Paddy's Irish Red

Another entry from Oakville, Ontario's Trafalgar Ales & Meads, Paddy's Irish Red is a golden coloured ale with a reddish hue.  It's slightly hazy and topped with an off-white head. Paddy's is sold in 473mL cans and contains 5% alcohol. The can declares "We only sell what we can't drink ourselves!"  That's the kind of brewer I know I'd be, which is why I stick to critiquing.

This brew has a grainy, toasted aroma. The flavour is also pretty toasty, moves malty to bitter, and is pretty delicious. It's not super hoppy at any stage of the game, but isn't timid either.

Paddy's Irish Red is quite a nicely balanced ale that is very drinkable and well constructed. If you find a can, buy it. You're gonna want to give it a try.

Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
