This is my take on the Thomas Hooker Irish Red Ale.

http://www.hookerbeer.com/beers/#irish-red

Irish Red

Style: Red Ale

ABV: 5.3%

Thomas Hooker's traditional Irish-Style Red Ale gets its warm, ruby color from an interesting blend of pale, caramel and roasted malts which promote a sweetness that's balanced with crisp, authentic, English-style hops. A very unique and drinkable red ale that's also favored by amber lovers.
Hooker Irish Red is drinks well year-round, not just on St. Paddy's day. CHEERS!

Availability: Year Round

Malts: Canadian 2-Row, Caramel 40L, Carapils, Munich 10L, Wheat Malt, Chocolate, Melanoidian

Hops: Bittering (East Kent Golding), Flavor (East Kent Golding, Fuggles), Aroma (East Kent Golding, Fuggles)

Original Gravity: 1.053

Finishing Gravity: 1.012

IBU's: 21

The local pub I frequent at lunch will have this from time to time in bottles. It is a nice, mild Irish red. Very easy to drink. They are nice enough to provide a fairly detailed outline of ingredients on their site so I figured I would give it a shot.

I usually use Munton's Kreamyx to carbonate my beer. Do you have any idea how much I should use to properly carbonate this in the style or an Irish Red Ale?
