First comment: In the interest of full disclosure and props to my LHBS, this is a rye-ified version of Dan Small's (Dan's Homebrewing in Vancouver, Canada) delicious Irish Red recipe.

Rationale: I call this Early Riser since, as a teacher, I have to be up early and be clear-headed to do my job. The days of going to work hungover are long, long gone and a tasty, low gravity ale is exactly what is needed for weekday night quaffing. A few half pints on a school night makes for a great wind-down and an easy morning the next day.

Tasting notes: Smooth, malty flavour with a touch of spiciness and fruit. Malt comes through very well along with the hops - nice bitterness with some present hop flavour and aroma on the nose. Hoppier than a traditional IRA. A nicely balanced pint. The key aspect of this ale is the full-bodiedness from such a low-gravity beer. Certainly a session beer, that's anything but thin, boring and rough around the edges. Quickly becoming my house beer.

Awesome! I've been looking for a nice session ale for the same reasons as you (early riser, also teach-sorta). I've doing pales and a ginger honey but this Red sounds like a nice change.

Props to Dan as well- R.I.P.
