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!

On tap. Nose is buttery, caramel, toffee, earthy, a little toast and roast. Not sure if the butter is a line cleaning issue or actually a problematic beer, as DK usually has solid qc IMO. Pours dark reddish auburn, a little foam on top. THe flavor also is malty with bread, toast, toffee, caramel, earthy hops. A little butter in the flavor as well. WIsh it did not have the butter, as the malty notes were interesting and enjoyable. Will have to revisit.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2010
From Pt Roberts (WA) Marketplace. Poured a cloudy, cola-coloured body beneath a thin, tan head. Aroma was of roasted malt. The taste was initially sweet and moved to a bitter finish. Nice! Mouthfeel was solid and smooth. I don’t like Irish ales as much as in the past, but this one ain’t half bad.

bhensonb (11056) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 30, 2010
Bomber from Whidbey Beer Works. Pours very dark ruddy amber with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is creamy/malty. Mildly sweetish. Med. body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is pretty toffee tinged. Not all that sweet and there’s some hop underlayer that keeps it ok. But that caramel/toffee aspect sticks around.

Bomber pours deep clear copper with off white head. The aroma has loads of chewy sweet smelling kettle caramelization with a touch of dark fruitiness in the background. The taste is similar with ample amounts of sweet caramel followed by a modest level of crystal malts and some dark fruitiness. There’s a light roasted malt note leading to some drying astringency to help balance out the sweetness.

skoisirius (1715) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2010
Nice drinking version of the so-called "Irish Ale" from the DK! Honestly, not being too impressed with this style usually, this brew contained a nice body, complexity, and beautiful light blend of malt and hop on the finish. One of the better "Irish Ales" I’ve had!

This beer has what I would describe as a "gentle" flavor. Not weak or watery but instead full of subtle hints of flavor. A very enjoyable brew with a light color and great lacing.
