Hanuta06 (469) - Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Serving: from tap at Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub. Aroma: wet cardboard? Appearance: small, creamy, light brown, initial head which quickly dissipated. Fair lacing. Clear, flat, dark-red body. Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor and finish with average duration. Palate: light body, watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall: didn’t have much flavor. Watery. Nothing special.

On tap. Pours a slightly hazy red-brown with a small, creamy, long lasting, beige head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of roasted and caramel malts. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, caramel, grain and a hint of nuts with a dry, slightly bitter finish. Light to medium body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Not bad.

Subtle aroma of toasted nuts and dried fruit. Clear red-brown beer with minimal head. Initial sweetness is balanced by clean, long, and dry finish. This is not a bitter beer. Body is medium-light and soft. Very easy to drink and very good with food.

gripweed57 (2463) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 21, 2017
From old tasting notes. Clear amber orange color. Big rocky beige head. Toasted malt aroma with a hint of butterscotch in the backdrop. Somewhat dry flavor has a bubbly mouthfeel. Light bitter finish. Lacks real body or complexity.

Une bière rousse assez agréable, peu de mousse, gout de malt avec légère amertume.

Got this one from the St-Pat’s promotion at LCBO. Strong taste for a ’light’ beer. Must be the barley. Tasty beer and easy going. I like.

ebone1988 (1926) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - MAR 27, 2017
Aroma is metallic, earthy hops, slight caramel, a little dark fruit, eh. Appearance is amber, light tan head, clear. Taste is light, earthy hops, caramel, watery, metallic, not great. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light, bubbly carbonation, earthy hop caramel water aftertaste. Overall, not especially impressive, but easily crushed.

jmgreenuk (9456) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 23, 2017
Tap at Sweenys Bar, Dublin. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a long-lasting frothy white head. The aroma is light grainy malt. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a light crisp watery light fruit, metallic hop bitter palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.
