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.
