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!

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.

Yet another example of why Irish beer is so amazing. This one is very high in my all-time top list of beers.

Tap @ RVC. Dark caramel with a hint of red thin head decent lacing. Smells bready with a hint of citrus. Tastes like a tiny bit hoppier Yuengling.

Clasica cerveza irlandesa. Mejor de barril que de botella. Suave al paladar no muy amarga. Deja buen sabor de boca

ferrinche (24) - Santiago de Compostela, SPAIN - FEB 22, 2015
Clásico sabor tostado de cerveza irlandesa, al que le guste este tipo de cerveza lo encontrará como una buena opción, ya que tiene una alta disponibilidad. No la he encontrado todavía de barril, que supongo que se notará positivamente la diferencia en el sabor.

Copper reddish colour with a medium off-white head. Caramel, malts and herbal aroma. Taste is sweet at front with more bitterness towards the finish. Overall, drinkable but not remarkable.
