I'm new to the style besides Killian's which I'm not sure is an accurate representation. I don't really expect it to be a perfectly craft brewed Irish Red Ale but we'll see. Poured from a 12 oz bottle purchased over spring break in Destin.
A - Poured into a SA perfect pint; it actually kinda looks like Boston lager in a way. Clear amber color with a good foamy head that eventually fizzes out to a ring around the top of the glass. Laces quite nicely. Not really red like I was expecting but still looks good.
S - Mostly malt aromas. Smells a little phenoly/metallic but not too bad.
T - Tastes about average. Like I said I'm not too experienced on the style, but it seems kinda like a weak scotch ale. Lots of sweet malt up front. Hops not too bitter on the finish but certainly present.
M - Crisp and refreshing. Medium body.
O - Its average. Its not too much of a step-up from Killian's but its a beer brewed for a mass of people coming into an Irish pub so like I said I didn't really expect it too be super stellar. Its one I would certainly order as a staple at Mcguires, but I won't be picking up a sixer next time I'm in town.
