3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
