3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Custom Brewcrafter’s St. Patrick’s Irish Ale is a very clear ruby ale with a thin white head that vanishes and leaves decent lacing on the glass. It has a very faint, slightly sweet, malt aroma with a note of herbal, medicinal hops. It’s light bodied, slick and a little watery. It has a slightly watery finish, but it doesn’t leave any grittiness. It’s lightly flavored, but well balanced; slightly sweet with an herbal, medicinal bitterness. Yup, it’s an Irish Red. It’s quite drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle shared by garthicus. Hazy deep amber with a smallish frothy off-white head. Smells sweet with a bit of paint, vaguely floral. Taste is generic grain and lame anonymous bitterness, nothing much to it - a bit of damp newsprint perhaps, but not even robust enough to muster up offensiveness. Still, light-bodied, somewhat harsh aftertaste (2+). Big ol’ bottle of "meh" indeed.
