COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
McGrath’s Irish Red is named in honour of the ’Mighty’ Master McGrath, the greatest greyhound to have ever raced and who won the hare coursing Waterloo Cup 3 times in 1868, 1869 and 1871. Owned by the 2nd Baron, Lord Lurgan of Lurgan, Co Armagh Master McGrath became the town’s most famous sporting hero being renowned both nationally and internationally. During his racing career he was defeated only once in 37 course meetings. A medium bodied traditional ale, combining the caramel sweetness of the malts with toasted biscuit notes, balanced carefully by the earthy hops, finishing slightly dry but smooth on the palate. To be savoured on its own is a must...however it can equally be enjoyed when paired with meat or game dishes.

ATP (408) - POLAND - DEC 7, 2016
W aromacie znacznie bardziej chmielone od poprzednika i mniej karmelowe. W smaku puste, sporo takiej wytrawnej jakby karmelowosci, ledwie wyczuwalne toffi i biszkopty. Dopiero finisz jest wyraźnie palono-kawowy.
