COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Irish Ale is one of our great seasonal ales. What allows this red ale to be so approachable is the Melanoidin Malt which helps create the unique “toasty” flavor. Our use of specialty grains make this beer unique and the complexity of the roasted Munich Malt and rich caramel malt give this beer its depth and richness of flavor! The intricate culmination of malt provides plenty of body and mouth feel to this gorgeous Irish style ale.

Pours to an amber color. Aroma is not very pleasnt; very malty. Thin mouthfeel is very thin and the taste is malty.Not much lingering finish, it just doesn’t do anything for me, and I wouldn’t get this again.

Bottle. Pours a dark orange with no head. Sweet malt aroma. Flavor has toast, and some caramel. Finishes doughy. Nothing really stands out about this beer, but it’s very much drinkable. Not bad.

jgb9348 (4853) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Rich deep amber coloured body with a light brown glow and a thick, three centimetre tall very soapy and broad bubbled tan head - ugly. Aroma of nuts, earth, copper, metal, water and some light soap - not too pleasant. Light to Medium-bodied; Good malty flavour with some earth and nuts up front fading to an apple, pear, figs, raisins and a little light hoppy flavour. Aftertaste shows mostly fruits with a big malty touch and a light caramel and toffee sweetness at the very end. Overall, a decent beer with some confusing flavours and a good sweetness, but a beer to try if you really like the style, otherwise, a decent offering. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from La Bodega in Anchorage, Alaska on 04-October-2013 for US$1.85 sampled at home in Upstate, New Paltz, New York on 10-May-2014.

cmonster (984) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Near clear dark orange-amber in color with a short beige head. Aroma is quite malty with some fruity elements. Not too complex. Medium sweet malty flavor and a medium body. True to style. More red than amber.

brenn79 (1582) - Idaho, USA - JUN 7, 2011
12 oz. bottle- Pours clear red with a nice 1 finger head that eventually recedes, the aroma is caramel malt, sweet and sugary. The taste is dry, it tastes similar to an amber ale, which in my opinion is not good. Body is medium, carbonation is medium low.

Simple malty ale without much character. Easy to drink but there are many better ales available.

Bottle. Nicely malty amber ale, heaps of sweet caramel, slightly nutty. Simple but tasty.
