2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from sample pack. Pours a copper brown color, with firm head. I get a nutty aroma somehow. Medium bitter to it, with an oily character with a bitter like finish. Not so much to say really , average experience.
Bouteille de 341 ml (5% alc.) achetée au Beer Store de Cornwall. Dégustée le 11 juillet 2005. Bière ambrée limpide. Mousse peu, col mince et éphémère. Peu effervescente, bulles fines à moyennes. Odeur de café, de petits fruits (berries). Assez corsée, un peu sucrée, amère en finale. Manque de saveur, surtout pour ce style. DeanF (2464) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2013
Rather simplistic look to it with barely any head. Soft malt character with a vague hint of hops on the back end. Easy to drink but hard to remember. Hungarian_G (90) - - FEB 28, 2013
Ruddy red pour with foamy head of white foam leaving sticky lacing. Aroma of caramel malts, corn syrup, raisins and some minor hops. Slightly sour taste, followed by syrupy sweetness, yeasty notes and musty hops. Nothing to come back to here. Best part was the can design. asheft (3082) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2012
Weak aroma of rancid onions and maybe a a little hay. Not clear dark gold under a lacy, white cover. Decidedly not red. Flavour is mostly bitter hops with maybe a little bit of base malt. Notes of onions. Really not delicious. Light body, medium carbonation, lingering unpleasant bitter finish. djjodskins (28) - CANADA - JUN 5, 2012
Light malty caramel nose, poured light red with small and quickly descending head. Light-bodied and very boring, little bittering hops noticeable, another let-down from Trafalgar. whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2012
473ml can. Pours copper brown with a frothy white head that dissipates fairly quickly into a thin white cap with speckled lacing. Aroma of hops, malt, mild roasted notes, slight bit of fruit. reminds me of a dank, dusty cell really. taste is medium sweet lightly bitter and slightly sour. palate is sticky and oily with weak carbonation. Overall this was very generic and overpriced. I got it in an OCB taster pack. Would not buy on its own. herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2012
Can. Aroma is floral and hoppy, nutty caramel. Smooth mouthfeel. Sweet and nutty. Not bad. Nothing really special going on though. Tiger_08 (138) - Sarnia, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2012
April 30 2012. 473ml can pours dark brownish yellow odd looking colour. 1 inch white head lingers a bit and leaves sticky lacing. Aroma is some malt more grassy than sweet. Taste is rather bland. Light sweetness no real flavours stand out. Whole experience was over and forgotten in minutes. No aftertaste just dry wanting. WheatKing (1338) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - APR 26, 2012
Meh. Irish Reds can be a revelation, a surprise lurking in that liquid. This just lets you down. Sweet, not enough complexity. Looked alright though. I’d take this over dog urine any day of the week.
