On-tap: Clear reddish brown, thin smooth vanilla hued cap, specks of lacing sticks. Aroma has much ado about nothing, I wiff and wiff and I get hardly anything. Faint of all faint sweet malt. Flavors are just as offering, hello, I’m I drinking something or not. Very mild, very faint, and very quick malty sweetness with a smidge of toastyness. Irrefutably tasteless. No off flavors, just no flavors. Feel isn’t watery really, just thin and lacking. I had this in a bottle some time ago and it was so bad I decided not to review it. Saw that it was on-tap so I figured, maybe, it might be a bit better. Um....nope.

Appearance was definetely the high point with this one. Nice reddish color with a decent off white head. Aroma was weak as was the flavor. Palate was a bit flat, but that could have been the conditions. Forgetable.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 [nitro draft - Sparkys Spot - Glenshaw, PA] Poured a clear coppery orange with a very creamy and lasting tan head. Very faint and mild aroma, mostly of malt but with a faint hint of apples. Malt taste at the beginning that gave way to a finish that reminded me a lot of apple cider. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel with no carbonation [nitro tap]. Very interesting flavor. I’d like to have it again at another place to see if it’s different.

Una cerveza irlandesa que se elabora en holanda... ejem sin comentarios. Aunque esta buena y no tengo acceso a muchas otras cervezas "rojas"

On tap. Thin head. Overly malty aroma and flavor. Undercarbonated in this form. Slightly disappointed.

EKGoldings (663) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAY 11, 2004
Pint glass on tap. Malt, light fruit taste, more malt and toffee on taste, hops apparent in finish but there is a dirty taste in this one I don’t like. Disappointing, I’ll try this again someplace else and rerate.

Pours copper, decent white head with nice lacing. Not a terrible beer, with nicely roasted malty flavor, but I just can’t overlook the metallic tones in the flavor.

Very good overall consistency. Good taste, good body and texture. Sharply pronounced flavor, and one of my favorite Irish ales.

Good beer overall. The aroma gets to me sometimes. It is the best when fresh so I normally try to get singles from the local store instead of a 6 or 12.
