2.7/5 rDev -15.4%
Newcastle Werewolf is not necessarily an "Irish" beer, but it is classified as an Irish Red Ale, so we figured it would be a good place to kick off our week...
Werewolf pours reddish amber, with an inch of off-white head that provides for some lacing. Muted tones of toast, rye, nuts and some earthiness are present in the nose. The flavors follow the nose, with the addition of berries and some vinous (sherry?) hints, as well as some earthy hop bitterness. Lower levels of carbonation are met with a medium-light body in this "Blood Red" ale.

12 oz bottle. Pint glass.
A: Mostly clear, apple-red pour with a finger of dirty white head.
S: Caramel and toasted grains. Nothing else.
T: Caramel, toasted bread, some tasty fruitiness, and toffee.
M: Medium-light thickness and average carbonation.
O: It's drinkable but not one I'll reach for again.

Poured from a 12 ozer. into a Bear Republic pint and the brew is a reddish amber, with a nice 2 finger off white head and nice layered lacing on the glass.
The aroma is rye, malts, and a touch of sweetness.
The flavor follows the nose although it is more sweet than the spicey rye that I was expecting. The toastiness is here, but it isn't a strong presence.
The mouthfeel is medium light with light carbination and a dry finish. This one hits alot of points per beer style, but of the few Irish Red's I've tryed it tends to be a hair to sweet of a style for me.
An easy drinker for sure, it needs a bit more hops to make this style one that I would gravitate towards. Per style description this to me is a B brew.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a BrewDog cervoise glass. No date, but this one is probably pretty old...I bought it for $5/6-pack about three months ago.
A: Substantial, bubbly head (three fingers). The beer is not quite blood-red, but is red-gold. Clear, with good lacing.
S: Bright berries and bready malts. Lightly sour, lightly dry.
T: Much the same as the smell, but with the addition of chocolatey dryness at the endtaste. Berry sweetness combined with the relatively thin body and understated carbonation makes this taste a little bit like raspberry lemonade. Then the drying malt and subtle hops remind me that this is definitely an ale, and a pretty good one at that.
O: I like it, especially for the price. Nothing that's going to knock your socks off, but a solid beer, and a damn sight preferable to Newcastle Brown.

Picked up a six at Total Wine in Columbia, SC. Pours a clear coppery color with some ruby highlights. Thick rocky head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is classic English, malty, caramel,with just a faint aroma of English hops. This beer kinda reminded me of the old Bass before InBev moved the brewing location and ruined it. Well balanced with a fruity slightly malty flavour with a little twang in the finish.I would definitely buy it again. Aaahoo!
