Beersiveknown (5300) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 10, 2012
[email protected] Black Sheep, Dublin Hazy deep red-amber with orange and mango notes on the nose. Sticky malt reminiscent of 5AM saint, but with a much lower bitterness and little of the hop resins. Nevertheless a better Irish Red than most I’ve tried.

Two 330 ml bottles, poured first into an English pint, which I topped up with the second. Dark amber with a persisting off white head. Fruity blackcurrant and sultana aroma. Flavour of fruit and nut toffee, and 70’s sweetshop penny chew. All fairly familiar, but lifted by creamy mouthfeel and a nice, if somewhat short-lived, bitter finish. I came to this hoping to be disparaging about a mega-corp version of craft beer, and ended up enjoying it as an accompaniment to cooking. Teach me to be mealy-mouthed.

Redish brown colour, delightfully drinkable and best drank directly from tap at the Franciscan Well. If you are ever in Cork this is a great place to enjoy a whole wide range of interesting beers. Summary of Rebel Red Ale: A beer that while it has a craft beer nature seems refined enough as if it has a century of tradition.

ippopotamo36 (2531) - Rome, ITALY - OCT 19, 2015
Purchased and consumed in Serbia, bottle. Pours a very nice reddish amber color, clear and bright with a medium ivory foam. Nose: roasted malts, some fresh caramel, grass final note. Soft nose but nice. Mouth: frizzy start, watery, a hint of cherries liquor, peppery-frizzy overall. More than decent, quite tasty.

Pint from keg at The Market Porter. Nice creamy red ale, with clear Irish origin. Slightly sweet, caramelly even, but no marked aroma

RichardGretton (4784) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2007
[email protected] Burton Summer Beer Festival, 2007. Dark amber beer with a fruity, malty and lightly hopped aroma, and a crisp toffee and hopped flavour. Overall a very nice smooth beer.

Beermack (725) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Black Sheep, Dublin. Deep red with small white frothy head, plenty of lacing. Aroma full of rich almost nutty malt and earthy English hops. Taste full of depth, very full mouthfeel with a lovely degree of earthy hop bitterness, thick caramel malt, nutty notes too. A solid Irish red.

Kita (2243) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 30, 2012
Draught, half a pint. Clear deep amber color with small beige head and soft carbonation. Caramel malt and fruity hops aroma. Taste of sweet caramel and toffee malt with dried fruits note and abrupt bitter finish. Full body, creamy texture and moderate carbonation in palate. Very good one, but a bit too sweet...
