12oz bottle. poured a clear medium orange color. Nice copper-ish hue. The head was a few fingers high and off white. it reduced to a thin film after a minute or so. Some lace remained on the glass at the end. The aroma was subdued overall with delicate toffee, brown sugar, grass, and pineapple notes. Light to medium bodied and drier than I had expected with minimal bitterness emerging after the finish. Earthy hop, wet stone, biscuity malt, and light soda water flavors. Not a bad sessioner.

Bottle. Pours a reddish orange color with lively carbonation and a medium head. Flavor is soft semi sweet pale malts, middle is lightly fruity and sweet, finish is candy sugars and a splash of hops. Easy drinking and smooth, cheers to solar energy!

Clear copper color with a small head. Malty aroma, light caramel. A bit of butter and some orange. Very biscuity and toasted malt taste. Light raw grains. Quite dry. A vinous bitterness towards the end. No idea how this is an Irish Ale, but tasty enough.

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Amber color. Aroma was rather non-descript. I expected a maltier taste based on the description on the label. An OK beer if your thirsty but definitely not a full flavored brew

12 oz bottle sent to me by my 2009 winter Secret Santa. Bottled on OCT notched on the label. Pour is orange copper amber with a nicely formed two inch egg white head. Patchy lacing lines the top of the glass throughout. Aroma of nicely soft semi-sweet caramel maltiness. Light grassy spiciness and pepper behind that. Aroma is one dimensional in the malt, but is so natural and clean that it overcomes this. Taste is a bit sharply caramel and apple fruit sweetness, with the mineral grass and grain picking up midway through and carrying through to the long dry finish. Some clove notes detectable in the aftertaste. Palate is medium to thin bodied, normal carbonation and the clean dry finish. Nice straight forward drinkable beer, thanks Santa.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Pours a glowing transparent copper amber with a thin covering of spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of lightly sweet, toasty and grainy caramel malt with a touch of hay and noble hops. Starts with some light malty sweetness and grain husk notes with some earthy bittering hops before a drier, smooth finish. Fairly true to style, but could be a bit cleaner.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 15, 2009
Pours an amber color with a medium frothy off-white head which leaves some decent webbed lacing. Aroma is lightly toasted malts, bread, and light hops. Taste is much the same. I’d have thought this was a light lager, not an Irish ale. Pretty easy-drinking but nothing special.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 8, 2009
Light amber, thin off white head leaves temporary spots of lace. Light malty aroma, some cooked corn strike a slight off note. Flavor malty, with some added grape or plum elements adding a fruity note the balances some cooked vegetable bitterness. Medium body, drinkable.
