Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 06-10-2002

Although there are a lot of “Irish red” beers out there, only a few of them feature the slightly roasted flavor that made this style legendary. Not surprisingly, this flavor comes from the addition of a small amount of roasted malt, the same thing that gives the beer its deep ruby hue. Ours also uses hops from the United Kingdom to lend even more Irish authenticity to the style. It is the perfect brew to enjoy while watching St. Patrick’s Day parades from Boston to New Haven and beyond!

12 oz bottle. Pours copper with small, short-lived, fluffy white head. Aroma is of bread crust, herbal hops and some caramel. Body is medium and crisp. Herbal, earthy hop, bready malt and caramel combine on the palate. Finish is long, bitter, and astringent. I would not buy this brew again.

12 oz bottle – Exp Date April. Poured into glass. Head on the beer pours with a slightly tan hue. The color is a deep and dark red and clear. The aroma is mild, but roasted malt and herbal hop is present. The first taste is a balance between malt and hop with a significant roasted finish. The beer coats the palate but finishes quite dry. Certainly different than most red ales, but for an Irish Red seems appropriate.
