Red my eyes see
I finally had an opportunity to try the Irish Red Ale again. The color has deepened toward red a bit and it is still hoppy on the nose and tongue. The finish is nice and smooth. The head is quite thick and stays for the entire drink. As it warms, the maltiness comes up a bit, but the hops are still stronger. A very nice ale, I must say. Only minor changes will be needed in the next run. I'll start by cutting the dextrine in half. This will be a fun one to develop. The Cluster Fuggles ale is up next.
