COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our red ale is where it all started. A selection of light and dark malts provide the distinctive caramel notes; yeast and Slovenian hops complete the ingredients of this captivating brew. Pours a bright, coppery red, with a moderate head. On the nose, malty caramel aromas are predominant. On the palate, it has a broad, generous texture, with fairly substantial, mouth filling bitter caramel notes and a well-balanced long lasting finish.

500ml bottle from Reilly's, Lisnaskea (£2.79):
Quite a disappointing offering from Glens of Antrim & one that I'd been hoping for more from, it was a little poor with the sweetness a little more pronounced than expected too. There wasn't a great deal of variety to the nose & although the beer did improve slightly with the taste, it's not likely that it's a beer that I'd go back to again.

mR_fr0g (14275) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2017
Bottle at home picked up from Crumlin Tesco. A nutty reddy brown coloured pour with a lasting loose off white head. Aroma is semi sweet, red berry, nutty malts, light toffee. Flavour is composed of nutty malts, brown bread, light toffee, tangy red berries. Palate is rounded, creamy, highish carbonation. No bad thing.

AshtonMcCobb (7101) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2017
Bottle from the Vineyard, Belfast. Appearance - deep amber, honey like. Decent head. Nose - a touch of honey and astringent malt. Taste - more honey, some sweet cherry, then some malt astringency. Palate - close to medium bodied. Tangy and a little sweet. Overall - not as good as I'd hoped.
