Brilliant dark copper color. Aromas and flavors of buttered toasted fruit pastry, roasted nuts, and carrot cake with a supple, bright, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, breezy finish with accents of light sprouts and greens, sliced potato, and dried stone fruit finish. A round, easy-drinking red ale.

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.
