hrabren (1362) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 11, 2015
On tap at Craft Room, Opatovina, Zagreb. Amber to ruby red, small tan creamy head. Light fruity, sour fruit, malty background, faint aroma. Creamy, light, soft carbonation. Refreshing, but empty. Watery texture. Nothing special.

Buena Irish red, algo superior a las marcas más populares de este tipo de cerveza. En mi opinión tiene gran sabor y color pero le falta un poco de fuerza y de gas. Al menos la que tomé yo, no hizo apenas espuma y tenía poco gas, un tema que personalmente me incomoda bastante en una cerveza, por lo demás genial. Las cervezas irish red, sobre todo las que son irlandesas de verdad, no suelen estar muy bien valoradas pero a mí me encantan, así que si quieres escapar de los 3 marcas industriales de siempre pero no eres capaz de encontrar las artesanas raras americanas (que son las que están en primera posición) aquí tienes una buena opción de cerveza semiartesanal y de calidad.

cervmagpt (881) - PORTUGAL - OCT 13, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 15A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: moderate-low malt aroma with caramelly notes and slight diacetyl. clean fermentation profile and no hops discernible. APPEARANCE: dark ambar to reddish copper. translucent. low beige head with average retention. TASTE: very little caramel flavour with a roasted presence. medium-low bitterness with a dry and somewhat roasted finish. clean fermentation profile. PALATE: medium-light to light body with moderate carbonation. OVERALL: a good irish red ale more balanced towards roasted and dry finish, but still a good style example.

Cunningham (8279) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2015
Well it was not bad, but it was nothing to write home about either. Done.
Amber color with a thick off white head. Good lacing. Looks very nice. Some roast, mild fruity and some toffee. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Ok the flavor do not vanish fast. So nothing wrong with it. Just not my cup of ale.

flying_pig (1627) - SCOTLAND - JUN 22, 2015
Pint at The Porterhouse, Covent Garden, London (£4.10):
Not a bad tasting beer, pretty much as you would expect from the style and the brewery without it truly excelling or standing out from the crowd. The beer had quite a good balance and a nice, easy-going flavour with some good earthy malts and sweetness but it’s probably not one I’d seek out again.
