Bright copper color. Curious, earthy aromas of toasted bread with goat butter, ham and beans, and hint of hamster cage with a supple, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and a stimulating, medium-length nutskin, cocoa-dusted wheat things, endive, and roasted root vegetables finish. A rustic, earthy Irish ale for the table.

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.
