flowery finish with some bitter malt notes.

jamaty (2036) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Bonito color miel oscuro, muy turbia y con mucho sedimento. Espuma escasa pero bastante duradera. Aroma poco definido, tirando a dulce y algo frutal Cuerpo y textura excelentes, y carbonatacion en su punto. Sabor malteado y acaramelado, manteniendo un toque frutal. Muy buen conjunto, que se disfruta cada trago.

Kita (1988) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottled, 0.5l. Slightly hazy copper color with thin beige head, soft carbonation and some yeast residue. Aroma of spicy hops, barley malt, yeast and strong fruitiness. Taste of caramel malt and dried fruits, on the other hand aftertaste is long and pleasantly hoppy. Medium to full bodied, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. I liked this one very much...

UXO (1653) - CANADA - MAR 17, 2016
Appearance: hazy pale amber with a massive fluffy ivory head, excellent retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: bready and grainy malt, earthy, grassy, light fruit and nut. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-low bitter. (5/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry moderate bitter finish. (3/5) Another Dungarvan brew with a completely ridiculous head, despite normal handling and a fairly careful pour - Im starting to detect a trend here. Fairly bland overall, with a hint of cardboard in the finish. Yet another uninspiring Irish Red. (11/20)
