COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This medium bodied beer is amber to copper color. The taste is a sweet caramelly malt flavor, and is moderately hopped. Traditionally an Irish recipe, our amber beer uses 4 different barleys with an ample supply of caramel malt.

deyholla (6863) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber with a slight orange hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a strong butterscotch note with some sweet grains and a bit of light fruit. Flavor has a bit of sweet grain and bread but it is mainly full of butterscotch. Off putting.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2011
On tap at Rowlands Calumet Brewery. Amber with a thin off-white layer on top. Aroma of butter and caramel malt. Taste is once again way too buttery with caramel, malt and salt. Not very good.

Scubatrip (602) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2010
On tap at the brewpub, pours a clear orange with no head and no nose. Tastes like wort, which is to say, it’s not beer yet. Earthy, bad bitter, not terrible, but there are better selections here.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2008
This beer pours a dark clear amber colour with a small, thin white head. Well carbonated, moderately malty aroma- not overly dry but somewhat acidic. Taste is very light, but pleasent.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2007
Last one of the 11 brews tried at the brewpub in one afternoon. Pours an off-redish amber with a thin white head that reveals a good lacing patern inside the glass. Aroma is sweet caramel, walnuts, some citrus and flowery hops. Taste is smooth with a citrus and caramel after taste. Finish is very well balanced with some nut character to the palate. Quite nice.

Really enjoyed this. Similar to the fest, except this had some more sweetness. Great balance between malt/hops.

Nutty aroma. Caramel sweet flavor with nut and sharp stemmy hop accents. Oh no the character filter!!
