Can’t say that I see why this one a gold medal at some tournament lately, but then again, it’s a pretty decent Irish ale. Too much malt, like most of them, but okay.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear and deep amber-red with intricate, lasting lace. Smooth carbonation was nice, but weight was kind of thin. Sweet notes of caramel, toffee, toast and a hint of sour milk. Bitterness was mild. Had a slight alcohol edge. Not too bad, but it didn’t seem to have a lot of personality.
