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!

anders37 (16582) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2008
Draught @ the brewpub. Pours a dark amber color with a small off-white head. Sweetish malty aroma with some hints of caramel and some weak hints of hops. Sweetish malty hoppy flavor with caramel hints. Has a sweetish malty finish with some hints of caramel and hops in the aftertaste.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 2, 2008
On draught at the brewpub in Mukilteo, Washington. Pours a clear dark copper amber with a creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates to a creamy white ring that has nice retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of semi-sweet caramel malt, some brown sugar, a touch of smoked peat and dry earth herbs. Taste is medium bodied, very light carbonated with flavors of smoked caramel malt, some light roasted nuts, and very light flowery hops. Finish is semi-sweet at first and then turns to a dry roasted dark malt aftertaste that slowly disappears. Not as bitter finish as the ESB except more malt flavors.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2008
draft @ brewery - brown cola and big off-white head; lots of lacing per drafts at DN; not too sweet and drinks nice and smooth; a mild richness to it with some candy malts and slight sweetness; dangerously drinkable

after4ever (6111) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 7, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Crystal clear deep ruddy dark amber with thin grayish head and decent lacy sheets. Nice malty sweet caramel on the nose without a doubt. Medium body with nice soft well-balanced carb. Rich caramel and light crackery toast on the mid-palate. Perfectly modulated leafy, peppery hop finish that washes into a nice resiny cling.

BrewDad (4909) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Taster - Hop Scotch Spring Beer Festival – Seattle WA
A Reddish amber color with a nice head. This was a very good example of a Irish ale. The malts and light hops with a hint of smokiness this was a great easy to drink brew. It was earthy butt hat was what I liked about this brew. Great Beer.

Oakes (12361) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2007
Draught, Fred’s Rivertown Alehouse, Snohomish, WA
Red colour. Slightly toasty aroma. A little bit malty on the palate. Full enough body despite not having much flavour. Slightly earthy finish. You won’t really notice this beer over the course of the pint but you’ll enjoy it at least a little bit.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Of a deeper amber hue than their ESB and with a crisp head. Little aroma wafts off this beer. For the relatively modet 5.7% abv in this beer, the spike in taste is very apparent. A sharply malty beer with a strong taste of alcohol that could use more of a hop balance.

JorisPPattyn (7885) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 18, 2006
Draught Dark brown beer with good off-white head. Bit of bready nose and some caramel. Excellent little-sweet flavour. Surprisingly crisp - in the good way - greenery character. Medium bodied, rounded, sweet aftertaste and a bit toasted. For such a dreary style, really excellent - gets extra point for that.
