COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Celtic brewers used caramel malts and roasted barley to impart a deep red color and rich malty flavour to their ales. Starting with this historical style, we worked for over two years developing and perfecting our 21st Century version. After countless tastings and adjustments, we arrived at O’Dempsey’s Big Red. It’s Big. It’s Red. An Irish-Style Red Ale with a North American attitude. All the body you want with just the right amount of hoppy goodness. Enjoy.

Draft pint at the Prado brewpub. Very dark red with a head that’s a bit watery. This packs a nice aroma of roasted malt and the first taste follows suit. Sweet and malty, his has a solid caramel character. Bit thin. (#3722, 10/26/2009)

Cybercat (2985) - Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2009 Pours a deep, barely translucent reddish sable with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled light tan head. Aroma is strong, spicy and surprisingly hoppy. Flavor is quite hoppy with strong tones of cloves and cinnamon and a hint of honey sweetness. Texture is sassy, fizzy and lively.
