3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A friend gave me one of these in a bottle. Mcguire’s contracts out the Red to Florida Brewing Co. and you can find these bottles local. It pours golden red with a nice head that fizzles away in a couple minutes. Smells dusty or mucky, I guess, but that is the character of the beer. First taste was a bit nutty, but second has more bitter tart. Light lingering aftertaste, but good.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared pours clear reddish orange color with off white head. Aroma is the best thing about this, medium malt base with some breadiness mild malt flavor with some bread mixed in. Overall not bad but not good either.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. 4.5%. (Four Winds) Pensacola, FL.
Clear amber colour with a small white head.
Fruity, biscuity, sweet and malty aroma. Quite good.
The flavour is more traditional... which means sweet maltiness and mild hoppy notes. Boring. Mr McGuire looks awful lot like Mr Hemingway.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of great caramel, malty goodness and good bread. Pours red with just a little head. Taste is great like a vienna lager. Good caramel taste, and stale bread. Nice irish red. Nothing much to it.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear caramel color from the bottle with quickly dissipating white head that doesn’t really leave lacing. Aroma is bready malt, noble hops, and a slight metallic twinge. Taste follows, tastes kind of old. I should have had it in tap when I was there, decided last minute to grab a bottle to go instead.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lightly hopped, Carmel color, silky on the palette. A descent drink but nothing to knock your socks off.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft at Destin pub. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is malt, some noble hops, grassy with hints of light citrus. Flavor follows closely: malt with hints of grassy hops and maybe some citrus. A malty, sessionable joy of an ale.
