Church Street is proud to present our first seasonal brew for the early months of spring. This classic European brew uses 100% UK hops and malt, featuring Crystal and Vienna malts. Notes of caramel, toffee, and buttered toast provide for a smooth and complex flavor profile-topped with a creamy head.

Aroma is fruit/berries and mild sugar/sweetness. The flavor is strong fruit/berries, malts, mild sweetness and a dryish/slightly astringent finish.

Draft at OC. From notes. Moderately hoppy, good caramel backbone. Impressive.

Disclosure - not a huge red ale fan generally. This isnít bad but it isnít my thing...basic red ale malt flavor but something sweet in the finish, kind of like honey but a bit too tart. Not very full body, either.

Bottle. Looks like youíd expect from an Irish red ale, decent head and retention, downhill from there. Nose is grainy, palate is thin, malt and for some reason slight tartness (WTF?), getting a bit of cider vinegar in there. Iíd use the rest for battering perch or cod or whatever, but thatís about it.

Reddish brown color-head poured nice and moderately thick for a draft. Taste was overall pretty good and the finish was moderately hoppy/malty finish. Interesting and good.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2014
On draft at the brewery. Pours a nice reddish brown color with a tan, thick head. Aroma of toasted malt, some cereal malt, and hops. The hops manifest themselves in a earthy and herbal manner, though there is some fruity and floral notes as well. Flavor is mildly bitter with a strong sweetness. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, with a moderately bitter finish. This is well done, interesting.

tmoreau (4164) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Draft offering at the tap room bar in the brewery. Dispensed to a logoed pint glass with a ruby highlighted, dark brown color, light tan, frothy head foam, and wavy ribbons of lacing. The aroma was toasty & malty, almost melanoidiny, with caramel & toffee hints. Medium bodied, and lively carbonated, the flavor presented a noticeable hop bitterness that had a slightly abrasive, earthy, lingering quality to it. On the hefty side in IBUs, and quite dark for an Irish Red, (more Dunkel appearance) but tasty nonetheless.

Very basic and easy-drinking Irish ale. Reddish color, mild aroma, pleasant beer.
