Pint draft at the Blue Moose, Prairie Village, Kansas. Pour is orange-amber, with a bit of haziness initially which cleared fast. About a one inch, dirty snow white head. Aroma of mostly malts, biscuity and pretty fresh smelling. Taste was straight forward and enjoyable. Mostly the malt, with a bit of dried fruit in the middle, and a decent bitter finish. Overall, a very drinkable beer, though nothing really jumps out at you. I had the first few pints off a fresh keg, and that may have helped a lot on this one.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a mostly clear copper-amber color with a medium light beige head. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is fruity malt with a touch of hops. Medium, smooth body with flavors of earthy malt and light fruity undertones. Slight hops presence as well. The finish is short and malty with a lightly bitter hops aftertaste. Just average.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - JUN 7, 2007
Pours a clear copper with a slight, off-white head. The nose is of sweet malts with a light hop background. Light in the mouth and effervescent, the flavor is sweet caramel malts up front with a crisp lightly bitter finish. A decent amber and a nice partner to pub fare.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 1, 2006
More of an Amber in my opinion, but whatever, I don’t make the beer. Has a light hoppy fruit aroma. Malt body is a little on the weak side, a little bready with some caramel. Very drinkable, just not overly complex.

seamus77 (31) - kansas city, Missouri, USA - JUL 17, 2006
cask. amber in colour, light on the hops compared to blvd’s irish, miniscule head, malt and to a lesser extent caramel, while not mind-blowing, still quite drinkable and went quite well with the nachos, portabello chile, and spent- grain bread. this is a food-ale, thirst-quenching, and doesn’t compete with the menu. a pleasant brew overall.

Braudog (5584) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 19, 2006
Draft at the St Louis Microfest 5/13/06: True amber hue. Verrry malt character, slick caramel cadny flavors. An OK amber.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 18, 2006
On Tap: I like Irish and amber ales. This one was a littlte weak. Not a whole lot going on, yet nice.

Terminus (3229) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAY 16, 2006
tap-st louis microfest. pours copper amber with a soapy white head. aroma of caramel malt and earthy tones. flavros are somewhat roasty and earthy with some dark fruit notes. some diacytl creeps in there as well affecting the overall flavor here. body is somewhat thin and sloppy. not that great of an irish ale.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 26, 2006
On tap at the 2006 Best of the Midwest Brewers’ Festival. Medium copper in color with a small white head. Sweet hoppy malty aroma. Has a milky mouthfeel. True to style. Pretty tasty.

Draft. All malt here. Sweet with some fruity esters. slight bitter in the finish. Worth the time.
