Ruby red with amber streaks and a fluffy white head. An easy drinking amber colored beer with average malt character and light hops. Toffee and whole grains in the malt with slightly bitter, non-descript hops. Fairly dry in the finish. Clearly not the most exciting offering from SPH. apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 21, 2003
A nice-looking Irish Red beer. A dry beer, with some roastiness and maltiness present. Again, this Southampton beer is very easy to drink! Yet, there is nothing in particular worth noting. Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2004
On tap at The Gate. Poured deep orange/red copper, aroma was some hops. Taste had hops at the front then almost a pause and then some hops near the end. Smooth and fairly basic. DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - MAY 3, 2004
On tap at David Copperfield’s. Damn nice beer, pours an amber red with a white head of substantial rocky, mountainous foam. Aroma is grainy, grassy and lightly redolent of burnt molasses.
Medium palate, smooth and roasty in flavor. More in the wasy of lightly burnt grrains, and a caramel flourish. Finishes cleanly and drily. Exceptionally drinkable. WhiteAlePower (92) - Long Island, New York, USA - FEB 25, 2008
Draught at SPH Brew Pub. Deep red pour with a wispy head. Aroma was malty and hops. Flavour was similar with a bit of roasted hops and a bitter/dry finish.
