This was a very good Irish Red. It lasted to the end of a work Bar-B-Q event and was a big hit, very smooth, malty and nice flavor. The brew will become one of my annual mixes of favorite brews. Everyone like it, but more important I liked it. Thanks

Came out very nice. Pretty close. Nice deep color, thick off white head that dissappears slowly. Will brew it again, Thanks
