Red Ale - Irish

The Irish Red Ale, or simply Irish Ale, is an medium amber to medium reddish-copper colored ale, often with subtle flavors. Slightly malty in the balance sometimes with an initial soft toffee/caramel sweetness, relatively low in hops and a touch of roasted dryness in the finish. American versions are often more alcoholic versions of the Irish traditional Export examples. A less-bitter and hoppy Irish equivalent to an English Bitter, with a dryish finish due to roasted barley. More attenuated with less caramel flavor and body than equivalent-strength Scottish ales.
