Review: Michelob Irish Red

Michelob Irish Red from Anheuser Busch, Inc.
Rating: B-

From a Michelob Craft Sampler pack.

Appearance: True to the name, a deep red garnet color, with a two finger head. Moderate retention, nice lacing.

Smell: Malt dominant, with caramel and maybe burnt toast. Slightly metallic.

Taste: A fairly well balanced beer - malty, but dry. Roast, caramel, moderately bitter. Not bad.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, lightened by fairly spritzy carbonation.

Drinkability: Quite a decent beer. Lots of roasty flavor in a beer that is still "light" and fairly easy to drink. Worthy effort.
