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.

A great smooth irish amber. Much better than pretty much any other american made amber or red

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!

foyle (436) - North Carolina, 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.

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.

Excellent ale. Best at a bar or bought 6 at a time. It gets a little skunky after sitting in the fridge for a few days.
