Brian Boru Old Irish Red by Tree Floyds Brewing, Indiana, 5.90% ABV Gorgeous malt fruity nose. Quite a bit of hops with smoothness all the way through. Nuttiness on the middle Grapefruit on the End
Murphy’s Irish Stout, Ireland, 4.00% ABV
“An Irish Cloud in Your Mouth.” This is an Irish dry stout. Frothy head. They have been using the same recipe since 1856. Light milk chocolate and tiny hints of coffee
Smooth and soft in the mouth
Guinness Pub Draught, Dublin, Ireland, 4.20% ABV
Amazing head. Thicker and richer than Murphy’s with chocolate and coffee. The bite isn’t big. Some bitterness on the end.
Smithwick’s Irish Red Ale, Ireland 4.50% ABV
Butterscotch on the nose. Straight forward. Pleasant and flavorful. Smooth and creamy finish.
