Red Nun Red Ale

Red Nun Red Ale Wine Details

Description: Named after the nautical term for the red buoy that helps guide ships back to port, the Red Nun Red Ale is our interpretation of an Irish Red Ale. It has a robust malt backbone with a kiss of hops to create balance within the profile. "Red. Right. Return to local beer" ~ 5.5% ABV 35 IBUs

Varietal Definition
Irish Style Ale:
rish ales are characterized by their reddish color, malt accents, slightly sweet palate, and low hopping. They are not generally bitter if true to style and in this they reflect the historical fact that the Irish have never taken to huge amounts of hops in their traditional beers.
