3.14/5 rDev -9.2%
Poured chilled in standard ale glass
A: dark copper color; small head; no lacing
S: twiggy; bad yeast aroma detracts from the rating
T: earthy flavored red ale; hops on the bittering side; malt slightly carmelized; light complexity; astringent
It's ok, but I don't plan a return trip.

3.29/5 rDev -4.9%
330ml bottle bought from Lighthouse Wines, Jordanstown...
Poured a mahogany brown colour... Creamy tan head poured quite thick then faded slowly to thin layer... very light carbonation... some decent wispy lacing...
Aroma - Nice strong caramel maltiness, some light fruitiness (figs and raisins), biscuity hints, light molasses hints, some nice nutty sweetness, light peppery hops, faint toasted bread notes...
Taste - Lots of caramel maltiness, some light spicy hops, light nutty sweetness, maybe a faint hint of nutmeg and cinnamon, some biscuitiness, some light prune and fig notes...
Feel - Nice and smooth... Medium bodied... Very, very quaffable - a nice session beer...
Overall - A decent bog standard Irish Red Ale... worth a try
