The classic Irish Red Ale is a subgenre of Pale Ale and takes its name from its wonderful chestnut red color. It is impossible to say with certainty who invented this style, but it is believed that it has existed for more than seven centuries. Various special malts are responsible for the strong red: Traditionally, roasted malts and kilned malts are used, which look beautiful in the end product and provide a strong aroma with notes of caramel, fruit and bread.
Nowadays, this style of Irish beer is no longer just brewed in Great Britain. A successful variant, for example, comes from the pen of Ale-Mania. The people of Bonn have dared to create a modern interpretation and refined their red ale with a load of American hops. The varieties Columbus, Cascade and Centennial contribute fruity notes that go perfectly with the diverse malt.
Their Hoppy Red Ale flows into the glass in an opaque copper tone and is crowned with a fluffy head of ivory-colored foam. The scent and taste present us with a bouquet of roasted malt, creamy toffee, roasted nuts, oven-fresh bread and homemade orange jam. The hops complement the aromatic play with spicy pine notes, floral hints, forest herbs and a bitterness that is perfectly matched to the soft sweetness.
A drinkable classic with a skilful hop kick and a complex character.
