The Irish Red Ale is an all-malt ale brewed with toasted caramel malt to naturally produce its signature red color. Its fruity nose and initial malt sweetness is a classic interpretation of the style.

Pours a dark ruby color with a full light tan head. Toasted malt aroma along with some breadiness. Dry crisp taste not sweet at all. Flavor of the malt dominates somewhat buttery along with toasted bread characteristics. Not really my idea of an Irish Ale but an enjoyable brew nonetheless.

Interesting, sort of. This is way better than their Marzen. Poured with some head and lace. Nice red color. Malt and again some circus peanuts in the aroma. Lots of toasty malt in the flavor with a bit of sweetness to balance. Has an unusual character of "old beer" though. Body is full. Might or might not order another.

Dark red color with a pretty good sized head. A lot of malt and dark sugar in the aroma. Flavor is very sweet caramel malt with a light herbal bitterness in the finish. It’s nice to see the Macros brewing something with flavor in it but this just isn’t my favorite. It’s way too sweet and not bitter enough for an ale.

Any macrobrewery which attempts to to create craft beer get begruging respect from me, as if atoning for their sisn of forcing completely bland beer on the American public. Nice dark red ruby color. Small but persistent white head. The aroma is entirely mlats, wih notes of caramel and bread. Very pleasant. The flavor is true to the style: all malt, some sweetness resembling caramel, toffee. The finish had a nice bittering from the modest amount of hops present. Realy not bad at all.

A darker red than most with a nice head. Really did not like bitter finish. Not a red I would recommend or buy again.

Poured into a tall glass from the bottle to drink. A toasty caramel malt and barely aroma was most present, with a weaker grainy hops mix. The beer was a semi-clear, rusted-copper color with a big foamy tan head that had good retention and cling. The taste was sweet and malty with a bittering effect too. A thinner, watery beer with lower carbonation and a mild feel on the palate.

Bottle. Poured a clear red color with a very nice (2 1/2 finger) head. Aroma of caramel and toasted malts. Beer had a medium body, somewhat creamy texture, average carbonation, and a dry finish. The flavor was the same as the smell, just not as good. Overall, I just am not a fan of red beers and this one did nothing to improve my thoughts.

Bought as part of the mix pack. Poured from the 12-oz bottle a deep red color with a nice fluffy white head. The smell was of slightly toasted malt. Taste of caramel and toasted malt, with some sweetness in the finish.
