Zarrach76 (343) - Grenoble, FRANCE - DEC 18, 2017
Superbe teinte acajou et cuivré du meilleur effet, très légèrement voilée et mousse ivoire stable à 10mm. Le nez est sur les malts blonds (Crystal), le caramel, les herbes, le foin, la balle de blé, la vanille, la noix, la réglisse ainsi que la cassonade. Bouche ronde, un peu sèche à l'attaque, les sucres sont réduits à leur plus simple expression mais c'est cohérent avec le reste, l'amertume est légère, affirmée au démarrage pour s'évanouir ensuite, l'alcool fait carrément un roupillon (4.3%, ça manque de watt !), quelques notes de noix et de céréales assez franches, carbonatation moyenne, levures douces mais assez longues en bouche, texture un peu cendreuse et assez peu de corps. Les notes de bois sont légères tandis que le final est sur les malts pâles et les herbes avec une longueur hélas courte. Breuvage assez désaltérant mais très limité gustativement... Bouteille 50cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrève.

Geiserich (4659) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUN 26, 2017
Bottle as a gift from Ireland: Amber copper color, off-white creamy head. Aroma is malty, caramelic, fruity, light acid. Flavor is intensive malty, grains, bread, cake, some fruits, herbal hops. Easy drinkable and refreshing.

Klimaet (3085) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2017
Bottle thanks to Brian. Pours clear copper with a small white head. Aromas of sweet malts, orange, dust, cheese. Taste is sweet, malty, orange, cranberries, cheesy malty notes. Ugh

Bottle.clear copper, off-white head. Sweet Caramell, metallic note in the finish. Thin and simple.

JPDIPSO (6298) - Wauwatosa, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Bottle ala Curt. Thanks! Copper color with a few chunks adrift in the flow of bubbles. Moderate taupe colored head. Light dough and flour scents. Light caramel and a mild bitterness late. Quite fizzy and light. Very much an Irish Red, much akin to the American Amber. 5/11

RobBestwick (982) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2016
500ml bottle. Sweet bread and caramel aroma. Pours dark red/orange with a large frothy head. Oak and woods notes and an overall sweet dark chocolate malt character. Creamy texture and a touch of bitterness in thr finish.

UXO (1896) - 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 - I’m starting to detect a trend here. Fairly bland overall, with a hint of cardboard in the finish. Yet another uninspiring Irish Red. (11/20)

pintbypint (3924) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 21, 2015
500ml brown bottle. Colour is orange, hazy. Lots of white head with lots of sticky lace. Aroma - caramel with citrus and floral hints. Taste - citrus, caramel, cardboard, minerals, quite dry. Light in body. Overall a decent looking brew, but falls short in flavour and finish. Disappointing. Would not drink again.

3.2
TheKernOwl (216) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2015
- Nose: mixed peel/yeast bun; straw/woody hop; faint bourbon biscuit - Body: slightly sweet, mainly malty bitterness - Finish: slightly bitter lager malts then a little caramel return.
