From keg at the Murderers in Norwich. Thanks to Grumbo and the Danes for the share. Dark amber coloured body. Filmy layer. spotty lacing. Bread and brown malty nose. Toffee added by moments of herbal hops to the taste buds. Semi-sweet ending. Rather thin on the swallow. So and so (Shared with Cunningham, 18.02.2017).

Draught at pub in Strandhill Ireland. A confused beer, parts are nice but the whole seems disjointed. Incredibly light and drinkable but also with a misplaced bitterness.

The looks of the beer are normal. The color of the beer is rather reddish. The beer is quite clear. On top of the beer, a nice layer of soft white foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses quickly, to leave a nice creamy drape. The smell of the beer is nice and hoppy. There are nice aromas of citrus fruits, stone fruits like peach and pomegranate. There is also that nice and rich typical Irish IPA touch. Man, do I love Irish beers. Itís so different from and better than most Dutch beers. Less bitter hops and more fruity delicateness. The taste of the beer is the same. Nice delicate sweet and sour fruit notes, with in the back a hoppy bitterness. It sure is an Irish beer. Good reason to immigrate.

Franciscan Well Rebel Red Ale
330ml bottle split between two of us at an Irish beer tasting session at my place on 11th Nov 2016. Despite visiting the brewpub in Cork (back in 2012) I have never rated any of their beers before. I know I had some when there, but no evidence of ratings anywhere. Anyway this semi-sweet malty brew was fine: red/amber body, off-white head. Red berries wrapped in caramel molasses and a woody flavoured hop leaf flavour, aroma similar in nature. Liked it.

Franciscan Well Rebel Red Ale
Bottle, bought at a local store in Split, brewed at Sharpís. Waited for me for 7 months, as I forgot to rate it last December. Oh well. Coppery amber body with a small off white head, small but lasting. A bit fizzy. Dried fruit and caramel in the aroma, some orange too. Creamy taste, raisins, fruity, light mouthfeel, but full body for the ABV technically, honey and caramel, solid carbonation, not excessive. Not a bad beer overall by any means, miles ahead of that Doom Bar garbage, not superb, but if you like a solid, light malt-driven beer and donít have a better choice, why not.
