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.

Aroma is of caramel, bakery, and a milk shake. Pour is amber orange with an off white head. The head dies soon but leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Bready flavor with hints of malted milk, caramel, and lightly hopped. The watery, soup bullion finish ruins the end. Not horrible, but could be better. ALERT: I PAID $2.99 FOR A SIX PACK AT A LIQUOR STORE LOCATED ON 60TH AND SILVER SPRING, MILWAUKEE! Not bad. Not a bad price at all. Shitty assed neighborhood, though. Pack a Glock.

This actually isn’t too bad. Not much there in the aroma department. Appearance has a long lasting thick head. Flavor’s the highlight with a nice, slightly toasty malt, a bit sweet, toffee, caramel, just enough bitter and tang to balance. Very drinkable. Pleasant finish.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, amber, nice off white head but no real lacing. Aroma of malts, caramel and some citrus notes. Taste is sweet and malty, some grain notes and some spices. Not bad, but certainly not great.

ccex (1185) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2015
12 oz. bottle from my long lost cousin in Rochester, MN. Pours a light amber brown color with decent off-white head. Aroma is bread, nuts, and roasted grains, Taste is slightly sweet with some bittterness in the finish. Body is light to medium with a smooth mouthfeel and not too much carbonation. Exactly what I was hoping to find: something pleasant and sessionable with enough character to keep things interesting,

I’ve always enjoyed these when I’ve had them. Not something I search out but a solid easy drinker and profits go to a good cause. Null

jmohno (1505) - Iowa, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Dark gold. Light head quickly receding. Aroma of dry caramel malt and citrus,lemon maybe orange or slight grapefruit. Taste is mild dry light caramel, tart lemon/ slight ornage, citrus bite. Bitter rhind finish. clean light dry. Not bad. Mild style but pretty spot on irish amber. Has a bit of bile rancid taste at times as it warms old hops? from the yeast?.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle, brought back from Minneapolis, thank you Björn! Has a malty, amber aroma. Has a crisp taste with a slight bitterness from hops.

Bottle, pours amber with a white head, has a light malt aroma, light malt taste, slight bitter finish, a bit thin and nothing really stands out about this one.

Just what I was looking for. A light weight Amber with a nice smooth finish. Plus Brewing company donates profits to food shelf and runs a food collection truck.

Love that the profits from this beer/brewer go to feeding the hungry. This is also a very drinkable amber.

Tap. Dark amber. Malty aroma. Has dry hop character, but smooth to drink. Good beer and good cause.
