Bought this in a variety pack and got two bottles along with two Black Lagers and two Coastal Wheats. Pours a dark reddish amber hue with a fluffy off-white head that leaves plenty 0' lacing behind. Smell is of fruit (cherries, perhaps), caramel malt, and fresh-baked bread. Taste is very full and pulls through with a sweetness up front followed almost immediately by a salty, biscuity flavor. Delightful to say the least. A beer such as this has a lot going for it: alluring appearance, full heady aroma, and a complex taste. Plus the mouthfeel and drinkability are way up there. In conclusion, this is by far the best red ale I've ever had. If you're looking for a good time, pick this one up and enjoy the ride.

Samuel Adam's Irish Red 6pk bottles $9.99(OH)
12 oz brown bottle poured into a stemless white wine glass. freshness date marked as a notch. i prefer a printed date.
pours a deep amber/copper color. two fingers of thin head that stay around for a little while. giving way to decent lacing.
i smell some caramel, malted hops, a small note of fruitiness was detected.
the taste is that of the smell. a slightly bitter sweet malty start. followed by a slight hop, sweet finish.
mouth feel is medium bodied. good carbonation. that coppery feel is present and clings to your mouth.
overall not bad. however i have had better Irish red ales. Conway's Irish Ale to name just one. i wasn't a big fan of this brew, so i don't think i will be getting anymore of this anytime soon.
