Label says brewed and canned by the Heineken Brewery.Hissed at me when I opened it.Poured nicely,head was an inch above the rim of the mug and took it's time settling.Aroma was weak with sulfur.Taste was more sulfur.Mouthfeel was watery and finish was dry,bitter and once again sulfur tasting.This may be a bad batch, but I think Killian's tastes better overall.I've only had Killian's on tap and this can could have kicked around a hot warehouse for awhile so my comparison my not be fair.I enjoy the Murphy's stout, so I'll have to try this on tap to be fair.

St Patrick's Day weekend, so I figured I'd try at least one Irish beer. I've obviously tried the obvious culprits - Guiness, Harp, Smithwick's, Murphy's Stout, etc. So I saw a 6'er of Murphy's Red Ale and decided to take it down while working outside. I figured if I had to listen to the people partying up at the bars, I may as well be drinking while cleaning up my yard right?
It's not a bad beer - the malts make it sweet and smooth to take down - although there's definately a metallic after-taste that almost gives off an alcohol taste. Which isn't horrible, but gives it a bit of a harshness to it. I wasn't expecting much, and Murphy's didn't give much. I wouldn't buy it again, but I suppose if you want to get into a St Patty's spirit once a year and you happen to buy this beer, it's definately drinkable.

Appearance -It is a dark amber / red color, with a thick head.
Smell - It is a sweet malts and a bit of hops.
Taste - It is a bit sweet from the malts, with the hops adding a nice spiciness to it.
Mouthfeel - It is a bit weak-bodied, good carbonation though.
Overall - It is an OK beer.
