COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This authentic amber Irish ale is slow brewed with a blend of three malted barleys and finished with four varieties of hops. Then we dry-hopped in the lager tank to add a spicy note to warm your winter evenings. Expect this beer to be a beautiful copper-red, with a fruity ale body and a spiced hop finish.

Light red color. Pretty strong fruity malty smell. Nice light crisp flavor. Great balance of malt and hops. Just a touch of fruityness. Very smooth and refreshing.

Sweet caramel notes. Hops are in the background and provide an outstanding balance. This ale would sing with almost comfort food and is a great seasonal offering.

Great copper pour. Light malty flavor on the front of the tongue. Not as flavorful as other New Glarus options, but good & easy to drink.

A solid offering from NG again. Although probably my least favorite of all of their beers I have had. Bottle pours clear amber brown with medium white head. Taste very hoppy kind of overpowering.

Plain tasting ale with good balance and mouthfeel. More malt than hop. Good clear,crisp, amber color pour. This is a normal red ale with nothing special. I believe a better name should just be New Glarus Red Ale.

12/20/13 This is the least impressed I've ever been with a brew from these folks. It's not bad; just kind of blah. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is one of my least favorite New Glarus brews. To be fair, I just donít usually like Irish ambers in general, but NG has a habit of overdelivering and making me like styles I donít normally get into. This isnít bad, just a little sweet and boring.

Bottle, thanks Jim! Pours clear copper amber, small beige head, decent lacing. Aroma is caramel, toffee, light roast. Light plus sweet, little bitterness, perhaps a touch of hay. Medium body, a bit creamy.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a medium amber with minimal head. Aroma of mostly caramel with a slight hint of earthy hops. Taste is light bitter. Caramel with some spicy and earthy hops. Medium bodied with s slightly thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad.
