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 Sharp’s. 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 don’t have a better choice, why not.

Franciscan Well Chieftain IPA
Cerveja âmbar, com creme de boa formação. Aroma frutado e cítrico, da mesma forma que o sabor, não muito marcantes e moderados. O sabor acentua melhor a presença do malte. Corpo médio pra leve, com baixa carbonatação e final seco. Decente, mas não memorável.

Franciscan Well Rebel Red Ale
Dec. ’15. A 0.33 l bottle from a local Tommy supermarket. This one poured a clear brownish-red body with a tiny head atop. Caramel aroma, coarser. Flavor was lightly bitter, roasted caramel, only a bit fruity. Light herbal hops spiced it up. Thin bodied, but absolutely normal for the style. Finished lightly sweet with pleasant, elegant toasted malt notes, especially the smooth biscuit. Okay, a pleasant Irish ale. It’s been a while since my last one.

Draught Good thick off-white head over clear orange beer. Rosewater, bit cheesy New World hops, sweetened orangepeel. Bitterish but ending again in rosewater; citrus. Rather refreshing; light to medium bodied. Maybe mainstream, but certainly not bad IPA.

BOTTLE 33 CL. Clear dark amber, small off-white head. Both the aroma and the taste a malt-driven, caramelized sugar, plum jam, dark honey. A hint of toasted bread and a touch of spicy hops in the finish. The somewhat abrasive carbonation is the only downside. Not bad.

Pours a clear darker shade of amber, light coppery color, topped with a medium sized and not really lasting beige head. Mild malty aroma with caramel and some sicuity notes. Some chalk but not too intrusive. Taste is mildly sweet, malty with some pleasant caramel presence. Gentle and very light. Nice one.

Clear dark amber color with beige head. Aroma has mostly caramel malts and some earthy hops. Taste starts malty but not sweet, a bit astringent and hoppy on the finish. Medium to light body with low carbonation, feels a bit watery. Not bad overall, it’s easy drinking and has a nice aroma but it tastes quite bland.

Bottle, 330 ml from Pivana. Pours dark amber short lasting off white head. Lacks body, caramel malty, sweetish, bit artificial. Main problem for me is emptiness which sucks you in after first taste.
