It is clearly deepest red as its darkness comes from roast barley only, no blackened malt. Also, in far smaller quantities the source of the rare and often fraudulently purveyed style known as "Irish red" ale. Hold a Guinness up to a bright light and you can see a ruby glint. Low carb as well due to the lack of malt.

I am going to have to investigate this matter. It make take more than one pint to be certain.

Mind yourself. Between the third and the fifth you stop being able to see the ruby but come the sixth BOOM there it be.
