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.

Not much aroma in a brown-colored ale with just a hint of a red tint. The flavor is a red cherry and sweet apples with lively carbonation.
