Cask Stillage at the Memorial Hall, Northwich 22/09/2006 Fruity rich aroma. Amber coloured and slightly rich and creamy on the palate. Fruit flavours. Some sourness and dryness in the roast malt finish.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2009 Draught, Bull and Castle, Dublin. Bright ruby with a persistent collar and lace. Woodsy cask-like hints on the snout, joined by grapefruit and blackcurrant. Notes mention Titanic, Galena, Cascade... Blackcurranty hop tang, soft nutty malts, caramel, insinuating citrus. Surprisingly tangy, well-hopped red ale.

Gangstergafje (1101) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2017 The beer had a beautiful amber/ruby red color. The color is vey nice. The beer is quite clear and looks just like an Irish red should. The beer pours a nice layer of soft white foam. The looks are appealing. The smell is nice, a little mild though. There is the aroma of almonds, hops and some roasted barley aromas, containing minimal hints of coffee. I can also smell some alcohol and a nice sweetness, containing some nice fruity notes such as strawberry and maybe passionfruit. A nice smell, but a little mild. The taste is also a bi mild. It misses some of the fruitiness and hops that were in the smell and most Irish Reds have. It isn’t the best Irish Red on sale, but it sure aint bad. The palate is normal.

Tap at JJ Harlows, Roscommon, 26th July 15. Dark red brown, reasonable off white head that dissipates. Aroma slight iron, hops, sweetness. Taste is pretty smooth, not a bad Irish, amber ale

bhensonb (15088) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Tap at Kellys Bar in Cobh, Ireland. Pours dark and ruddy, but very clear. Not real. ;( Aroma is malty, and floral. Med body. Flavor is malty, but there’s floral and even a bit of spice to help out. Smithwicks sorta kinda. Enjoyable in the land of Guinness.

MissPxx (970) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2017
Warm and fruity aroma with a ruby red colour. Warming and at the same time fresh and summery. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
