2 oz Roasted Barley

Willamette Hops (4.5% AAU) 60 min boil

Mash @ 150F for 70min.

Taste notes: This is a spicy Irish red with a strong rye presence. There was a strong malt presence up front that quickly dissolved into a blend of hop bitterness and rye spice.

Appearance: Deep red color with a tan head.

This beer was very popular when I poured it for members of my brew club. Though I brewed it early in the year, I was drinking it during spring and early summer. I suspect I would enjoy this more in the winter, however.
"An Irishman is never drunk as long as he can hold on to a blade of grass, and keep from slipping off the face of the Earth."
