Nice copper body, foamy beige head, malty and yeastly nose. Balanced roasted malt taste. Smooth roasted palate. Drinkable but not a big one.

Canned with nitro: Amber ale with huge white nitrohead. Mild, mainly sweet aroma with some nutlike notes. Flavour is mild, with some malty sweetness. Hazelnuts. Faintly roasted. Thyme. Smooth and creamy palate. Great drinkability.

50 cL can. Pours almost clear and hazzlenut brown with a dense creamy slight off-white head. Mild malty, slight roasted and light bitter hops aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Holds a mild bitterness and a light roasted malt note swept in mild caramel. Mild caramelish flavour in the finish.

patricks110 (2459) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 23, 2008
A creamy beer with lots of head. A great beer to go with a meal. Better on tap or in a can than in a bottle. Nice amber gold appearance adds to my appeal for the beer.

BarossaLuke (552) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 16, 2008
Draught can version, not as good as what I’ve had on tap previously. A nice thick creamy head, with vibrant amber colour. Soft fruit and malt on the nose which follows through to the palate. Finishes a little watery with just enough bitterness to keep it together. An easy drinking style, but as I said better on tap.

Nitrogen can 500ml
Red Lipton ice tea body colour with perfect creamy froth with bubbles going down effect, as my friend chmurarz with whom I was rating said: no alcohol, no bitterness, no nothing, smooth and mellow and neutral as nitrogen in the air. There is some hint of hoppy bitterness from tanning influences on your tongue even though being creamy smooth in texture. All in all I don’t like it due to it’s simplicity of taste as compared with at least many other better IRA (Irish Red Ales). It tastes like almoust perfect immitation of a bit wattered ice Tea.
