June 21, 2009. That was the second to last time I reviewed an Irish Red Ale! I never realized how much I was neglecting it (or maybe how rare they are?).
Samuel Adams Irish Red pours a dark reddish orange color. Minimal head. It’s mainly malty. Smooth. What I guess I would call “earthy” flavors accompany the caramel maltiness.
I’m not taking my pants off and running around the neighborhood with delight or anything like that, but it’s a decent beer.
