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.

This reddish amber beer poured with a decent beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a roasted malt flavor that is a bit rough around the edges and a barely discernible bitter hop finish. As usual from A-B, there is just not enough ingredient.

markas101 (2487) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2009
33 cl bottle, Fargo, ND, USA. Pale amber colour, frothy head. Coriander and caramel aroma, quite carbonated. Overly sweet roasted flavor, second sip is better, bitter (in a bad way) aftertaste.

2.9
bhensonb (15617) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Bottle from BevMo. Dark coppery red color with a decent beige head. Light spice over roast caramel malt. Medium minus body with mild carbonation. Turns thin. Flavor is malt, and some decent hop, but not unduly sweet or bitter. Despite that there is a strength to the flavor. Has a certain astringency. It can stand with most American versions of the style, though perhaps not toward the front.

mjg74 (3156) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Bottle from BevMo. Dark amber in color. Lightly sweet/spiced malted aroma. Grains and malt seem to dominate the flavor of this brew. A hint of hops in the finish. Drinkable, but pretty average.

morrdt (715) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2009
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Jacksonville, Florida. Pours an amber color with a light head. Aroma is very light with malt and a bit of caramel I think. Taste starts with some malt and finishes with a little bitterness. This is much better than some of the other attempts at specialty beers that Michelob does.

2.5
gorditoabd (636) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 17, 2009
Pours with a regular fizz, color is a rich russet amber. Wants to be caramely, but quickly dies off to a middling flat-bitter. It is quite dry at the end, but doesn’t do much at the start or in the middle. It’s a fine beer if you have to choose between this and a bud light; here’s hoping we’re never in such a predicament.

2.6
MrBunn (2844) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours a ruby brown with a thin head that dies quickly. Aromas are virtually non-existent other than a mild sweetness. Flavor is slightly watery, but not offensive (which is more than I can say for most of Mickelob’s "micros"). Caramel malt with a little bit of dryness in the finish... maybe a little spicy hops.

2.6
puboflyons (3467) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 14, 2009
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 09034-VB54. The pour is a translucent reddish-brown with a bubbly and short-lived beige head. The aroma is extremely sweet smelling as that caramel malt really takes over. The taste leans on the bitter side more than caramel malt and ends mildly dry. Not a lip-smacker but I give Michelob credit for trying.

2.1
mweber962000 (82) - Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2009
bottle. pours like a cola with a head that sticks around for only a few seconds. taste isnt bad just a little too sugary. not a bad beer just wasnt too impressing.
