Hi all,

With my empties starting to pile up and a spare fermenter I'm looking at a new brew.

My lhbs just got in a new batch of ndbrewing fresh wort kits and I saw this "Celtic Red Ale - A malt driven full bodied beer, moderately hopped, with a brilliant rust red colour. "

If anyone has brewed one let me know.

Now my main question is what commercial beers are matches for this style as I haven't seen any and I want to try at least one before making a 20l brew I might not like. I have heard Kilkenny if someone can confirm that would be great any others would be great as well.

As always input is more than welcome

Harringtons do a Sassy Red too, which is a nice drop.
Its more balanced across the hops and malt - ie not mainly malt driven - but a very tasty beer.

I prefer "Old Speckled Hen" style recipes for my reds.

Bridge Road, Monteiths, 2 Birds, Prickly Moses, and Ranga off the top of my head. All different, but all "red" ales.

Macs do Sassy Red, thats quite a nice drop. I think it's actually a bitter, but red none the less...
