3.28/5 rDev -1.8%
A: Cloudy red, even slightly muddy, good lacing, head could be fuller.
N: Fairly mild but I'm getting hints of sweet malts.
T: Improvement on the nose, a nice sweetness that one would expect from a red ale but not overpowering and the back palate is dry.
M: Not as thick as I was expecting but this actually makes it quite drinkable.
Interesting take on the style in terms of sweetness matched with dryness - overall, fairly enjoyable.

Byrne was a boxer, I hear, hence the rebranding of Byrnes Red Ale to The Boxer.
Pours a brownish orange colour, very hazed, and certainly not particularly red. Take that with a grain of salt. Head is beautifully fine, but it only leaves a little lace as it settles. Thin body. Looks decent.
Nose is clean and a little spicy, giving rise to hints of baking spice, perhaps nutmeg or cloves. Some yeasty biscuity characters and a dash of carob. Quite nice.
Much drier on the palate, leaving it quite crisp, with a surprising bitterness on the back. Very little residual sweetness or malt character, and not a great deal of complexity. Feel is fine.
Another solid beer from Rocks. Simple, but solid.

Light malt aroma with a hint of coffee and caramel notes. Slightly metallic.
Good, clear copper colour with a small white head. Fair head retention.
Dull malt flavour with a light English hop character. Not at all inspiring with a metallic finish.
Medium-light body with moderate carbonation.
Light and easy to drink but there's not a lot here to keep anyone interested.
