Just another great beer from Ireland together with its mate, Stout. The taste is impressive.

Coffee and Chocolate Accents . Smokey flavor. Tart but not too bitter. Beautiful foamy head. Very dark beer. Not as dark as guiness(or bitter) and the head is better. This beer would also be cool to make into a mousse or pudding.

Most ales have similar ingrediants, but this one had a very different flavor that I don't find in other ales.

My personal choice for an Irish beer. Similar to Killians, but better yet, since it is ofcourse actually made in the Emerald Isle. I had it at Greek bar though, which was okay, but I would prefer drinking it at an Irish Pub to enhance the atmosphere.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2008 Cremmy and sweet this is a great brew. It is a more authentic version of Kilians and quite tasty. Had it in a pub on tap and like it very much. Not overwellmed but it’s darn good.

Great beer! Dark black, reminds me of Beamish. Same style, thick black, awesome head. Tiny packed bubbles in the head that lasts forever! Nice and creamy. I will get this one over and over. Tastes like espresso, some carmel overtones. Great beer by some great people! I would love to get this one on tap.

Refreshing bitterness and harsh malt sweetness melt into this prototype of irish red beers. The colour is caused by the special malt mixture that also gives this quite unique taste. Some might think this beer is a bit old-fashioned but, name it ’New Craft Copper Lager’ and it’ll please a lot of people. The carbonation is relatively strong which enhances the refreshing character, the body is light to medium. And the finish is nicely dry hoppy. A classic brewing style and a refreshing but characterful lager.
