COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

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.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
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.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Bottled. Orange amber pour with an off-white head. Slightly bready and very butterscotch laden aroma. Has a lot of buttery diacetyl and a sour whey taste that dominates. Underneath, I can catch hints of malty toffee and bready malt, but the more I sipped, the more the sourness came to dominate. The diacetyl alone wasn’t unbearable, and a certain amount of it added a nice butterscotch character, but the soured aspect was too much for me.
