With a name like Boozy McCreary, you can safely guess that he wasn’t some kind of an altar boy (at least not a sober one).  To a newcomer in the pub, it appeared ol’ McCreary was afflicted with various disorders, what with his incessant blathering and drooling and stumbling about the place.  But to his mates, of course, they understood that his—well—eccentric behavior was simply a testament to his good taste (and apparently unquenchable thirst) for this delicious dark red ale.  To McCreary, this was the perfect ale, with its refreshing and malty smoothness, delicate hop balance and dry roasty finish, so to no one's surprise, it didn’t last long in his pint.  So if you’d like distinguish yourself as a denizen of good taste and go blathering and drooling and stumbling about the pub, then take a cue from ol’ McCreary, and hoist yourself a frothy pint of this amazing Irish red ale, and see how long it lasts in your glass!  Cheers!
