A true Irish style ale, this brew is distinctive for its deep red color, caramel finish and smooth flavor. Pale and caramel malts balance the bitterness and earthy notes of east Kent Goldings hops. This rich and creamy and malty ale originated in Ireland in 1710. It has a deep red color and distinctive caramel flavor from its pale and caramel malts. The malt sweetness is balanced by the earthy notes of east Kent Goldings hops. Cheers! - Jim Koch. Color: Deep red. Product of the USA.
