Sweet aroma with caramel and salami tones.
Some bitterness, then nothing.
Like a watered down version of Kilkenny or Dublin Red from Slottskällan. Please stop now. hershiser2 (3266) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2004
Brown in color, small, but fluffy head.
Not much of a smell... if you dig deep you may find a tiny bit of grass, as well as a hint of smokiness.
Smell it? Tastes exactly the same.
Good mouthfeel, and average drinkability... nothing special, but drinkable. Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 27, 2004
Red beer. Whatever. Red beer. Whatever. Red beer. Whatever. Red beer. Whatever. Red beer Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2004
Head subsides quickly over a reddish brown body. Sweetish malty nose.
Roasted malts with a hint of heavy coffee. Medium body, not bad but neither exemplar. surfmurf (85) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2004
Why a Dutch brewery is making an Irish Brew is beyond me. The Smell of this impressed me as did the appearance which I thought were both very good. Looks can be deceiving though as the beer seemed harsh and lacked a smooth rich flavor that i expected from this. Still worth a try but it could never become my regular staple.

I was pleasantly surprised when I cracked one of these bad boys. It's got a nice red color and has a nice caramel flavor. This one sits well with my palate so I'll be buying it again. SpringsLicker (3642) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2004
Pretty amber beer with a slightly sweet roasty flavor. Enjoyable session type Irish Ale. Braudog (6719) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 7, 2004
Nice sticky foamy head over ... you guessed it ... a red beer. The aroma is airy and starchy like a green bottle import lager, but the flavor has just a hint of coffee grounds mixed with a nice smooth caramel malt. Nice "in between" beer.

This is one of my personal favorites, but it never fails me. The head is small, but that only goes so far. A very good beer in my book. Norton (333) - Southside, Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2003
Draft. Only slightly reddish deep amber body; sparse, thin head. Bores my tongue to death; no liveliness to this brew. Mildly noticeable bite. Easily forgettable.
