An Irish red ale that predates Arthur Guinness's famous brew, it is a pleasant beer that contains both a sweet and bitter taste at the same time with a fruity aroma. Ideal for those heavy sessions when you don't want a massive hangover. This beer deserves more credit in my opinion

On the once a year I drink Irish beer, I prefer this or a black and tan depending on my mood. It's decent, just as the ratings indicate, but nothing outstanding. Surprisingly low alcohol in this one, probably done that way on purpose so you can have several of them at a time.
