Bottle. Nose has herbal-spicy hop aroma, some maris-like UK malt notes - these always taste like musty caramel to me. Flavor is malt forward - great textured and relatively complex graininess, light notes of toasted bread, some mild berry-like sweetness, finishes with a modicum of bitterness and mildly floral hops. Pretty good - similiar to an ESB with a little less earthiness.

Translucent copper hue. Minimal sized head with little retention. Relatively stunted malt, caramel, and roast aroma. Significantly better taste. Smooth and creamy texture complimented with flavours of malt, caramel, roast, mild scotch, and a slightly hoppy finish.

I have mixed feelings on this beer. It is excellent in a few ways: body is thick and rich, flavors are fruit and malt, nose is minimal but enticing. There isn’t much that makes this beer sing though. It’s pretty one level. Not the most drinkable but fairly refreshing.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
A- Caramel, subtle spice, malty.
A- Dark amber color, hazy liquid, off white head.
T- Caramel, spices, malty, alcohol burn.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, sharp finish.
O- Decided to pop this open for St. Patrick’s day since it was the only "Irish" beer I had to go with dinner. This was a mistake. Strong alcohol burn and not much flavor other than some caramel and spice. Just plain awful.

Tap at The Jeffrey. You know you have a stats addiction when there is far better beers to fill my flight with but I need more Irish Ale ticks so go with this instead. Pours reddish. Nose is caramel and malt. Tastes malty, of caramel, lightearthy bitters, red fruit, and toast. Slick palate.

Reddish yes very lean amber bock like...a good beer but average and sub for this brewery. Appeals to masses I guess no bad funk going on so above average then I digress.

From a bottle... Pours a dark amber with a creamy head. Nice carbonation and lacing. The aroma is a sweet roasted caramel with a piney backbone. Taste is sweet, with slight hops and roasted coffee. Finish is clean. An enjoyable beer.

355ml bottle. Amber pour, very light roastiness which keeps it distint but overall like most in this style its boring.
