Poured from a cask and was a hazy orange in colour.

Smelled of sweet cereal malts with a hint of spicy hops.

Very mild in flavour with little to no carbonation. Faint bread-malts and not much else to it. Very timid for a beer.

Would I buy it again? Meh.

Hazy Amber color with modest head. Nice malts smell to nose with hint of spice. Modest hops are balanced with the malts for a nice feel; does not linger on the palate.

500ml bottle from Paul's Off-License, Donegal Town (€3.25):
Quite a disappointing offering from Kinnegar, especially after how much I enjoyed their Crossroads IPA but this one was far too subdued & light, particularly with the nose which was bordering on weak at points. Things improved slightly come the taste with more of the bitter malts & earthy hops coming through alongside some biscuit flavours but it's not a classic & I can't imagine it's one that I'd pick up again either.

Fabulously deep red ale second only to O'Hara's red ale for its aroma an caramel tones
