#43 NB Irish Ale

Happy Saint Patrick's DayLike Irish stouts, Irish ales are sociable session beers with a low alcohol content but substantial body. This beer pours with a deep red color and tan head over a caramel-like malt character with roasty and fruity notes. As a bow to Ireland's meadmaking past, honey lightens the body and boosts the gravity of this recipe, while a small dose of oats adds creaminess to the mouthfeel and a hint of grain to the flavor.
This was made from the Northern Brewer Irish Draught Ale

Similar to a Kilkenny/Smithwicks with a bit more flavor.
The first sip seems a little flacid but almost immediately the additional mouth feel provided by the oats and the back end sweetness of the honey settle in and 'ahs' ensue.
Malty sweet, with a hint of honey.
