3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Whilist I roamed the streets of jersey looking for cheep ale, close friend and comrade McLats and myself picked up a six pack at Wilco’s. It was to be Murphy’s Irish red which proved to be soothing to the palate. As it turns out it was a delicious blend of finely placed hops that was not abusive to my sense of taste and smell. Sidebar, vision remained and so did touch and hearing ability. Pick up a six pack sometime and attempt to embrace Irelands green pastures and delicious sounds of the chieftons. Caps off and cheers to Murphy’s Irish Red, for you surely are a king in a peasant’s world!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma: Lean caramel with moderate sweetness; light old tobacco leaf. Appearance: Rusty red, lightly carbonated pour with a fizzy tan head that quickly fades into a barely patchy skin. Flavor: Slightly bready caramel that develops a touch of wood; the finish dries out well enough and leaves a woody tang. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: Didn’t do much for me; if I wanted a cheap mass produced Irish Red at the local faux Irish pub, I’m still reaching for a Smithwicks.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Low carbonation but pours with a decent white head on a reddish body. Decent platable Irish red, without being anything extraordinary. Some caramel, a little citrus, with a balance of sweetness and some bitterness in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice clear red color. The beer has a thin layer of white foam. It looks nice. The smell is simple. It has some metal and a regular beer scent with a little fruity sweetness on top. The beer has a nice bitterness. It has some nice almond aromas. The beer develops in taste the more sips you take. At first it is quite regular, but after a wile you discover rich beer. There is also a little citrus in the taste.
