COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Finnegans Irish Amber is brewed with three varieties of imported two-row malts. The beer is pale amber in color but light in body. A gentle hop bitterness compliments its complex malt character.

Finnegans is currently available on tap and in liquor stores throughout the state of Minnesota. Finnegans is unique in that 100% of the profits are donated to The Finnegans Community Fund which disburses grants to help the working poor and at-risk youth throughout Minnesota.

Decent amber, very drinkable and clean. Lacks anything real distinguishing though.

Bottle pour into a glass at Target Field. Flat tasting beer - too watery and not enough punch.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Light amber pour with a medium white head. Aroma is dusty malt, toasty, caramel. Light fruity tones. Flavour is toasted malt, caramel . Touch on the thin side. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pkbites (857) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Aroma is of caramel, bakery, and a milk shake. Pour is amber orange with an off white head. The head dies soon but leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Bready flavor with hints of malted milk, caramel, and lightly hopped. The watery, soup bullion finish ruins the end. Not horrible, but could be better. ALERT: I PAID $2.99 FOR A SIX PACK AT A LIQUOR STORE LOCATED ON 60TH AND SILVER SPRING, MILWAUKEE! Not bad. Not a bad price at all. Shitty assed neighborhood, though. Pack a Glock.

Tap - fair sized foamy head, medium copper color, malty aroma and flavor, mild hops, pretty dry little kick to the finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is pretty bad. I picked it up in St.Paul and was surprised how stale it tasted. Unnecessarily sweet with a chemically aftertaste.

Nuffield (4020) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Quite malty and sweet, reminding me of a beer lollipop. The front is bready and caramelly, and the finish is simple and one-dimensional. This isn’t a fancy beer and if I didn’t know otherwise I would have said it was made with poor quality ingredients--somewhat adjuncty in its malty mid-palate. A bit fizzy, which is a relief to the palate. (On tap at a private event in St. Paul)

Aroma is caramel malts and an odd nutty character. The flavor is caramel malts, a small hint of hops and a tart finish.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber, no head, active carbonation. Malty aroma and flavor. Thin mouthfeel. Not horrible, but definitely forgettable.

deyholla (9821) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear a pale amber orange with very visible carbonation and a white head that dissipates and laces slightly. Aroma is thin with a decent amount of corn with a a bit of sweetness and hints of grass notes. Flavor is similarly thin with light grains and corn and a bit of grass.
