BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Coastal Extreme Brewing Co.

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!

12oz bottle stating freshest before Aug. from AC. Brown/red color and roasty nose. Roasted malt (caramel) predominates with a touch of coffee and a little hoppy bitterness on the finish. An enjoyable beer but not our favorite style.

Appearance - The beer pours a dark mahogany color with a small white head. The head fades fast leaving just a trace of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell - The smell is very light with just some hints of roast and caramel.
Taste- The taste begins with a somewhat bready and roasty flavor with a rather dry character. The dryness persists and is joined by a bit of earthy and herbal hops to leave one with a dryer lightly roasted taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel - The body of the beer is slightly on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is moderate. Overall for the moderate abv and dry but roasty taste of the brew it is rather well done.
Overall - This brew is actually rather nice and easy drinking. The the dry and roast with the moderating body make it somewhat crisp and clean tasting.

Spring pours a red color, with not much head. Smoky malty aroma, with hints of tobacco. Flavor is smooth and easy, nice bitter and malty creaminess. Good body and feel. Overall, its a very smooth red ale, and more on the bitter side.

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.
