WastedYouthBrew (143) - Phila (Home of Geno's Steaks), Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2005
Whilist I roamed the streets of jersey looking for cheep ale, close friend and comrade McLats and myself picked up a six pack at Wilco’s. It was to be Murphy’s Irish red which proved to be soothing to the palate. As it turns out it was a delicious blend of finely placed hops that was not abusive to my sense of taste and smell. Sidebar, vision remained and so did touch and hearing ability. Pick up a six pack sometime and attempt to embrace Irelands green pastures and delicious sounds of the chieftons. Caps off and cheers to Murphy’s Irish Red, for you surely are a king in a peasant’s world!

Bottle 33 cl, ruikt naar deeg, mooi koperkleurig, doet qua smaak niet heel veel, licht bittere nasmaak, maar vervliegt snel.

MAGICuenca91 (67) - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, SPAIN - FEB 16, 2017
Buena cerveza. Un aroma intenso y agradable, una apariencia de color ámbar oscuro con una corona de espuma de un color beige. En cuanto a su sabor, entra con mucha facilidad y tiene un toque de dulzor que recuerda al caramelo aunque no posee demasiado cuerpo. Para finalizar su paladar es algo flojo, dado que se esfuma con rapidez y no aporta casi nada. En definitiva una cerveza que anda a caballo entre ser buena y correcta.

kaserov (419) - Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 22, 2016
Color ámbar, translúcido, con capa de espuma de dos dedos de grosor (no mucha retención). Carbonatación a tope. Aroma a malta y caramelo. Sabor maltoso y acaramelado, con final herbal aportado por el lúpulo. En retrogusto, muy leve, queda algo de chocolate en boca, pero se desvanece casi al instante. Muy básica.

hrabren (1120) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 15, 2016
0.33 l bottle at Sheridan’s Irish Pub, Zagreb, Croatia. Shared with Marko. Clear golden to amber, not really red, diminishing creamy off-white head. Heavy brown sugar aroma, caramel, dry fruit, overwhelming. Grainy flavors, sweet. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, malty caramel finish. Not my favorite.
