A traditional light hop flavour balances the sweet malty caramel taste. The addition of a pinch of roast barley during the brewing process lends a distinctive roast bite which is balanced by a crisp dry medium bitterness.

O’Hara’s Irish Red has a very thin, off-white head, a brilliant brick-red appearance, lots of bubble streams, and a little bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of medium-roasted barley malt, molasses, brown bread crust, and candied fruit. Taste is of tannin, bread crust, and mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and O’Hara’s Irish Red finishes crisp, dry, refreshing, and easy drinking. Overall, this is a simple, yet good beer. RJT

Jultsu (580) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - APR 29, 2016
BBE 28.04.16. Tumman mustanpunertava, nopeasti katoava vaahto. Maan multainen suklainen tunkkainen tuoksu. Suutuntuma laimeaa suklaata, espressoa, palaneisuutta, vetinen alapää. Kokonaisuus ihan kiva.
