Irish Red Ale
The eponymous creation of our former Head Brewer, Paul Murphy, is a full-bodied ale whose ruby color and toasty sweetness result from the generous use of caramel malt, balanced by four hop additions, including a dry hopping in the conditioning tank.

Sampled at the Brewery, poured a clear copper color, with a creamy, fine, tightly-packed off-white head. No lacing to speak of, though.
Nose had a toasty quality to it, along with a generous amount of hopping. Pleasing to the olfactory system!
The body was medium, yet it had a slight carbonated roughness on the tongue.
The flavor started with more toasty, bready maltiness. Plenty of hops were present, though I could not pinpoint 1 particular style. Not citrusy, and neither really bitter, but with a bit of sharp, spiciness. Pleasant none-the-less, and a bit dry at the finish.
A very easily quaffable, middle of the road brew. Nothing outstanding, just a decent session brew. Prosit!!
