COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique beer style may be one of Ireland’s best kept secrets. Toffee-like in aroma, malty in flavour and copper in colour, Irish Red finishes clean and smooth, with a hint of Northwest hops to help get your Craic on when you’re not in Ireland.

fiulijn (20491) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2011
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark amber color; creamy head. Light caramel aroma. Quite good caramel and roasted malt flavor, dry mouthfeel. Strong bitterness. Pleasant beer, although not complex.

Bottle, shared by Parksy. Red orange amber, orange tinted head. Aroma of caramel and fruity hops. Nicely hopped palate, tasty caramel malt base. A really nicely hoppy amber, very tasty.

reebtogi (6261) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 1, 2011
650mL bottle poured a deep amber color with modest off-white head and some spotted lacing. Aromas of caramel and hops. Taste is malty sweet with a moderate hoppy finish. A pretty decent red ale.

3.2
CapFlu (5127) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2013
(650 ml bottle) Purchased from Liquor Plus Douglas for $5.99. Pours a large almond coloured head atop a deep orange body. Good hop front and malt base. All round a pretty solid north american Irish Red. Good.

3.5
tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2011
Pleasantly balanced aroma of caramel malt and floral hops. Clear amber body is topped by a low white head that recedes to a thin partial cover with some lacing. Flavour is as aroma suggests with pleasant bitterness offsetting the caramel malt. Medium light body with moderate, lightly prickly carbonation. A very drinkable beer! Sampled on tap on St. Patrick’s day at Sunset Grill.

pintbypint (3631) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 5, 2013
650ml brown bottle. 5.6% abv on label. Orange red colour, small tan cap. Nose has some surprise pine hops, spicy and pleasant. Lots of malt in the mouth, toffee notes, grains, a bit of earth and some spicy hop. Slight bitterness and piney hop aftertaste. Medium bodied, average mouthfeel and carbonation. A nice brew, pretty simple but very drinkable.

3.4
northropfrye (3593) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 17, 2013
This was better than I thought. Reddish brown colour, white head. I was hit with a nice whiff of bitter hops. Malty bitter taste. Quite similar, in some ways, to an English Bitter. Granville Island needs to keep making beers like this. Enjoyable.
