I have this on tap at o Connor every time I go there which is frequently. This is my go to beer. Poured in a typical pint glass it is a nice red Amber color. It is crisp and refreshing. This is by far o Connors best beer. Ask them to mix red nun with great dismal black ipa it's called a checkerboard, I also recommend this.

Drank this nice and cold in an Alewerks snifter.

Poured a nice red-copper (almost orange) color with about one finger worth of off-white foam that faded fast and left minimal lacing. Good amount of carbonation. Had a mild-to-strong malty (barley grain) smell through and through with a slight aroma of citrus sitting in the background. On taste; there was some sweetness and tart (citrus) up front that ultimately gives way to a more earthy malt taste.

Very good malty red ale; seems to fit more of an Irish red in spirit for me. If I had my druthers I’d ask for a little more hoppy bitterness in there.

This was good, epecially seeing as how I don't usually care too much for Ambers. Simple malt character, very very mild hops. The malt sweetness was pretty strong. Smooth and drinkable. I'd have it again, but not really my style...

I have had many of the O'connor products here in the Hampton Roads area, especially on draft at local bars. A strong but not bad malt flavor with little hoppiness. Red Nun is almost as easy to drink as their Green Can (personal favorite). The Red Nun seemed a bit flat but overall not a bad beer and could easily finish the 6-pack due the 5.5% ABV. Wish the price was closer to the adjunct American brewers.
