3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Eccentric Cafe. Light hazy yellow-orange body, thin off-white head. Light cerealy, bready aroma with grassy notes. Cerealy, biscuity body with a touch of Cheerios, but light and rather thin. Perhaps this was intended as a "warm weather" Irish Ale? Certainly not nearly as good as their Whistles Ale.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft At Bell’s. Medium amber with a small white head that diminished quickly. Light hop aroma with a citrus tone. Flavor was a light sweet with short finish. Light body with dry texture. They called a fake Irish ale. Not sure about the fake or the ale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Called a fake Irish ale. Available at the brewpub. The bartender told me they had added blue corn, but that the color did not take. The color was a light gold with low carbonation. This had been made for St. Patrick’s day. The nose is tobacco and cowpie. The taste is salty corn chips, not sweet corn as many beers seem to have. The finish is dry with almonds. A weird beer.
