Red ales are one of the most popular styles of beer among homebrewers, and our Irish Red Ale sings their praises. Customers love its rich, deep amber-red color (thanks to a little roasted barley) and balanced smooth taste. Originating in Ireland as the name says, this brew is malty and medium-bodied with a caramel-malty sweetness that has little to no hop aroma or flavor. This creates an Irish ale that is a smooth, easily enjoyed crowd-pleaser. You'll want to bust it out for parties and brew it over and over again!

Almost perfect Review by Greg

Tasted great, but I think it should have used amber malt extract instead of gold to accentuate the red color. I served it side by side with the liberty cream ale and you couldn't visually tell a difference.

Great! Review by blitzcraig

This, as many of you, was my first kit and experience with home brewing. Like many of you I was as nervous as could be! I don't have a wort chiller so I cooled it in my tub with cold ice water. I left it in single stage fermenter for 3 weeks. When I checked there was still some stuff floating so will recommended I stir it up and give it another week. That made a huge difference! I bottled about 2 weeks ago. My wife and I tried a 12oz one the other day and it was great! She said she even liked it more than Boulevard Wheat! Now I just have to wait patiently for my bigger bottles. Great brew!

Great kit to start on Review by Joe

Good kit with quality ingredients. This was my first homebrew kit, and I bought some extra hops to put in it as well. I received mine with muntons yeast and it worked very quickly. Only spent about a week and a half in the fermentor. I don't have a secondary so i probably bottled it way too soon but I had no change in my gravity reading in 4 days, so I went ahead and bottled it. It also carbonated pretty quickly and it currently sitting in my fridge aging. I'm hoping it gets a little better with time. Definitely drinkable and tasty and smells really good, but tastes a little green. Definitely a learning experience!

Fantastic! Review by brian

Like many others, this was my first kit and I was quite nervous that it wouldn't turn out during the entire process. I figured I'd screw something up from the get go. I didn't. It looks and tastes fantastic. Had a friend over last night and watched his eyes light up as he took his first drink and he said, "You really made this?!?!"

Just follow the instructions, don't be as nervous as I was and this Irish Red Ale will turn out excellently!

I'm going to try another kit and use the liquid yeast this time and see if it turns out even better!

This was my fist 5 gallon batch, but It has proved that brewing beer using extract can be easy and relaxing. Everything came packaged and labeled very well with clear and concise directions.

I bought the Irish red extract kit for my son in law and helped him brew it for Christmas. It was simple to brew and on Christmas day he got to open his first bottle of delicious home brew. My gift was a hit thanks to Midwest.

This was our first time brewing our own beer at home. We have previously done wine and hard cider, and our friends who brew beer recommended we start with an ale as they tend to be more forgiving with temperature changes while brewing.

We ordered this kit and two others to offset shipping. This is finally ready to drink and is wonderful! It isn't lasting long in our fridge, and today we are starting our second batch (Happy Holiday Ale). The directions were easy to read and everything came ready to put in. We will be buying this again!
