It might just be a "placebo effect," but I swear that this smells like Heineken, and it somewhat carries over to the taste. Decent toasted malt flavors, very little hop bitterness. Aftertaste has a distinct toasty/nutty quality to it. Easy to drink, but a little unexciting.

Reid (2393) - Salem, Oregon, USA - DEC 9, 2003
Bought in the 14.9 oz can brewed by Heineken in Amsterdam. Amber in appearance with a large frothy off white head..quite attractive actually. The smell is pretty weird though..it smells like Heineken Lager just a little more malty. The taste is mostly malty, a slight buttery tinge,sweet with small hop bite at the end. A very creamy and smooth beer on the tongue. Its a drinkable ale..would make a good session beer.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - DEC 8, 2003
On tap. Amber color, creamy head. Malty nose. Flavor was malty, a little toasty with a bit of caramel and some bitterness in the finish. Smooth, but a bit watery. Decent.

For a beer that had the word red in its name it's very pale. good dry flavor that is kind of bland in retrospect and fairly weak, watery tasting.

Dorwart (2562) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 28, 2003
Nice thick creamy head which crater nicely and lasts a long time. Very attractive in the glass. Mainly malt aroma that is slightly dry and bitter also. Color is a very nice dark red/amber with little carbonation. Flavor is well balanced. Sweet malts up front and a nice bitterness in the end from the hops. Dry in the mouth. A decent Irish ale.

UNCCTF (541) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2003
A very malty aroma and flavor, with a nice bittering feel in the very back. It almost tastes pilsner-ish. Confusing, but easy to drink.

Bottle: this brew truly earns it's title of "Red Beer". As red a beer as I've seen - whatever that is worth. The aroma includes malt, some hop and dust. Flavor is kind of odd. A little malt, a touch of hops. Like wildchefbill said - smooth and easy to drink, but no at all impressive.

haddon90 (1630) - Newport Beach, California, USA - NOV 1, 2003
Pours a dark amber/ruby color with a little white head. Harldy anything from the aroma. Maybe some malt, I don't know. Not much of a flavor. Kind of thin and watered down. Not the best beer I've had.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2003
Pours dark amber/copper with a white, thin head. Strong lacing. A weak malty aroma with a flavor to match. Sweet but a little watery. No bitterness and little hop flavor. Not creamy as I expected. A little skunked. I can taste the Dutch in it. The can stated "Product of Hollland". Smooth and easy to drink, but not at all impressive.
