Red ale covers a very broad spectrum of styles, with everything from IPA-like British beers to Belgian ambers, Flemish reds, Irish red ales and German red beers. Its origins are in the lightly hopped pale beers from Ireland, which are given a little colour and caramel flavour from the addition of roasted malts. Irish red ales are slightly sweet but given an earthy and spicy edge through the use of British hops. As you can imagine, the Americans took that style and used their own very citrusy hops to create a malty IPA-like red ale that is a fast-growing style all over the world. Beer Merchants’ range of red ales includes a great mix of classic Belgian red beers that verge on the sourer end of the spectrum, through to new and exciting brews from superstar craft producers like Northern Monk and Tiny Rebel. Have a browse, try some styles, and we’re sure you’ll find a delicious red ale beer that suits your tastes. Check out our red beers above and contact our helpful team if you need any assistance.
