Bay Ale is a copper coloured, traditional ale with malt and hop aromas and a smooth and well-balanced flavour.
Hoppy, yet malt-forward this ale strikes a great balance. Using Northern Brewer, Bobek and Willamette hops alongside a strong malt backbone this beer is both for savoring and thirst-quenching, depending on your mood.
Speciality Malts - Brown, Crystal & Munich
Hops (33 IBU) - Northern Brewer, Bobek and Willamette(Note: Change of Hop from Perle to Northern Brewer)

RichardGretton (4788) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2017
Bottle. Amber beer with a strong head. The aroma is bitter with smoothness, and the flavour is bitter with hints of maltiness but good level of hops. Overall a nice smoothly bitter ale.

ZodiacM (1290) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2017
LCI. Uit de fles geschonken. Mwah, waterig bier, moutig met een wat metalige nasmaak. Irish Red is niet mijn favo bier voor thuis. In de kroeg smaakt ie prima wsl.

bierkoning (13695) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2017
Bottle. Dark amber color. Malt, caramel and floral notes and a hint of butter in the aroma and flavor. Sweetish. Friendly.

MonsterMagnet (1570) - NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2017
Bottle, pours a nice clear deep amber with an off white head. Malty with some hops, rather boring really.

tricksta_p (5167) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2017
Bottle from Speciaalbierpakket. Magnum and Williamette hops. Aroma is bready malt, caramel, some toffee with a slight hint of dried fruits. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Body is medium. A bit dull this one, mostly just crystal malts, not bad but it lacks character.

jamestulloch (4330) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 8, 2017
Bottle from Nina’s Mini Market. Clear ruby/amber body with tiny flecks floating beneath a medium off-white head. Lively fizz. Aroma of stewed apple, caramel, tea and wood. Flavour of toffee, woody malt and earth. Medium body with a smooth texture. Soft fizz. Sweet and very enjoyable - much better than previous reviews suggest, which admittedly are from over three years ago. This bottle was hopped with Magnum and Williamette.
