Samuel Adams Irish Red is an ale from their Brewmaster's Collection. As the name says, it has a deep red color. The hops are subtle, unlike so many beers these days. I like that. Understated hops is a good thing, rather than beating me over the head with them. The malt predominates the flavor, but it is less intense, making this beer easier to drink. Better for more situations than the earlier reviewed Double Bock. Well-balanced, this is a beer I could enjoy regularly.

Rating

An excellent microbrew type beer. I would gladly buy this beer regularly, or even enjoy it on tap. Good for relaxing after work.
