Tap @ Adams Mark Hotel - Buffalo: Dirty brown with a quickly fizzy head. Smoky, malty aroma. Earthy flavor. Buckwheat pancakes in a glass with a thin, sweet aftertaste.

Draught at a lacrosse game in Buffalo. I remember I enjoyed the game more than the beer. But I also remember thinking that this was a pretty good beer for a major sporting event. And I wrote down some numbers.

Bottle via UDBeernut the super-generous. Finally an Irish ale with an appropriate amount of body. Nose is all malt as is long luscious and full malt body. Yum. Barrel rolls and barnstorming tricks abound in ones life. This is a great relaxing time beer after all the storming is said and done.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pours deep red/amber with an off-white head. Aroma is yeast and buttered toffee backed up by some earthy hops. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of chocolate covered nuts and a slight herbal quality to it. Overall body is moderate and finishes with light bitterness. Definately
one of the oddest irish reds i’ve ever had.

I hope this bottle was old, it was the yeastiest beer I have ever had, What? this was unbelievable it had the largest head I have ever had, it filled the entire glass with foam. So ridculious this beer was nuts. It just tasted like yeast too, I think the yeast just took over and sucked the taste right out of this one. wouldnt recommend this one

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2011 Bottle. I’ve had this many times, both bottled and on tap. This got incredibly better once they re-opened the brewery. It used to be light, thin, and not very flavorful. Now, it’s deep, with a caramel sweetness and a smooth mouthfeel. ETA - another re-rate here. This beer is legit now.
