Murphy's Red Ale
Yet another beer in the mixed case that I got was Murphy's Red Ale (Yes, they make more than the Stout). The beer pours a golden color with a lofty foamy white head. The aroma consists of sour hops and sweet malts. The taste is malty and sweet and heavy on the biscuit flavors. It also has a sour hop bite and finishes a little dry with hops. The is no alcohol content posted, but I would guess around 5.0% ABV. I thought this was a rather pedestrian beer, but it was not terrible.
