6 Incredible Red Ales

Image may contain: drink and text

Red Ale is wonderful, tasty and underrated. Not everyone can understand the flavour and depth of a good red ale. Those who do appreciate a good red ale know how dynamic it can be in terms of flavour. The reddish hue generally comes from a small amount of roasted barley. Many Red Ales are medium bodied, smooth with a caramel malt flavour and moderate carbonation.

Craft beer experts in Molloys, had to whittle their favourite red ales down to a super 6. These 6 red ales were then entered into the Molloys Craft Beer Awards. All of them are unique in their own way, and they should all be tried!
