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.

12oz bottle from Michelob sampler 12pk, pry off cap. pours deep mahogany red, light tan creamy head. Rich caramel malt, deep malt aroma. nice toasted grain smell. Full flavored malt. Toasted grain flavor is perfectly balanced with a crisp hop bitterness. Medium bodied, very impressing. A job well done by the brewers at A-B for these Michelob beers. Finishes with a slight dryness, bold sticky sweet toased malt, and a light crisp hop presence. textbook and well done. Cheers 6,5,8,5,14

bottle - Pours clear red. It has a mild toasted malt aroma. The flavor is stale toasted malt with a trace of hops. This watery, bland brew might be A-B’s latest attempt to compete with Killian’s (remember Killarney’s?), but it’s pretty much crap. Don’t bother.

Pours a clear deep red color with a thin head. Light malty aroma. Some caramel as well. Malty taste with a dry finish. Not bad from Michelob.

Poured 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.

My buddy offered this up to me along with some of the others from the Mich mixed 12 and we came to the conclusion that this one had been fermented with old pennies in the secondary.

Bottle. Sweet sticky caramel nose with a little low-bitterness earth and wood. Ruby-mahogany pour with a well-tanned, syrupy rocky head. Watery body, lightly bitter taste with earth and not-so-sticky caramel. Some light astringency and a hint of sourness, a bit of a muddle on the whole. And not so clean - actually a bit nasty with time.

This was my favorite Michelob out of the ’Craft pack’ I purchased. Crisp medium bodied Irish Ale with roasted caramel malts and even a bit of a bite. It’s beers like this that remind me A-B is capable of making decent beers.

12oz bottle from Michelob Craft Collection 12 pack. Pours dark amber red with a small tan head that quickly disappears. Not much on the nose, just a faint aroma of sweet toasted malt. Initial taste is sweet with hints of caramel and sweet fruit. Finishes dry but smooth. Mouthfeel lives up to the label, very malty carbonation but a little watery. Not bad. If they made this available in sixers I would pick one up from time to time.
