I don’t particularly care for many of the beers that fall under the “red” distinction. Regardless, I tried “Life” a couple of years ago and was happy to see it return again. This doesn’t taste like a typical Irish Red. The malt profile seems to be more complex – slightly toasty, almost earthy. Despite the alcohol content, this beer isn’t “Hot” or strongly alcoholic. Overall very nice.
I'm one of the lucky ones... I was drinking Minnesota craft beer before I probably should have been doing so... that's not to say that I wasn't drinking Old Style as well, but we won't talk about that... I'm the founder of MNBeer.com and a hardcore advocate of local craft brew. I like to brew beer as well. I also like to ride bikes, but that has nothing to do with beer, so I guess I'll shut up and drink. View all posts by ryan
