COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale pays homage to the Irish who settled on Kilgubbin, or Goose Island, in Chicago over a hundred years ago. In the Irish tradition, red ale gets its rich reddish color from roast barley and chocolate malts. Ours adds a subtle spicy finish from a touch of malted rye, to make Kilgubbin Red Ale perfect for St. Patty's or any special occasion

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Decent brew. Not as hoppy as most American reds, brewed more Irish. Nutty, malty, etc.

puggy211 (711) - cordova, Tennessee, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Starts with a very balanced feel between the fresh hops amber malt. Actually seems to be more of an amber in most categories other than appearance. This is balanced; however, this balance is perfected partially through means of low ingredient usage, meaning the beer is a touch weak, but nice.

Bottle. Pours deep amber with a thin crispy head. Smells malty sweet floral and some roasty smoke. Tastes malty sweet. Hints of roasted malts, smoke. Balanced by some hops and has an excellent finish. A very good example of its type. Drink slowly and enjoy.
