Military specialists often wear colored berets to identify their specialty. In the Air Force, the Scarlet Red Beret is worn by the Combat Controllers who do the dangerous job of directing aircraft from behind enemy lines. This Scarlet Beret Irish Red is a classic Irish Red. It is lightly malty and medium bodied with low bitterness and a gentle sweetness. Like a Combat Controller, it is very good at what it does, which in this case, is being an easy drinking pint.
