A - Translucent light red.

S - Malty with a bit of caramel.

T - Sweet malt with some hop. Not enough going on for me in complexity and the flavours it's presenting.

M - Best part of beer. Crisp and smooth and refreshing.

O - Not great, not bad. I'll definitely look elsewhere for red ales.

Sampled back on 11/4/13. Chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler. Poured into a pilsner glass.

Murphy's Red Ale doesn't have listed the alcohol content. I am thinking in the 5.5% range. Pours a nice dark copper in color with a 1/2+ finger off-white head. Left lots of lacing with each sip. Perfect carbonation. The aroma is of malts with a hint of hops and caramel. The taste was actually better than the aroma and very easy taste on palate. One of the better red ales.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint.

Not as red as I would expect a red ale to be, but not bad, more of a copper or bronze or pecan red. Slight head that dissipates. The taste is everything I would expect from a red ale. The mouth feel is perfect, not to heavy but not too light. The hops are present but not discernible. Nice malt to hop ratio seems to fit the red style nicely. It tastes and feels like a red more so than it looks like a red. I guess taste is all that really matters in the end.

I would definitely buy this again.

Appearance is a nice deep dark caramel color. the smell is a very well balanced roasted smell to it. You can really smell the caramel malts in this one. The taste is a very dry and a hoppy bitterness with a grainy malt sweetness. the citrus hops really help the drinkability. The mouthfeel is a very carbonated lively feel. I do however like the balance of carbonation. all around a drinkable beer and would love to try it on tap
