COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Can an ale be both rich and flavorful & light and drinkable? Our Irish Red satisfies both parties, with a big chewy malt character and smoothness for days. McLovin is brewed with an array of imported caramel and roasted malts, and distinctively fruity and aromatic English yeast, and is nitrogen-charged for a creamy texture and beautiful cascading presentation.

At E. Side Mr. Brews taphouse. A decent version of a Irish ale. not too challenging but that is ok sometimes. Malt, a little caramel. Very drinkable. Serving; tap

arkurzynski (2463) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2016

2.7
hotstuff (5252) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Rated on 7-04-2015 at Vintage Brewing Company, Madison, WI. This draft beer is presented with a small beige head that has a long retention, copper transparent body, very little carbonation observed, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt and fruity. The flavor is caramel malt, fruity and semi-sweet. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, a drinkable beer but it lacks character and flavor.

3.2

Draft. Hazy brown color, small tan head. Aroma of caramel, toffee. Taste is lightly nutty caramel. OK.

thedm (6319) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 6, 2015
This draft brew from the brewery poured a very small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a uncarbonated transparent light orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was Irish Red malty. The crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a mild Irish red malt aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of semi-sweet Irish red malt and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

3.1
Dogbrick (13748) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. Clear copper color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, caramel and slight hops. Light body with flavors of caramel malt, toffee and earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

2.8
DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Taster on tap at Old Fashioned in Madison, Wisconsin. Caramel malt up front, and some dark fruitiness. Spicy malt. Not much interesting about it at all. Very basic Irish Red. Clear dark red color. Thin off-white khaki head. Not much lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft / crisp lighter carbonation. Light slick texture. Pretty boring, basic stuff. Just amber sweet beer. Nothing wrong with it, really. Just the most basic, boring style of beer possible
