This ruddy brew with a white, bubbly head hails from a family-run brewery in Carlow, Ireland. It’s true to the style from nose to finish, presenting a simple, clean profile. The sweet aroma arrives in gentle toasted malt and toffee wafts. Similar toffee sweetness plays out on the tongue, though it’s textured with a grainy, biscuity character that adds another dimension. Spritzy and medium-light bodied, it’s easy on the palate and culminates in a dry, roasted finish.
