BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Roy Pitz Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States

Style: Irish Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This Scottish Style Ale is brewed with 11 different malts including a healthy addition of Toasted Rye, a Smoked Irish Bog malt, and a Scottish Peated malt. Balanced by a noble German bittering hop and the addition of West coast citrus hops for flavor and aroma. The fruity note's and earthy ester's from the ale yeast create a nice contrast between the bitter hops and the sweet maltiness of this brew. Great Balance, Great Complexity, Great Drinkability.

Served on tap at Roy Pitz Brewing Company. I liked the idea of this Irish Red more than the actual execution of the product. It had a nice, rustic red look and the aroma and taste were certainly adequate for an Irish Red, but the mouthfeel was a little oily on the tongue. I wouldn't turn one down, but there are better choices at Roy Pitz.

Appeared as a typical dark reddish brown color with a thin white head. Smells of citrus and bitter aromas. Taste was relatively balanced between bitter and malt taste with an after taste of weak citrus. Unfortunately, these tastes diminished the overall flavor because the individual tastes were better than the final combination. Felt smooth and a bit flat for the Irish Red Style.
