look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

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
M: mealy

It's ok, but I don't plan a return trip.

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
