Brewsday Tuesday: Samuel Adams Irish Red
I picked up a variety six pack of Samuel Adams from the Winn Dixie. One of the beers included was their Irish Red. Let’s see how it fares.
Name: Samuel Adams Irish Red
Brewed by: Boston Beer Company
Style/ABV: Irish Red Ale / 5.8%
Appearance: Pours a reddish brown with a thin cream colored head.
Smell: Heavy on the malty aromas with dough and caramel dominating.
Taste: Dough, caramel with floral hop notes at the finish. Not too shabby.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with medicum carbonation.
Overall: I enjoy Irish Red Ales and Samuel Adams’ offering does not disappoint. It is a very drinkable beer, and at 5.8% abv will sneak up on you if you’re not careful.
Final Grade: B
