Whistler’s ale is a fantastic unfiltered Irish Ale - cloudy red, makes you think a bit of iron oxide in water, but not orangey. Grain husk aroma, slightly acrid and smoky. Very fresh and clean, very biscuity/toasty, but grainier - very little hop presence or sweetness. Not as sharp at Great Lakes Conway. Delicious and a reall session ale - had on tap with Heather and lids and the new in-laws.

On tap at the Eccentric Cafe. Bells continues to impress- their foray into Irish Ales has produced my favorite example to date. This beer poured a hazy orange-brown color, topped by a thin cream-colored head. Strong toast/cheerios and chocolate aroma. Dry and cerealy. Flavor is likewise extremely toasty and grainy with chocolate notes in addition to just a touch of caramel and fruit. Medium-bodied with nice complexity, this beer is packed with flavor for 4.5% ABV. Another welcome addition to the Bells lineup- this should be bottled.
