3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very different beer, as one reviewer states "it will be put hair on your chest. The first sip is very bitter but it gets smoother and cleaner as the drink goes. It has a very unique flavor to it, almost a little scottish.

Draught at several in County Sligo. An incredibly drinkable ale and one eh at has enough taste to back it up. A strange Guinness-esque foam when poured. Can be tinny after other more powerful beers. One to go the distance, my Irish Doombar.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught. (backlog) Deep amber colour with a small white head. Aroma is sweet malts, some toffee, mild wood as well as some herbal notes. Flavour is sweet malts, mild grains as well as some slight floral and wooden notes in the finish. Smooth, but nothing to really write home about.

11.2 Fl Oz. bottle
Red brown with good head.
Malty/grainy aroma but also oxidized.
Medium bitterness. Some malt but I expected more and the oxidation didn’t help metters.
(Date code on bottle was L6057GD004 whatever this means ???).

Really disappointing. Nothing going on here at all. Slight malt taste, very slight. Finishes dry.

Pours red amber with a small off white head. Malt and carmel aroma and flavour. Clean, crisp with a medium body and medium carbonation. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Billed as a red ale, so that may throw me off, nice dark red pour with a tasty light malty body a little bland.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark, reddish pour with quick, beige foam. Roasted malt nose with some dried fruit. Medium body, slick texture with little fizz. Caramelly malts come through in the taste with a little hop bitterness. Nicely balanced and easy to drink. Leans toward the porter side of the spectrum. A good beer for a cool night.
