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.

WisconsinBeer (705) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 14, 2008
On tap at Groveland Tap St Paul MN. Clear deep orange color, minimal to no head. Mild and fizzy to begin, rolls into a sort of dry potato starchiness. Finish is soft and mild. Light bodied. Something different, I really dig this beer.

theisti (3241) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - NOV 19, 2008
Pint draft at Kips in St Louis Park, MN. Pour is clear orange reddish golden with not much head. Aroma of some sweet maltiness, a touch of grass. Taste is the maltiness, some chemical flavor that is a bit off putting. Palate is thinnish, quick clean finish. Not offensive, just not too much going on. Appreciate the social aim of the brewery.

Tripplebrew (777) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2008
Pours a clear amber with very thin white head. Aroma is very light malts, but not too much beyond that. Flavor is light matls/hops. hints of citrus. Light body.

punkeedo (498) - Covington, Louisiana, USA - SEP 26, 2008
This is one of the more interesting beers that I’ve recently had. Aroma of malt liquor--unassuming and light. Appears dark amber with very little head. Tastes of malt and lemons with a light hops aftertaste. Very nice brew--enjoyable and worth visiting again.

mistersinalin (381) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Okay, an irish ale brewed in St. Paul should be better, but when you’re at an event or hockey game at the Xcel Center, this is great compared to the standard Bud/Miller offerings. It has less body than I woul want and leaves a bit of a dirty aftertaste.

pepsican (1445) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JUL 5, 2008
red pour with a small white head. Malty aroma. Flavor is also plenty of caramel malts. I swear I get potatoes too. Finishes watery. Not bad.

Shag (2606) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 30, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2008 A copper color with a white head. The aroma is caramel and sweet potatoes. The flavor has a veggie presence with some caramel and dark fruit. According to my rating notes not in my hand writing....... Cheri has big tits.

iowaherkeye (2691) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - MAY 24, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2008 12oz bottle, no date thanks to Eric (heemer77). Clear amber golden with a small off-white head that faded to a thin ring after about 10 seconds with no film. Aroma has some toasted grain and a bit of caramel. There is also the rubber from the top of the screw on growler caps--that bead of rubber, and a tinge of pear skin. Flavor has some corn and toasted grain with a bit of nondescript fruity tang. Toasty finish with minimal hop bitterness. Lifeless body, save for the faintest tingle of carbonation that leaves the body a fair amount heavier than it actually is. Not any good.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Bottled. The body is dark amber with a lightly off white head. The aroma has some apples and caramel. There is also some light citrus. The taste is bitter orange peels with some nice black pepper spice in the finish. There is also a little bit of root vegetable character. The body is highly carbonated. A little strange.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 20, 2008
Light copper color with a fizzy diminsihed... "damn" the heads gone already, so I donít know what color it was, but is wasnít white, so something darker and not quite white head. Wait, if it is gone before I got a good look at it was it ever really ever there? To be honest, one of the more worthless heads I have ever encountered. It still gets a two because the liquid still looks good, but Iím thinking the body is going to suffer. Caramel and corn soup aromas. Not bad, but not clean and very amber like. Actually the palate is quite light and with a nearly not as much fizz as I would have expected. Flavors of lightly toasted grain, touch of dark corn syrup and floral hops. I donít find much that is Irish in this one. Generic sweetness in the finish and linger.
