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.

Normally I donít like this style of beer too much, but this one took me by surprise a little on the first sip. Pours golden amber (like on the bottle haha) small amount of head that disappears very soon. This one is crisp and refreshing. Itís more a summertime beer, not sure why I grabbed this one other than it looked interesting. Nice use of hops, the biggest downside of this beer is it is too yeasty tasting.

On tap. Amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt with just a hint of hops. Tastes sweet, pretty thin. Potatoes? Not much going on.

A: The pour is a light amber color with a fluffy off-white head. S: A pretty light and unimpressive nose overall with some light notes of grain and caramel. T: Light in flavor as well with a strong adjunct character. Almost like glorified Budweiser, showing plenty of corn and grain. M: Fitting in with the rest of the beer, the body is quite light and overly carbonated and fzzy. D: Not a fan of this one at all. This was enough of an experience with this beer.

Amber and orange clear as day and bright as the sun smile back at me while a pithy white head fades into a splotchy blanket. There are random splashes of lace which pay no mind to a nose of toffee crunchies, melba toast, and harvested grains. Honey drifts by while lemon and apple skins vie for my attention. Brisk, crunchy, and light, she doesnít lack where it matters most: aroma and, as I am about to discover, flavor. Light and sweet, a subtle layer of honey coats my lips and never leaves. As each quaff glides across my tongue, lemon, apple skins, and sun-dried grains gather in the middle and never leave. A clean start and finish, as her flavors tease my tastebuds, bitter dryness gently preps me for each coming quaff. More honey flitters through the finish along with toffee and caramel crunchies. Light and sessionable, there is enough for me to savor but not so much that I canít just vegge and drink.

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2010
Pours a clear amber with a medium, fluffy white head. Weak aroma of malt and grain. Flavor is malty with hints of grain, caramel, earthiness, and mild hops. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Nothing special at all.

Smells kind of rotten and moldy, but it is beer from potatoes. Irish ale brewed in Minnesota by the descendants of Swedes.

unclemike (2871) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 11, 2010
On tap at Tony Romas at Mall of America Clear light amber color with thin white head that left some lace on the glass. Attractive malty caramel aroma and flavor with an almost buttery flavor at the end. Slightly sweet on the tongue. Very good beer on tap.

mcjay (463) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Transparent golden amber color with a medium white head. Mild hop aroma. Taste is malty and grainy with a hoppy bitterness. A nice brew but itís much better on tap than in the bottle.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Pours amber with white head, aroma is where the potato comes through with some caramel malt. Taste is slightly hoppy up front, then goes into the caramel malt and the potato dulls it out in the finish. Pretty good for mass produced beer.

bonk0076 (99) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 8, 2009
Pours a clear, slightly amber color with a moderate white head. Aroma consists of slight pine notes, potatoes, and molasses. Taste is dominated by the mellow malts, but balanced with hop bitterness slightly. Not balance quite well enough between the two in my opinion.
