For Slane’s Ale™, we blend 5 grains and 2 hop varieties to produce a luscious ale whose smooth flavor is complimented by both C02 and Nitrogen/Creamer dispensing. Its beautiful deep ruby color is accented by the tight, creamy head produced by either of these methods. Since Diamond Knot uses no filters or pasteurization to clear our products, you are guaranteed every sip of full ale flavor!

Dark amber, unfiltered and strongly carbonated. Hops flavor up front, creamy medium body. Mildly bitter hops finish. Inoffensive yet lacking any memorable character.

Nocturne (1380) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
Tap at Devil Craft Hamamatsucho, Tokyo. Clear amber with an off-white head. No lace or retention. Interesting earthy, tobacco-like vibe running through it. Other than that not a great deal going on. Pleasant enough though.

Draft pour at Frankies pizza. Pours a reddish orange color with a somewhat absent aroma. Flavor is a little nutty, with a malt forward taste. Slightly dusty finish. Not bad. Not great. Can’t complain on this one.

Deep copper and amber coloured body with a hint of ruby-tinted brown as well, all with a thinnish, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, toasted malt, alcohol and a bit of nuts. Medium-bodied; Rich flavour of toasted malt, alcohol, grain, rye, nuts and heaps of caramelised sugars - very nice and pungent. Aftertaste shows a big malt character with hints of nuts and rye and some subtle sweetness to finish it off. Overall, a nice beer for the style with a little sweetness at the end - very rich as well. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 30-March-2014 for US$3,99 sampled at home in Washington on 19-August-2014.

Good. Nothing exceptional, but nothing not. Well balanced. Good malts; good hoppiness. Downside if anything is maybe a tad too watery. Wouldn’t mind more maltiness. But, overall . . . good.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark amber color, clean, with compact head. Caramel aroma, with a mild but interesting fruity side. Soft mouthfeel; strong caramel base, with nutty accent, moderate residual sweetness, light fruity touch; quite strong nutty bitterness too, and some hop resins in the final.
A well brewed beer, clean.

BeerandBlues2 (11054) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours clear dark amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is toast, nutty, and light chocolate malt, light earthy hops and dates. Flavor is sweet malt dominant, light earthy hops, medium-light hop bitterness to somewhat balance the sweetness, no fermentation esters, and a dry finish. Medium-light body and moderate carbonation.

On tap. Pours a dark mahogany/red with light head. Vegetable hop aromas. Flavors of resin and sharp acidic malts. Not a fan.
