Like an Irishman on holidays in the Canaries, this beer has a red glow with a chilled out mellow feel. A traditional Irish style with a twist, the subtle caramel notes are balanced with a hoppy aroma.

Goes really well with roast pork, lamb burgers or a venison stew and don’t miss a chance to try it with a rich washed-rind cheese. But beware: keep out of direct sunlight.

Short description: traditional, with a twist – orange marmalade on toast – gentle bitterness

Style: Irish Red Ale

Malt: Irish pale malt, Cara, Munich

Hops: Nugget, Pacifica, Cascade

Strength: 5% ABV

Bitterness: 69 IBUs

Tasting notes: Colour/appearance: pours a rich red colour with a light tan head.

Aroma: burnt caramel notes and a hint of hoppy citrus.

Flavour: toasty caramel flavours are balanced with a soft hop bitterness. Think orange marmalade on toast.

Aftertaste: gentle bitter finish.

Food pairings: Serve with a cheese and charcuterie platter: there are enough hops here to stand up to sharp Hegarty’s cheddar cheese and cut through the richness of Gubbeen chorizo. Buttery, rich cheese, whether it has a bloomy rind – eg Cooleeney Farmhouse Cheese, Wicklow Baun – or a washed rind like Cais Rua work well here, the carbonation in the ale effectively cleaning the palate between each bite. Lamb – sweet and ever so slightly fatty – is also a good pairing. Match with a traditional Irish stew or make some lamb burgers, with lots of rosemary, and let the Sunburnt Irish Red shine through.
