Belle couleur rouge/pourpre avec des reflets cuivrés, transparente, et une belle mousse dense homogène beige. Nez classique sur le caramel, le pain chaud, un peu de pruneau, un houblonnage léger, un peu de fruits rouges (cerise, mûre et fraise), de la groseille, de la gelée de coin... Simple, efficace ! Bouche souple, corps léger sans trop être sur l’eau, alcool au niveau de ses 5.8% et qui relève bien les notes maltées et les sucres résiduels, amertume tout aussi légère mais efficace sur la longueur avec une petite astringence, levures très nettes en rétro-olfaction avec quelques notes de bois et de résine. Une petite note métallique traine à la marge, mais sans que ce ne soit trop prononcé. Sur le final s’exprime de belles notes de noix fraiche fort agréables. Un breuvage assez simple mais homogène et bien structuré dans un style brassicole (les Irish Ale) plutôt sage à ceci près que le houblonnage est à l’Américaine. Sympathique sans casser des barres... Bouteille 36cl (12fl.oz), V&B Grenoble.

Draught at Karl Strauss, Carlsbad. Clear orange colored with a small off-white head. Fruity aroma of caramel, hops and biscuits. Fruity flavor of caramel, hops, bread and biscuits. Hoppy finish.

Medium body malt profile, low on the hops. Decent beer, quite simple, would be great with more complexity. Karl Strauss SD.

Una Irish Ale de color rojizo de poca carbonatacion y espuma. Aroma a lucuma con notas de manzana verde. Sabor redondo y equilibrado a lucuma con notas cremosas y lácteas. Impecable!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ONe of the better irish reds. Smell aof copper and gentle english style floral hops. Lightly toasted and sweet. Very nice finish. Light body. Not overly flavorfull.

On tap at Karl Strauss. Fruity aroma with pepper. Creamy malty taste. Fruity hoppy notes too.

Bottle pour - barely a layer of foam. Sweet malty aroma with flavors of caramel and raisins.

I really enjoyed this one! Maybe it is because I’m Irish. Loads of toffee and caramel malt lend to prune flavors. Whispy tan head supported above a rich copper color. Pass me the corned beef for this one.
