COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoggetowne Irish Red is a traditional Irish Ale brewed with the finest English malts and hops. This beer was developed through a collaboration with the Hogtown Brewers - Gainesville’s American Homebrewers Association recognized homebrew club. The Hogtown Brewers serve the Irish Red along with other Swamp Head beers at the Hoggetowne Medieval Faire, a Renaissance Faire held each year during the last weekend in January and first weekend in February. Thanks to the outstanding reception of Hoggetowne Irish Red, it is now served by better craft beer bars and restaurants through St. Patrick’s day. Hoggetowne Irish Red has a medium light body, with moderate malt aroma and 6.5% alcohol by volume. It is deep amber in color due to the use of roasted barley; it features low hop aroma, with almost no hop flavor. Hoggetowne Irish Red is an easy drinking ale with a clean caramel malt flavor and a hint of roasted grain.

Au fût @ OTH. De couleur cuivre, mousse blanche. Malt caramel, note grillée avec qcq fruits. Au palais, on ressent une fine amertume tout en gardant une bonne présence, quoique légère du mat et caramel, en arrière-goût, un peu de sucre brun et malt grillé. Reste effervescente et devient plus appréciable une fois que elle se réchauffe un peu. Au fini, le profile du malt présente un léger aspect de noisette tout en conservant une amertume de malt pale.
