Gahan Brewery - Island Red Ale
 
Pours slightly cloudy garnet colour with a thin white head.
The aroma is bread dough, hay, and a touch of fruit and spice.

The feel is quite full and creamy.
Taste is fairly complex, dough and hay with quite a dry finish. A hint of black pepper lingers in the dry finish.
Some hints of caramel and dark toast with a touch of cherry show up in the middle and become a bit more pronounced as the beer warms.
It's not a bad beer at all but the very dry finish puts me off a bit.

The Brick Red Baron

Medium thick white head, fairly short lived ut leaves a lot of lace.
Aroma is malt, somewhat sour, possibly extract or stale. There is a bit of bitter hop aroma ut it is faint and not identifiable.
The mouthfeel is fairly creamy, much better than most mainstreams.
Taste is largely somewhat sour malt with a light citrus hop taste, not bad but Brick used to make better beers than this.
The finish is fairly thin and lightly dry, again better than mainstream but not exceptional.

Beer Quote of the day

It is my design to die in the brew-house; let ale be placed to my mouth when I am expiring, that when the choirs of angels come, they may say, "Be God propitious to this drinker."

— Saint Columbanus
