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 ruby amber with a small, fluffy head. Aroma is of banana and caramel. Better than expected aroma. Flavor is initially metalllic, but then appear small honey, caramel, and generic malt flavors.. The flavor is actually okay on this one. Not great, but decent, and pretty bold for it being an AB brew. Mouthfeel is decent, medium with high carbonation. Drinkable. Not memorable, but not too shabby either. I hope that a big company like AB can continue its slow progression into craft beer, though it isnít quite there just yet. Overall, good minus.

Hangover (1133) - oxford, Georgia, USA - APR 14, 2009
Impressive reddish-copper pour with a thin tan head. Malty aroma with some caramel and dough/bisquit. Medium-bodied. Slightly toasty flavor with a bit of sweetness. Some metallic notes on the back-end. Itís decent but itís just too tame to really get much of a rating.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7670) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2009
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright red-brown color with a large orange-khaki head. The aroma was sour, tangy, fruity and malty with a light caramel undertone. The flavor was tangy, tart and fruity with notes of caramel and nut underneath. The finish was long, fruity and malty. Pretty good.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - APR 6, 2009
Bottle. Sweet malty aroma. Deep copper body, small light tan head. Flavor is metallic, overly sweet, and predominated by what tastes like artificial caramel flavoring. Watery unpleasant finish.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 5, 2009
Pours amber with a slightly tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt. Taste is caramel sweetness with a little bit of roastiness. Not really that bad. Seems underrated just because of AB.

2.8
MrBeerFanatic (1052) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 5, 2009
Pours a dark red amber with a slowly lasting off-white head. Nutty aroma, with hints of caramel and dark fruits. Flavor is of malty caramel, somewhat nutty, with a faint hop note and a slightly bitter end. Semi sweet, and you can just barely taste the toasted caramel. Not too bad but on the watery side and needs more depth.

2.9
beerbill (3616) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 4, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours a crystal clear coppery red with a moderate yellow-white head that disappeared soon after he the first sip and left no lace. Very weak aroma of malt. The malt in the flavor is more discernible than the aroma, bit is still fairly mild. This beer is definitely a step in the right direction, it just needs more oomph.

From a bottle poured a light copper color with a good amount ofe head. Nice toasted malt flavor with a lingering finish.
