Introduction
A huge part of Irish tradition, the delicious stouts, ales and lagers of Ireland have become staple items at most St. Patrick’s Day celebrations around the world. With flavorful beers from brands like Harp, Murphy’s, Guinness, there’s a notable Irish brew for all types of beer lovers. Stout brewed by Guinness (and the smaller brewers Murphy’s and Beamish) once dominated domestic beer consumption in Ireland, with lager and ale having much smaller shares. Lager has subsequently become Ireland’s favorite beer style.
Guinness Irish Stout – Guinness is an Irish dry stout that originated in the brewery of Arthur Guinness at St. James’s Gate, Dublin since 1725. Guinness is one of the most successful beer brands worldwide. Guinness Irish Stout developed in 1959, this beer was the brewers’ celebration of Arthur Guinness signing his 9,000-year lease – a fitting way to mark 200 years of groundbreaking brewing. With a skillful pairing of nitrogen gas and carbon dioxide, the smooth, velvety texture was born. Distinguished by its legendary stormy surge upon pouring, Guinness Draught brewed up a storm all of its own. It established itself as the top-selling Guinness beer with lightning speed. This Irish Stout has appearance of distinctively dark, with a rich creamy head. Aroma of Sweet smelling with a coffee and malty nose. Flavor of Perfect balance of bitter and sweet with malt and roast characters. Palate of Smooth, creamy and balanced.
Guinness Blonde American Lager – Irish tradition meets American spirit in Guinness Blonde American lager. Ireland and America go way back. The first fusion beer in the Guinness Discovery Series, Guinness Blonde combines the best European brewing techniques – as well as the famous strain of Guinness yeast – with the finest American hops and malts. A collaboration between the Guinness brewers in Dublin and their counterparts at the Latrobe Brewery in Pennsylvania, the result is an American pale lager akin to that of the 1930s: a crisp, light beer that’s big on flavor. This Blonde American Lager has aroma of light and hoppy with floral and citrus notes. A complex and flavorful lager, hoppy and citrusy on the nose. Lively mouthfeel, crisp and refreshing with a long malt biscuit finish.
Smithwick’s Irish Ale – The Smithwick’s company began over 300 years ago. They boast the title of The Irish Red Ale. Being the longest established brewer and the oldest working brewery in Ireland it’s easy to see why this beer is so popular. This is some of the best of the big industrial beers. Smithwick’s Irish Ale has color of beautiful amber-red. Very clear. Head was big and puffy and receded to a fine lacing. Floral aromas from the hops along with a nice mix of malts and dark fruits. Some graininess in the finish. A malty sweetness covers the mouth and is beautifully balanced with a hop bitterness. Very slight coffee/smokiness from the roasted barley. Finish is little bitter and very clean. Very smooth beer.
Harp Lager – Harp Lager is an Irish lager created in 1960 by Guinness as an answer to the rising thirst for lagers in Ireland and the UK. Originally brewed as a “continental” lager with all Irish ingredients. It is a leading lager brand in Ireland, and is also popular in Canada, Africa and the United States. This second-most-recognizable Irish brand is co-marketed in the US with Guinness. Harp Lager appears golden and brilliantly clear. Taste of dry, malty front slowly gives way to a crisp and dry hoppy finish with notes of green apple and pear. Harp Lager’s pale malt flavor compliments fruits, while its dry, crisp hops accentuate spicy flavor.
Murphy’s Irish Red Beer – Murphy’s Brewery was a brewery founded in Cork, Ireland in 1856 by James Jeremiah Murphy (James J. Murphy). It was known as Lady’s Well Brewery until it was purchased by Heineken International in 1983, when the name changed to Murphy Brewery Ireland Ltd. Irish red ales get their reddish hue from the small amounts of roasted barley they contain. Murphy’s Irish Red Ale pours a very clear amber-reddish color with a substantial white frothy head, tastes very carbonated and looks great in the glass. Its aroma is subtle and smells of fresh bread and sweet malt. The body is velvety smooth. The beer finishes nicely and surprisingly complex with a subtle sweet candy-like flavor, along with a hint of roasted malt and a slight bitterness.
Killian’s Irish Red Lager – George Killian’s Irish Red is an example of an authentic, all-natural Irish-style red ale. Experienced brewers create Irish Red’s rich red hue and extra flavor by slowly roasting barley at a high temperature into perfectly caramelized malt. George Killian’s Irish Red was originally brewed in 1864 and brought to America by Miller Brewing Company in 1981. Reddish-orange / amber in color (crystal clear), with a thick, creamy head, plenty of malt flavor and a smooth finish, Killian’s Irish Red has the full flavor to stand alone or can be paired with practically any meal.
Wexford Irish Crème Ale – Wexford Irish Cream Ale is based on a traditional Irish recipe from Wexford, Ireland which dates back to 1810. Wexford uses only the finest ingredients to ensure a smooth mellow creaminess. This beer pours out a clear, amber color with a white/off-white, thick, lasting, meringue-like head. The aroma is sweet, pale malt with a slight toasty note, minor fruit esters, and corn aromas. The flavor is sweet and leans toward the malt side exhibiting both corn and caramel flavors with a slight tartness in the finish. There’s not much hop flavor but there is a medium-low hop bitterness that lasts into the finish.
