Named for our #1 Beer Man, Nick Murphy, this deep malty Irish amber ale is relaxed and easy going. A change of pace from our usual hop bombs, this beer is sure to put a smile on the face of any Irishman! Who needs a pot o’ gold when you got yerself a pint o’ red?

A - Dark orange-red color. Medium sized, creamy, smooth, frothy, slightly off-white head. Average retention leaving a small amount of lacing.

S - Toffee and caramel aplenty as you would expect. Some sweet bread and hints of light brown sugar. Slightly roasted malt aroma. A touch of earthy and floral hops.

T - Pretty sweet with loads of toffee and a good amount of caramel. Touches of nutty and earthiness with a roasted malt finish. Brown sugar and some dark fruit aspects. Sweet, toasted bready malt. Sweet but not cloying.

M - Medium body with average carbonation. Pretty smooth and creamy. Slightly dry finish.

D - Pretty easy to drink and while it is sweet, it is far from cloying. Tasty and easy to put down. Plenty of malt but it has a nice hoppy touch.

Notes: Nice Irish Red. Not my favorite from TG (can't match their IPAs or Stouts) but it is a nice change, and for a smaller brewery it is good for a deviation from their niche. Plenty of malt and a nice sweetness but not cloying. Overall it is nice but not something I'll crave.
