Irish Red Ale

A bit sweet, with a lightly hopped tea-like flavor, and an even dextrinous body, Irish Red Ales are easy to please. Look for well-rounded and blanced flavors, and a pleasant toasted malt character in many examples. A drying finish is common.

Average alcohol by volume (abv) range: 4.0-6.0%   [ ? ]
