Irish-Style Red AleBeer story
The New World Guide of Beer listed this as one of the best Irish style ales on the planet. Those three stars you see on the label aren’t just some fanciful design element. Early in its life, McNally’s Extra was awarded the highest award of one of Europe’s highest brewing authorities. Three golden stars denoting European Standards of Excellence.
World beer expert Michael Jackson ranks McNally’s as one of his all-time favourite beers. He calls it “as proud an Irish Ale as can be found anywhere”.
This brew has a high malt load to get the high alcohol level – it uses double the malt compared to Traditional Ale or another one of our 5% pure malt beers.
With a copper colour, you will experience toffee, caramel and subtle notes of fruit with a full-bodied, medium carbonation mouthfeel.
This beer is one of my favourites. There is a reason why this beer gets worldwide recognition.
