Pale brilliant golden amber color. Bright, green, toasty aromas of sweet bibb lettuce and meyer lemon curd on toast with an even, bright, spritzy, off-dry light-to-medium body and a smooth, interesting, quick radish sprouts, butter roasted nuts, and hint of water chestnut finish. A smooth and easy, lager-like Irish ale that is super crushable.

Irish ales are reddish in color and range from 4.5-6.5% in alcohol. They feature rich malt accents, a slightly sweet palate and low hop bitterness. In addition to Irish style stouts, these beers represent a large portion of the Irish market and are easily recognized by their appearance and high drinkability. Noteworthy examples of this style include: O’Hara’s Irish Style Red Ale, Samuel Adams Irish Red and Great Lakes Conway’s Irish Ale.
