St. John’s Irish Red, Rinn Duin’s – 4.9%

beer_247947Chris Morris, writing at nj.com, recommended this Irish red ale from the Rinn Duin brewery.

He said: “St. John’s pours a deep, hazy amber red with a fluffy tan head. Lacing was on par, while retention was a bit low. The aroma was spot on with the style. Roasted caramel malts, toffee, and a touch of sweetness, mixed with earthy European hops. There was no alcohol smell, which is to be expected from a 4.90% ABV beer.

“The taste followed the aroma nicely. A touch of sweetness that gets quickly overpowered by roasted caramel and toffee flavors. A little fruitiness from the hops comes through, working nicely with the malty body for a smooth taste. As for mouthfeel, again, everything was right on par. A medium, malty body with good, crisp carbonation made for a smooth mouthfeel, not too thin, not too thick.”
