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 isnt 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

cellar (508) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 13, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2009 @ Franciscan Well in Cork: Warm clear reddish amber, short lasting head, weak notes of hops, getting stronger in mouth where malt fruit, and yeast is adding up. Sweet flavour, and lack of finish.

beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - JAN 3, 2010
on tap @ the Bodega, Cork. nice red, and after having the typical euro trash beers for a week it was so nice to have a micro. good flavor and body typical of a red, true, its probably not braking the mold, but a very good beer just the same.

Pours an amber/red colour. Taste is malty with some nice dried fruits, a good example of the style
