Default Festa brew Irish red clone ??

The second brew I ever made was a kit festa Brew Irish red. Best red I ever had, low IBU, taste like caramel as hell.

I did 3 Irish red all grain after and I can't get to the level of caramel taste and smell.

I did:

Too dark and roasted for my taste.

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f65/iris...t-comp-141086/
Not enough caramel and red color.

And I did http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f65/scot...t-comp-141264/
That one was good, but not a red exactly or enough caramel.

Anyone as an other recipe or some advises to get to that great caramel taste?

I know which one you are talking about, and I would be more than happy to find a recipe similar to that one!
I'll keep an eye on this thread for sure.

I think I'm near.
I brewed this one with low IBU and it's almost that.
Color bitterness and taste are right on, smell I can't tell, the nose not working very well now.
I might actually add a recipe to HBT for the first time.

It's a test batch so adjust for a full 5 gal batch.
