Harpoon Hibernian is an Irish red ale. In its first year of production, it was available only on tap in the Greater Boston area. This was Harpoon's salute to and the celebration of St Patrick. The following year it became Harpoon's official spring seasonal beer. "Hibernian" comes from the name Hibernia, which is Latin for "winter". This name was given to by the Romans who were unaccustomed to the land's cold weather.
Harpoon Hibernian Ale features a deep amber color. The flavor is malty and complex. Hibernian Ale has a moderate hop finish that, along with the generous amounts of malt, makes for a medium bodied, smooth, rich beer. Try serving Hibernian with a hearty stew - the beer's robust character will compliment the bold flavors.
The overall character is a complex maltiness with a deep amber color.
