Murphy’s Law #1-An Irishman is the only person who will step over the bodies of a dozen naked women to get to Murph’s Irish Red! Yes it really is that good! Deep amber color with a malty entry and a baby butt smooth finish makes this one of the best beers Toppling Goliath makes. Discover how an Irish Amber beer should taste and feel like you have found a four leaf clover!

Growler from the TG tap room poured a dark reddish amber with a thin head. Aromas of malt, slight fruitiness, caramel, and bread. Medium bodied with a hint of sweet. Very drinkable.

Marheb (2785) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Caramel brûlé, agrumes, chocolat et une amertume progressive. La signature végétale est particulièrement alléchante et combiné à la maltitude, c’est un minerai de buvabilité.

Draft at TG. Clear copper pour; cherry cola and caramel. Sweet, light body, short lightly bitter finish. Easy drinking beer.

DrSilverworm (7800) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2014
On tap at Dexter’s Pub in Madison, on GTMW eve. Mostly clear dark red color. Good thin off-white / khaki head. Leaves good bits of lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Light slick texture. Some caramel malt. Dark fruit, earthy hoppy character. Light to moderate bitter taste, moderate sweet. Some nutty, chocolate notes in the finish. Pretty solid Irish red ale.

Very malty. Actually more dark sweet malt than Irish red. Kinda reminded me more if Robert the Bruce. Pretty solid stuff

CanIHave4Beers (3500) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Pours a dark amber color with a small head that leaves some lacing on the glass.

Aroma has some toasted caramel & light chocolate maltiness, fairly clean, fairly faint, fine enough.

The flavor has a pretty rich and well rounded maltiness, most defiantly some chocolate & dark caramel malt are there. It’s got a light touch of leafy happiness... some earthy tones. The beer is a touch sweet, but not cloying at all.

AWISLguy (1573) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 27, 2014
At the source, in a sampler shared with the just-21 year old. Pours ruby colored with no head. Aroma has bread and nuts and light stone fruits. Tastes follows, more fruity than the aroma. Medium bodied but light in taste and presentation. Finishes sweetly. Inoffensive, but likely not in the top 10 of their 15 taps. Shrug?

Draft pour at the source. Pours a clear dark amber with a beige head of foam. The aroma is toasty and bready. Toasty taste and a little sweet. Light body and low carbonation.
