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.
