In celebration of St. Patrick's Day I decided to skip a normal, non-Irish review and go for a special. Today is an Irish Blank and Tan. Instead of Guinness I used, my preferred, Murphy's Irish Stout. I was thinking of going with Harp, but wanted something a bit more flavorful than a Euro Pale Lager that just happens to be Irish-made. I went with the ever solid Smithwick's. Although it isn't exactly 'tan' the Irish Red made for a good mixture of flavor in my Black and Tan. Unfortunately, the color differential was much more understated than a pale lager would've been.
Finally, sit back and enjoy your delicious and eye-catching beer.
Happy Saint Patrick's Day! Drink beer.
