COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our most versatile beer. Good to drink as well as cook with. Light enough to quench a thirst and complex enough to accompany fine dining. Carmel malty sweet fades to a chocolate roasty finish and dry from a touch of rye. 1.057 OG 13 IBU 6%ABV

Deep red-amber body with a medium thick beige head. Aroma of caramelized malt with a fruity, plum-like quality. Medium-high sweet caramel malt flavor. Very mild hop character. Light bitterness with some slightly drying warmth in the finish. Would benefit from further attenuation and a touch more hops. Thanks DarkElf.

Poured with a dark body and traces of a head. Aroma of oranges and tobacco. The taste was full roasted peanuts and some grass.

Pours a dark red, no head. Aroma of moss cherries, and malts. Flavor is acidic, lots of cherries and lemons, smooth, easy drinking.

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Nice looking clear reddish copper, with a very small head. Aroma of toast and caramel, with the caramel comming through in the flavor, as well. Vary rich, malty body, with a dryish finish.

Shag (2638) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 19, 2005
This is probably the best Irish Ale Ive had to date. A dark reddish brown appearance with a moderate head. The flavor was rather complex with some bitterness present. I tasted cherries, nutmeg, and grapefruit. From the looks of it, I enjoyed this more than most people.

My nose scents a combination of items making the aroma such related things as the flower of a rose, butterscotch, honey and malt. The flavor was also interesting being a nature of caramel and other sweet malts. The malt here had somewhat of a chocolate aftertaste and the hops gave a hinder to bitterness across the tongue. Also gave an impression of red licorice during the dry finish. Was a lovely amber red and had a minimum amount of head occurance. I’m not a fan of Irish ales, but Alpine Beer Co.made me relish their version.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2005
Poured an amber color with a red tint. Aroma was malty sweet with caramel and lightly smokey. Flavor starts malty and sweet and finishes semi-dry with a light bitterness. Light to medium body.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2005
Burnt orange/red with a short, tan fizzy head that’s quickly diminishing. Caramel, toffee, peat, slightly meaty. Moderately sweet flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter finish. Medium light body, watery texture, average carbonation. The bottom line is: simple but non-offensive.
