This rich and malty ale originated in Ireland in 1710. It has a deep red color and distinctive caramel flavor from its Pale and Caramel malts. The malt sweetness is balanced by the earthy notes of East Kent Goldings hops.

    [Best served in an English Pint]

    Bottle. Poured a clear dark red-brown in color with a small white frothy head that was mostly diminishing. The aroma was that of cookie and caramel malts with a light scent of flowery hops. It tasted sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel was creamy and medium bodied. Overall an average brew.
