Laiteux et léger, cette bière a des notes fruités avec un arrière goût de noix qui reste dans la bouche. À tester Grzesiek79 (4487) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 11, 2012
Dobry Red Irish Ale. Mosna, jakby kożuchowa piana i rudawy z odcieniami krwistej czerwieni kolor. W smaku intensywnie aromatyczno gożkawy. Polecam sagmarium (97) - SPAIN - NOV 16, 2013
Classic red ale from the best Brewpub you can find in Dublin. Malt caramel and medium alcohol. Good carbonatation and nice head. strugglebox88 (3) - Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2011 does not count
Slightly roasted nose with a bit of hay, caramel, and bread in the malt - fermented fruit and grassy hop - a bit doughy - perhaps a hint of clove, raisins, and chocolate... Pours a great golden red that’s clear and sparkling, lumpen frothy off-white head (fairly generous)... Overall very sweet taste - mild bitter bite up front that quickly dissipates and then rounds sweetly into a caramel desert sort of finish - not as much hops as I would have expected from a red - I’d forgotten I was drinking Irish vs. an American red... Extremely palateable and approachable even for a novice - it’s light, thin, and creamy with a soft carbonation and a slow finish.
Overall, I’m a big fan of American Red Ales so this wasn’t quite what I was craving at the time - but put this alongside Killian’s and other Irish Reds and I’ll pick it in a heartbeat. This is quality stuff. Koskela (505) - Marysville, California, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Nice red color but a bit hazy. Little head. Smells like they used a hint of chocolate malt. The taste is a nice sweet red ale taste with a touch of chocolate. As you continue to drink the taste grows on you. Its a light, medium bodied beer with mild hoppiness. Its not what i was expecting for an irish ale but good the same.

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.
