I am a little disappointed. I was expecting ssomething heavier and more malty. What I got was a very watery weak brown ale. Aroma was nice, nutty with malt sweetness ans smoke. Appearance waas transparent brown with an off-white head that does last and leaves a nice lacing. Thats about all I have to say about this one.

Ahhh... weird. Plastic-y tasting with brown sugar tones. Very odd acidic flavor, dark honey color. Lacing on top throughout.

Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. I found this to be a bland grocery store Irish Ale. Nice red color but the flavor and aroma didn’t do much for me.

nice,balanced with a good flavor very little after taste well worth getting more but the price i felt is a little high at $11/6-pack not priced in the heavy drinking range but well worth it if you wanna treat yourself once in a while

Massive head and a stunning deep ruby colour. I found lots of flavours including a biscuit nose that became quite cookie-like on the palate, and some apples in the after-taste. But I wouldn’t rate it high as there was no overall impression of high quality. A very pleasant, interesting and complex beer that doesn’t quite come together.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2005 Sits in the glass like a liquid chestnut, waiting to be drunk. While the wheat beer from Carlow Brewing were pretty disappointing, this "Traditional Celtic Beer" has its sweet malt character balanced by fruity aromatic overtones. Somewhat mild and sourish, and at 4.3% abv, it’d take a lot of them to get you buzzed. A nice alternative to Harp’s when in the Emerald Isle.

Sweet malty nose, big off-white head, medium red body. Somewhat sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Nothing special.

Could have predicted that I’d hate this. Red, hopped out the wazoo. Way too strong. Not happy. Not that I could tell you what the flavor was beyond bitter and hoppy. That’s all I got.
