Country House Red Ale

Named for and served at the regionally famous Country House restaurants, Country House Red Ale is produced by Argus Brewery in Chicago.  Country House Red Ale is an Irish-style red ale, but I’ll tell you right off…it ain’t red.  It’s dark gold with a peach cast to it.  It produces a whispy head w/ average lacing.  The bouquet is reminiscent of barnyard hay because something stinky lurks in the background.  There are grainy notes as well, and those are more appealing.  Country House Red Ale is light-bodied, and there is more grain and some grass in the flavor, finishing in a rather bitter manner.  I’m not sure about this one, as much as I want to like it, being a local brew and all.  50/100 Red Ale
