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.

This stuff is made frompotatoes, and when I heard the proceeds go to fight LUPUS, i knew it was good!! This is avaiable on tap in quite a few places in st paul, since its bottled here. A real tasty amber brew, no bones about it.

Nice copper color. Says itís brewed with potatoes but I canít taste any in there. Mainly a standard balance of malt and hops, mainly towards the malt. Somewhat thin body. Strange that itís classified in this category; I donít think think potatoes are classified as vegetables -- rather, they are tubers.

2004 ABR. The guy at the Finneganís booth swore up and down that this is a different beer than the one originally brewed by James Page, called Finneganís Irish Ale. Curious that both are made with potatoes and the proceeds from both go toward the Spud society. Regardless, I rated the earlier Finneganís awhile back and that was noticeably better than this one, so Iím guessing they deserve to be considered separately. Faint, apple cider aroma. Small, off-white head. Leaves a little bit of lace, but really isnít overly attractive. Amber in color. No visible carbonation. Somewhat lively mouthfeel, but not too pleasant. Has an apple ciderish mouthfeel. Some off notes. Undercarbonated.

I have no idea why this is classified as spice/herb/vegetable. This is a standard amber beer in the class of Killians, but not quite that good. Light red in color. Some malt in the flavor. Thin.

Picked this up at the Space Alien Grill and Bar in St Cloud - cool place built for kids but they also sell beer - so canít be all that bad! Has a light copper appearance with a thin white head; faint caramel aroma with some fresh lake water aroma as well. Flavor of sweet caramel and toffee; not much of a hop presence. Has a tad bit of a metallic mouthfeel and is slightly thin. Overall a decent change of pace.

muzzlehatch (4840) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2004
12 oz bottle, from Blue Max in Minneapolis. Very clear medium amber, lost of bubbling, smallish head. Typical malty-sweet amber ale nose with just a hint of smokiness and hops. Potatos? Not sure I get them. Predominantly sweet front, drying slightly hoppy and herbal finish...a bit thin, somewhat bland.

Dark Amber Coloring. Little Head. A little malt. Not too sure what to think...not my favorite Irish beer.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2004
Clear light amber with a medium diminishing off white head. Aroma of caramel, bread, pepper, a hint of citrus, and yes, potato. Medium watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Flavor of caramel, bread, potato, and spice with a slight fruity twang in the finish. The potato part is novel. Itís not very good, but it also isnít too bad. Decent.
