Default Irish Red

You would not believe how hard it is to find a traditional Irish Red that is not Killian's, Sam Adams, or Smithwicks. Tons of hoppy American versions, which I like, but nothing for me to try for research. Any suggestions?

I live in the Cleveland Ohio area and Great Lakes Brewery makes Conways Irish Ale which is close to Killians. I actually prefer it over Killians...

I think Killians is Coors with red food coloring.

If near Pensacola, drop by the Irish bar there (O'something, I forget) - they brew a great "Irish Red" there.

Really, what's the difference between an Irish red and a Vienna red?

thanks for the recipe. that's similar to jamil's in brewing classic styles, which is what i just bought ingredients for. his recipe doesn't have any late hops. how is the hop character in yours? i have an extra .75 ounce of goldings and was debating on whether or not to throw them in for flavor/aroma.
