Dark copper color. Attractive, fruity aromas and flavors of chocolate muffin and nuts, grilled baguette, and figs with a supple, lively, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, subtle, long finish with accents of spiced citrus, salty roasted nuts, and pepper finish. A superb, toasty and delicious Irish ale that is a pleasure to drink.

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.
