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.

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.

Draft at Kipís, St. Louis Park, MN. Summit did something that isnít a hop-monster -- knock me over with a feather. In fact, this is a malt-monster with nice balance - a slightly-bitter finish. Very drinkable. Summit, you made a beer I want to drink... Wow.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 20, 2006
Draught at Kieranís Irish Pub in Minneapolis, MN. 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.

GaltScat (195) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2007
Malt, hops, and starch fill the aroma and taste. A very mild bitterness mixes with a nice malt throughout the travel in the mouth. The flavor also has a nice smoothness and taste from the potatoes.

Refreshing and tasty, if a bit light. It lacks the unpleasant bitterness I usually associate with Summitís brews. On draft at Old Chicago in Eagan, 3/7/07.

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

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

badgerben (4385) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2004
Pours a dark amber color with little head. It has a malty nose and taste, with something I can only describe as musty as well. Also some Grape Nuts flavoring. Not terrible.

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.
