COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Aroma is a bit weak, but crisp and fairly malty. Color is a reddish gold, what one expects from a beer that is called "Irish Red." Flavor is so-so, better than most Michelob beers I have had - not complex but pleasant and malty. Texture is smooth, fairly typical. OK for parties.

toasty aroma that fits this autumn, malt and hint of bitter aftertaste, another decent brew from a-b

clear dark copper, frothy off white head, minor lacing. aroma is malty sweetness, hint of mustiness. caramel flavors, slighty musty malt. medium bodied, too sweet a finish for my taste. interesting that anheuser busch is attempting to cash in on the craft beer market. i got this in a 20 bottle michelob craft sampler case from sam’s club,

GMUcrew7 (576) - Mason, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2008
First selection from their sampler pack. Pours light brown/dark red color with a fast dissipating tan head. Sweet caramel aroma and not much else. Roasted caramel malt flavor with some toffee and a slightly hoppy/metallic finish. Could be worse, could be better, you has to at least credit Michelob for trying to make decent beer.

Drake (9001) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2008
Bottle from a sampler. Deep red color with an off-white 2-finger head. Fruity and slightly grainy caramel aroma. Taste is caramel and other grains with an earthy finish. Some fruitiness. Not very complex, but fairly pleasant.

Palidor19 (2998) - Brandon, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2008
looks clean, has a nice average bit of malts and hops in the beginning but the finish is not good with astringency and metallic like flavor. average at best.

nick76 (4258) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2008
The aroma is weak but does have some toffee, caramel, hops, and toasted barley malt. The appearance is amber with a big head. The flavor is like the aroma but slightly metallic. The palate is thin but OK. Overall not bad but not great.

thegreenrooster (3307) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 17, 2008
Pour is a dark red with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts with some breadyness. Flavor is more malts with some sugar and a touch of chocolate. Finish leaves a wee bit of hops on the tounge. I thought this would be a lot thinner but this is a pretty heavy ale. Nothing really wrong with this one and i could see my self trying this again.

PorterPounder (5713) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Tallahassee, Fl. - Publix Supermarket - Killearn - part of a Michelob "Craft Collection" 12 Pack. Pours a nice dark amber with a soft, slightly thin off-white head. Pleasant, sweet malty aroma with some brown sugar accents. Earthy flavor with some caramel notes, a bit of dirt and some hints of brown sugar in the back end - turns a bit muddled in the finish. Thick enough mouthfeel. Decent entry from AB - good session possibilities.
