Seems fitting for the St. Patty's Day celebrations. Enjoyable and certainly prefered to the green Natty Light that the bar was pushing. This beer proved to be a bit maltier and less hoppy than I remember, while contributing a peaty, earthy flavor and feel. Very mellow, smooth, and rich. Not bitey or grainy like a lot of the American Reds. Very European and pure brew.

Sampled back on 11/4/13. Chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler. Poured into a pilsner glass.

Murphy's Red Ale doesn't have listed the alcohol content. I am thinking in the 5.5% range. Pours a nice dark copper in color with a 1/2+ finger off-white head. Left lots of lacing with each sip. Perfect carbonation. The aroma is of malts with a hint of hops and caramel. The taste was actually better than the aroma and very easy taste on palate. One of the better red ales.

Apperance: nice copper color. Decent head and retention.
Smell: Malts come through somewhats. caramel malts on the nose. Slight hoppiness, not very distninguished, but pleasant never the less.
Taste:smooth. Malts are a little thing, but the hops have a nice kick. The brewmaster must be a hop head, because he puts a good amount in most of his beers. Because of this, it surprises me that there is no IPA on the menu, hopefully in the future.
Mouthfeel and drinkability: nice and even. Easy to drink. A sessionable ale.

A - Translucent light red.

S - Malty with a bit of caramel.

T - Sweet malt with some hop. Not enough going on for me in complexity and the flavours it's presenting.

M - Best part of beer. Crisp and smooth and refreshing.

O - Not great, not bad. I'll definitely look elsewhere for red ales.

Appearance is a nice deep dark caramel color. the smell is a very well balanced roasted smell to it. You can really smell the caramel malts in this one. The taste is a very dry and a hoppy bitterness with a grainy malt sweetness. the citrus hops really help the drinkability. The mouthfeel is a very carbonated lively feel. I do however like the balance of carbonation. all around a drinkable beer and would love to try it on tap
