Notes/Commercial Description:
A slightly caramel, medium bodied smooth Irish Red Ale. Rich, creamy and mellow. A VPB favorite for 23 years! Designed to be a session ale at 4.2% ABV. Very lightly hopped to enhance the appeal for the masses. A true crowd pleaser. We have proudly served over a half million pints of this popular ale to our loyal customers!

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a nut brown coloring with a filmy white head that sits a solid half an inch. Nose of nut, toffee, and roast characteristics. Flavors of roasted nut, cream, peat, and earth. Clean and smooth aftertaste is nutty sweet, with good roast to balance everything. Smooth, clean finish. Tasty beer, more of a brown than red, IMO.

Serving type: on-tap
