Not one of the better Irish-style beers I’ve sampled. The Celtic Knot poured an amber color with almost no head at all. There was very little lacing and not a whole lot going on in the nose. The body and flavors are a bit bland, too. I tasted mostly semi-sweet malt and some bread flavors. The finish and aftertaste is a bit on the sour side.

Deep, hazy amber with little head. Aroma is of strong soapy/malty yeast. Big yeast comes through up front in the flavor. Very Irish, borderline funky, flavorful. Old malt taste, slight soap. Precedes nutty maltiness. Light and drinkable. Cool.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler poured into pilsner glass. More dark than red in color with a significant tannish head. Suprised by aroma of bittering hops. Taste is very balanced with a strong malt back and backend of the bittering hops. Nicely done for a seasonable, nothing over the top and very sessionable.

Growler from Gettysburg pours medium amber with red highlights. Creamy tanish head quickly forms a ring. Toffee, butter and malty breadiness in the aroma. Medium body with a slight grassy hop bitterness and big malty body. A glass of grain! Pine in there too. Quite sessionable. A bit of a surprise from them.
