Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Flowery hops, pale malts, a hint of sweetness, and appropriate bitterness. well balanced, and probably the best beer they make.

Tap at Egans. Amber with slight white head. Aroma of hops. Malt taste at the front and hoppy at the back of the palate. Crisp and quite refreshing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Amber body citrus hop body and nose, some bready notes, a bit of copper, and a nice malt backbone to balance the fruity esters. A bit of charred malt.

This was the best of the beers that they make, but a pretty one-dimensional cascade hop amber thing.

Enjoyed a pint of this one at the bar of Egan and Sons, in Montclair, NJ. This brewpub is unique in the fact, that they don’t do all the steps in the brewing process. They purchase concentrated wort for another brewery/brewpub, then take the process from there. Pours to a slightly hazy, deep amber color, with a thick, white head, and a nice bit of carbonation. The nose on this beer is inviting, with some good, fragrant citus hop aroma, and aroma of sweet and stewed malt. The palate is firm, with good pale, biscuit, and sweet malt flavor, with a touch of esters in the back ground. Finishes sweet malty up front, then rounds out with some nice chop bittereness that lingers. A nice beer, that works well with the Irish/pub fare on the menu. This was a great match with the delicious, savory, cottage pie, that is just outstanding.

6.29.05 Half-decent amber. Turns out pretty good considering they get most of the work done for them and simply ferment at the brewpub.

Pours amber and has a nice fruity smell to it. You taste that as well but it quickly turns into a burst of bitterness. I thought it was pretty good though. Their beers do seem similar though atleast the 2 I had.

Not bad, certainly an amber and with some slight sugar-syrupness, but has character. Better than average.
