My latest attempt is just a red ale. No claim to irish heritage, haha. I like it. Very simple grain bill. Out of style IBU for an Irish red. Good easy drinker, nice bitterish balance and decent color, good head and lacing. I fermented it very cool so it's quite clean compared to my irish red. I thought I'd try some of that copper carapils for coloring on my next red ale.
