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.

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.

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 it’s much better on tap than in the bottle.

arminjewell (6176) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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.

Ughsmash (7136) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Bottled. Poured clear coppery-amber with a sticky cap of off-white head.. really nice lacing followed it down. The aroma picked up some really odd vegetal character (must’ve been the potatoes) upfront that never fully went away.. toasty pale malts and faint fruit supported light earthy and floral notes.. non-offensive, but non-good too. The flavor was along those same lines.. pale malts and honey at the core with dry herbal and vegetal hits around.. more honey and some sharp notes (carbonation and a little boozage) on the finish. Light-medium bodied with overly-assertive carbonation.. just not a good feel.

DalzAle (1984) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Bottle. Amber pour, plenty of carbonation and a stale leg party aroma. Flavor is light, malty and a little sweet. Not horrible, just not my thing.

vikingguy (806) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - AUG 28, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2010 Golden color, with small white head. Aroma is sweet metallic malt with some grassy, grainy notes. Taste is sweet malt, notes of caramel & roasted malt. Thin mouthfeel. Pretty good but not great.

Poured amber in color. Grainy aroma. Very thin. Lightly hopped with notes of roast malt and caramel. Not much there.

TAP: pours a clear amber, aroma is slightly malty. Taste is caramel, light hops, and lemon. Decent beer.

One of my choices for Super Bowl Sunday- it was ok at best. Overall, i would Summit beers are decent tasting. This beer poured a clear light amber colour with a small white head. Soft noticeable peat malt and hops on the nose. Perhaps a little milk maybe too? Potatoes are suprisingly noticeable. Taste is pretty soft a little light in the finish perhaps.
