Product Details
Like 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.

Perfect beer for on tap
Bought this kit a month after buying my kegerator thinking it would be a good beer on tap and boy was I right. Makes a real nice dark brown (darker than pictured) malty ale with a perfect layer of creamy head. Velvety mouthfeel that your friends will be obsessed with. I'd say this beer is a better, more flavorful version of Smithwicks. Highly highly suggest you try.

Good Draught Ale
Brewed this one and put it on draught. A great dark, malty, ale with thick head, great body and malty aroma. After a month of lagering in a keg, it became just awesome. Highly recommended.

Early taste
Brewing went flawlessly due to well written directions. Into primary two weeks. Then to secondary for four weeks. Bottle day was today and snuck a couple sips and am very pleased. Smooth, balanced flavors. Looking forward to the finished brew!

Favorite extract kit I've done so far. OG 1.045 FG 1.011. Used Windsor yeast fermented at 66-68. After two weeks primary and two weeks bottle tasted great. Would definitely brew again great sessionable beer to have around the house.

Great Stuff
First ever home brew, it came out pretty good, i was very impressed by how quickly everything came together, after 3 weeks of primary and 2 weeks of bottle conditioning. I would reccomend this to anyone

Excellent--5 pints
Had a few buddies over to sample it. Served it on draught with a "beer gas" mix. Very thin but persistent head. Could have probably kicked the gas level up a bit, but it reminded me of Ireland/UK served this way.I bought a 6 of smithwicks and several of us did a blind taste comparison. It was easy to pick this one out and it was preferred by all.Very easy to drink.

I think it's my favorite
I add an extra 1/2 lb of Carapils for more head on the beer. Between this and the Dry Irish Stout (add oats), these are my favorites. This is a crowd-pleaser among people who know beer.

Great session ale
I brew all grain and extract on occasion. Both methods work well for me - extract takes less time. This Irish Ale is an excellent session ale. Good for guys to come over and watch the Oregon Ducks football team and not get too buzzed. But, it is also satisfying and not too thin. Great addition to any stable of brewed beers to serve.

My friends favorite
I brewed several differ types and styles of beer over the last year and this is the one that all of my friends and family like the best. This is the second time brewing this one and I anticipate it tasting just as good as the last batch. This will definitely be one that I keep on hand. I always add more priming sugar so I get good carbonation.

What would the differences be between the Irish Red kit and this Irish Draught? Thanks for any insight.
A shopper on May 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I've not had the Irish Red but I don't think it comes with honey. The draft ale comes with a pound of honey which adds a flavor I would expect the red not to have. I legged the draft ale last week and am waiting for it to gain carbonation. I had some last night and it was pretty good in spite of being a little green (early).
