Long Ireland’s first release. This beer is old world Irish ale; this isn’t designed to be an Irish Red. It’s brewed with ingredients based on how beer was brewed a few hundred years ago in Ireland. Since Ireland is an island, ingredients weren’t always readily available. The Irish brewers used ingredients that they were able to get locally. This beer is made with 4 different malts and a big serving of honey and oats that give it a sweet but smooth flavor. Its 5% a.b.v. And 20 I.b.u.’s.

Formerly at 6.4% and brewed at New England until the opening of their own plant.

italarican (1543) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Tap at the 2010 LIC Craft Beer Festival. Copper pour with standard white head. Faint aroma with notes of some grain and malt; I think this was served too cold. Flavor of grains, honey, and a touch of styrofoam. The honey gives it a slight stickiness in the finish, which is the best part of the beer. Crisp and tingly on the palate.
