kwoeltje (2234) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JUL 22, 2003
Mid-copper color with nice head and great lace. Very mild. Hint of fruits. Mild but distinct hop finish.

BeerLimey (2155) - California, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Dark reddish appearance, good head formation. Malty, fruity aroma. Sweet malty caramel palate, decent flavor, medium bodied, good bitter bite in the finish. Respectable.

pivo (2689) - GERMANY - OCT 22, 2004
Light nose, auburn color, nitro-tap creamy head. Quick light toasted malt with some caramel in the middle. Then a flash of bright hops comes and goes quickly, giving way to a metallic finish. Nice effect, but thin and not that clean overall.

duff (5486) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2002
Was pretty good, but a bit timid in flavour, and for me had a bit of a buttery taste which i didn't mind, but didn't like.

YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2005
Draught at the Proterhouse in London: Small layer of a frothy head which lasts long. Light red color. Bubbles clinging in the shape of a worldmap on the glass.Toffee nose and cellery taste. So trivial.

argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 25, 2005
(Covent Garden Location, London) Clear light copper body topped by a creamy off-white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is mild, medium sweet. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, coffee, some nutty, light chocolate. Smooth, light-medium body.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2007
[email protected] Porterhouse, London. Amber colour, mediumsized creamy and thick beige head. Wooden and slightly fruity hoppy aroma. Flavour is flowery and wooden along with some slight hoppy and caramelly hints. Refreshing, but nothing that special.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2007 Draught @ Porterhouse, London. Deep antler red colour. Cream head. Cream/hoppy, lemon and peach nose. nice sweet and bitter after taste. Decent.

FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 30, 2007
Keg (Porterhouse, Dublin) Reddy brown, nitro head. Nitro kills the aroma, but some sickly sweetness detectable.Flavour similar, slightly sour, but definitely a bit sweet. Not worth going out of ones way for - "red ale" is a stupid modern marketting concept, anyway.

larsga (7680) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2008
Thin creamy offwhite everlasting head. Body is reddish brown. Light aroma, mostly malty with peppery hops. Watery metallic malty taste with a dry mealy edge. Roasty grainy aftertaste, quite long. Peppery hops. Nice, but not their best. (0.2l draft, Porterhouse Temple Bar, Dublin.)
