Style: Irish Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
Although there are a lot of “Irish red” beers out there, only a few of them feature the slightly roasted flavor that made this style legendary. Not surprisingly, this flavor comes from the addition of a small amount of roasted malt, the same thing that gives the beer its deep ruby hue. Ours also uses hops from the United Kingdom to lend even more Irish authenticity to the style. It is the perfect brew to enjoy while watching St. Patrick’s Day parades from Boston to New Haven and beyond!

Poured from a bottle into pint glass in April 2015.

Appearance: Dark red with nice tan head.

Smell: Pleasant, and can definitely smell the added hops. There is some roasted malt aroma, but it is dominated by the hops.

Taste: Interesting taste. There is a strong hop flavor with some sweet malt flavor. But the flavor is dominated by the hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium to thin bodied.

This is an interesting irish ale. It has more hops than others I have tried. It is thinner than expected, but the flavor is not overpowered by the alcohol.

Reddish copper in color. The nose is really nice and nutty. The flavor is less bold than the nose might indicate. The dry finish is the highlight of this offering.
