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.

Pouts a light golden color with a light spiced scent. The taste is slightly copper and it's a decent crisp beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle pours a hazy copper/orange with a small white head. Aroma of caramel malts, tobacco, and citrus. Taste of caramel, nuts, crisp. By no means amazing but enjoyable. I’ve enjoyed this one many times out and about. Sessionable and hey it feels good to drink for a cause.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2011 Bottle. Pours with a slight head. Good but rather blah. Refreshing but not spectacular.

A pretty normal irish ale, nothing particularly fancy about it. Cheers!

On tap in Minneapolis. Not too bad. Kind of malty but rather characterless overall.

Finnegans has an aroma of yeast and grassy hops and malt. On sipping, I get a very strong taste of barley and malt. There’s a rather savory taste as well, and slightly sweet. This is a decent beer, probably good for people who like lagers but want to move onto ales, and want a good transition beer.
