Nothing special. Kind of tasteless.

Irish Red Ale. One of my first Irish beer.

The smell of it I find it really smooth. A little of bit of that caramel touch.
The carbonation is also great. You have almost 2 finger of head that stays until you drink the beer.

The taste is really different than any other that I try for a red ale, its really creamy and the taste powerful but not too strong. I don t find anything spectacular about that beer, if you are in Quebec the Boreale or the Belle Gueulle Red ale will do a much better job

Would I recommend it ? Its a small Yes. Just give it a try if you are at the bar but don't buy a whole pack
