look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a light brown with red hues, a one inch white head that left some lacing. Smells of malts, caramel and bread. Taste follows the nose with additional notes of toffee and balancing earthy hops. Far less sweet than other mass produced red ales. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, smooth mouth feel.

Murphy's Irish Red Ale on tap, 5% ABV. Pours brown or real dark red, with a nice two finger beige foamy head. Nose is malty and grainy, taste follows with roast malt, some sweetness, and moderate bitterness. Excellent mouthfeel, overall excellent.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear brown color with a large off-white colored head. The aroma is malt. the taste matches the nose. A very basic beer.

Served from 12 oz bottle into schooner glass.
Pours a thick, foamy cream colored head that falls slowly with plenty of lacing on the glass. Color is clear amber with abundant carbonation streams. Aroma of rich bread dough, caramel, earthy hops. Mouthfeel is medium with a slightly wet finish. Flavor is abundant with molasses, toasted malt with some char, caramel, raisin, well balanced with earthy hops. Really enjoyed this one and would buy again.
