General Thoughts:
Sunburnt Irish Red is a great tasting beer, with its deep, full flavour. There is a strong hops flavour to this beer, with a slight hint of citrus coming from the hops varieties that have been used in the beer. This slight citrus note gives this beer a great, refreshing feel and flavour which makes it a pleasure to drink. This beer really packs a punch in flavour, more so than I was expecting from an Irish Red beer, the flavours are deep and well rounded, not overly bitter or overly sweet, but delivers a perfectly balanced, well rounded beer. Sunburnt Irish Red also has a moreish quality to it making you want another as soon as you have finished the one in your hand. This to me is a great quality in a beer, this beer has little carbonation, which means that you don't get overly bloated on it and can enjoy one after another. This is a great, well balanced, full flavoured beer, that can be enjoyed at any time of the year, be it in the cold winter months when your looking for something deep and full of flavour, or the summer months when your looking for something refreshing in the hot sun. I was really impressed with this beer and would highly recommend giving it a try. Another great tasting beer from the Eight Degrees Brewery.
