3.53/5 rDev +2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Serving Type - Bottle
Appearance - Ruby red with a burnt tan tint. Nice foamy 3 inch head and plenty of sticky lacing.
Smell - Pale malts, very mild, maybe a little herbel butter note, earthy, cloves. Not much hop or sugar presence.
Taste - AS expected, big malt up front,toffee, caramel along with some clover flavor. Herbal and earthy, along with some fruits and a little sugar at the finish. Reminds me alot of a english pale ale.
Mouthfeel - Malts pretty much coat tounge and palate with buttery, toffee and caramel flavors. Some fruits and a little sugar sweeten tounge up. Finish is malty and a little dry.
Overall - Decent, a little weak but for a 5.5% beer, it drinks well and has enough flavor to enjoy. A little more hop kick would work really well with the clover, leafy flavors. Still good, a nice beer to drink a few off at one sitting.

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
