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.

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.

Decent amber, very drinkable and clean. Lacks anything real distinguishing though.

Bottle pour into a glass at Target Field. Flat tasting beer - too watery and not enough punch.

Trev (1840) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Light amber pour with a medium white head. Aroma is dusty malt, toasty, caramel. Light fruity tones. Flavour is toasted malt, caramel . Touch on the thin side. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap - fair sized foamy head, medium copper color, malty aroma and flavor, mild hops, pretty dry little kick to the finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is pretty bad. I picked it up in St.Paul and was surprised how stale it tasted. Unnecessarily sweet with a chemically aftertaste.

Nuffield (3636) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Quite malty and sweet, reminding me of a beer lollipop. The front is bready and caramelly, and the finish is simple and one-dimensional. This isn’t a fancy beer and if I didn’t know otherwise I would have said it was made with poor quality ingredients--somewhat adjuncty in its malty mid-palate. A bit fizzy, which is a relief to the palate. (On tap at a private event in St. Paul)
