Availability: In Stock
St. Paddy's Day is right around the corner and Soundgrowler is turning out a special brew just for the holiday! O'larry's Irish Red features complex caramel and toffee tones with a biscuity backbone and a mild bitterness for balance. This deep red brew boast a frothy tan head, and is amazingly easy drinking despite being full flavored. Slainte!
Moderate to very little caramel malt flavor and sweetness, rarely with a light buttered toast or toffee-like quality. The palate often is fairly neutral and grainy, or can take on a lightly toasty or biscuity note as it finishes with a light taste of roasted grain, which lends a characteristic dryness to the finish. A light earthy or floral hop flavor is optional. Medium to medium-low hop bitterness. Medium-dry to dry finish. Clean and smooth. Little to no esters. The balance tends to be slightly towards the malt, although light use of roasted grains may increase the perception of bitterness slightly.
