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. TINOZACCA (146) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 25, 2005
The best red beer I have ever had. A great color. With a fabulous head. The beer has a heavy malt and hop aroma, and taste. With a smooth finish. The body of the beer is thicker than other reds, which leads to a very good feel on the palate. BEERGUY007 (206) - Scotia, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2007
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. Balabuska (9) - SPAIN - MAR 15, 2016 does not count
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. celticg99 (22) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2001
A great smooth irish amber. Much better than pretty much any other american made amber or red

Outstanding Irish red. Refreshing and light, could drink this all night. BeerDude78 (91) - Brick NJ, New Jersey, USA - MAR 10, 2006
I actually like this a little better than guinness. It has a much more milder taste than guinness, not as bitter. The head has a beautiful froth to it. Very enjoyable! Neophus (3) - NORWAY - MAY 29, 2006 does not count
This is one of my favourites!
Gorgeous red-ish color, nice malty and semi dry. Little head, only had it from can so far. foyle (421) - Wyoming, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Served from 12 oz bottle into schooner glass.
Pours a thick, foamy cream colored head that falls slowly with plenty of lacing on the glass. Color is clear amber with abundant carbonation streams. Aroma of rich bread dough, caramel, earthy hops. Mouthfeel is medium with a slightly wet finish. Flavor is abundant with molasses, toasted malt with some char, caramel, raisin, well balanced with earthy hops. Really enjoyed this one and would buy again. Saad (104) - Jacksonville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2001
One of the best made beers in the world. When it comes to making beer they just kick-butt in Ireland. This is just another example of their superior craftmanship.
