COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hearty chocolate smells waft up from this traditional Irish Red as a surprisingly spicy hop bouquet brings its richness alive. Its a subtle complexity. A mouth swill will anoint your palate with caramel and chocolate malts and a hint of Mocha. The malt is really given the lead role here supported by the hops performing a delightful tingle in the mid-palate. The silky smooth flavour then slips off nicely to leave a very refined and long dry hop finish.

This is like getting a gift voucher from your wife. Bereft. This has all the body of a soap sud, Theres no length, and nothing that you could actually enjoy on the taste buds. How can you produce a beer that promises so much and delivers just "meh".

explosivedog (927) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 22, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours ruby red. Aroma is all toffee and biscuits, though the flavour has some sweet fruitiness too. Little cherry, some orange, lots of peach. Really quite nice.

[8206-20160509] Tap. Sweet maple-infused toasted grassy grains aroma has a light floral note. Clear, olden amber body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Toasted grainy light malt flavour has a light bitter finish. Medium body. Interesting. (6/3/6/3/12) 3.0

jercraigs (10303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2016
2016-05-09. Copper amber body, moderate head. Aroma of green hops over malt that has a softly earthy quality to it. Flavour is a bit of an odd combination at first, lightly sweet malt base, moderately fruity and lightly bitter hop character that I cant quite place. Very smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3+ Nice but it does not suit my mood today. 6/3/6/3-4/13 On tap at Hallertau Brewbar, Auckland, NZ.
