A - Gorgeous in color, McLovin has a crystal clear body that allows it's bright ruby amber color to really shine! The large off-white head vanishes to a thin skim of foam with next to no lace due to it's lack of essential foam-stabilizing hop proteins.

S - McLovin is malt focused with a persistent caramellly sweet nose but also brings English toffee, toasted white bread, and just a hint of roasted, dark malt for a round and smooth nose that's right on par with the style!

T - Wonderfully malty, Vintage's McLovin begins sweet with caramel and toffee notes washing over the tongue but finishing with a perfect level of dry toasted malt character of lightly buttered toast and suggestions of cocoa.

M - With a lower level of carbonation, McLovin has a smooth, somewhat slick mouthfeel with a mildly sweet finish and balancing level of dryness from toasted malt. Near perfection!

O - McLovin is one of the greatest Irish-style beers I've ever laid lips on, drinking wonderfully with full and varying malt flavor of caramel, toffee, toast, and light cocoa. It's easy drinkability makes for a great sessionable pint with sweetness meticulously balanced by toasted and roasted malts!

4.09/5  rDev +4.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours clear brown in color with some slight red hues. Head is light tan, frothy and about one finger.

There are some really nice big caramel malt notes in the nose that there is also a really great lightly toasted grainy malt and a very little spicy hop presences.

Taste follows the nose and is malt forward. Lightly sweet caramel malt flavor fade into a bold bread like malt and some really clean yeast that works well to showcase the malt. Very light bitterness and a very small hint of herbal spicy hop.

Mouthfeel is great. Light but not to thin carbonation is moderate and give it a fluffy creamy feel. Very crisp finish.

Serving type: growler
