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!

Tampa, Fl - Total Wine - 22 oz bomber. Light brown - tea colored pour with an off-white head. decent lacing. Earthy, peat-like aroma, quite pleasant. Flavor has some sweet toffee. a hint of milk chocolate, some back end vegetable notes that remind me a bit of rhubarb. Mouthfeel is decently thick. A very flavorful Irish Ale.

Bottle from TW; poured a burnt orange color with a large off white head. Aroma of caramel, earth, orange, earth, and "Irish" malt. Flavor had a nice pleasantness to it, but nothing really substantial. NOt much deviation from the style, but good enough.

The aroma is grainy and sweet with cardboard and citrus - grassy hops. The appearance is amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall this is average at best.

Palidor19 (3164) - Brandon, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2012
The taste is very grainy with a harsh bite. Malt is not strong and the hops are biting but not very overpowering. Weak mouthfeel but has a great drinkability

This poured a deep reddish copper with an off white head. The nose was a blast of roasted nuts. The palate is heavy on the malt, and the hops are present, but extremely mild. Bitter finish.

Bottle   Copper with a deep red tinge, thing sudsy off-white head, sparce lacing.   Malty nose, a little mealy and nutty.   Low hop, if at all.   Some cereal.   Really nutty and mealy on the tongue, semi-sweet, with faint wet cardboard and overcooked vegetable on the finish.   Has a certain malty aspect that seems very cereal like.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not as interesting as other reds.   A little too mealy and cereal like for my tastes.   Prefer Brian Boru over this one.   Not bad, but just not my style I think.
