Very sessionable beverage. Tasty enough without being outstanding. Would be happy to drink when the rugby is on. ciaranc (1306) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 14, 2012
330ml bottle. Looks the part, clear copper pour with a nice beige/off-white head. Lovely mellow caramel malty nose with a decent hop background. Flavour follows aroma, biscuit, smooth caramel malt with a spray of nicely judged soft hops. Mouthfeel is soft, a touch creamy even, carbonation is minimal. Finish is long and luscious. Excellent beer. Extraordinarily good for its price point. dgi (17) - DENMARK - OCT 7, 2012
330 ml bottle. Pours dark amber with a thin head and a very lively carbonation. Nice floral and citrus hop smell. Roasted malty notes is what makes most of the flavour, with a lingering bitter finish. The body is very thin. Nice easy drinking beer. petergaynor (137) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 24, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours dark red-brown, good off-white head. Smells toasted nutty malts. Tastes herby hops with toasted malt. Good bitter, nice surprise. Bif (2393) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle- Pours a nice amber color with a small head that fades to nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt sweetness with spice and some grain in the back ground. Taste of malt sweetness and a bit of spice. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. fairly medium body, smooth and a bit creamy. Has a distinct character. Nice drinker that goes down easy. Not bad for the style.

A really good, cheap and quaffable beer. Its not pretentious but easy drinking with a good balance. Don’t let the price mislead you into thinking this is a bad beer! Beermack (725) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2012
33cl bottle. Pours hazy copper with thin light tan head - decent amount of lacing. Aroma is of dark fruits, floral notes, sweet malt, slight nuttiness. Taste is fruity - dark fruits - floral notes, and a citric hop zing which gives a pleasant degree of bitterness. Plenty of rich malt action in the taste too - caramel especially - very well balanced. This is a very tasty and very sessionable beer, reminds me of some of the new twists on the traditional Irish Red Ale that a handful of Irish microbreweries are coming out with at the moment - lovely. downender (9008) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2012
Bottle. A collision between sweet fruity and nutty malts, and some decent hops. Toffee and caramel notes too, before a decent bitter finish. Enjoyable. Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2012
Pours a deep red colour with an off-white head. Aroma is quite malty with nutty and biscuity notes. Taste is also quite malty with some nuts, biscuit and fruit leading to a dry bitter finish from saaz hops. Not bad. omega (899) - NEW ZEALAND - FEB 10, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2013 A nicely hopped beer which is not too overpowering. Colour is a nice amber red and has a nice soft carbonation.
