Pours a translucent amber with a large foamy very light tan lacing head. Aroma of nuts, toffee and toasted cereal grains. Flavor really showcases a nice fresh lightly toasted cereal grain maltiness, some toffee and light caramel notes.

Draught @ Brewpub: Interesting pour. It has a bit of the Guinness-like cascade going on with it. It pours a coppery-amber color, which ended up being almost clear. Needless to say, it ended up with a decent size off-white head that leaves some lacing. There is a hint of roastiness to the nose. Earthy, grassy hops predominate the aroma, with some caramel also. It has a decent malt body, with a slightly dry taste. Very little sweetness to it. This is a very good beer!

Growler shared with theisti. Pours reddish-brown with a thin skin of off-white head. On the nose are: caramel, flowers and a faint peat note in the background. Light to medium-bodied and slick with a clean, lightly dry finish. This one tastes like a blend of about two-thirds Irish ale (caramel malt base) and one-third Scottish ale (peaty smoked malt). This is a solid and tasty session beer.

Growler generously shared by Gregis. Pour is clear orange amber with an off white 1 inch head. Some pretty lacing on the glass. Aroma of malty, earthy, floral hop with some distant sweetness - brown sugar. Taste has the smokiness from the nose, but none of the sweetness. Some bitter, almost ear waxy hoppiness to the body / finish. This was interesting, nicely made. Thanks for bringing this one over, Greg!

From a growler. Pour deep garnet red with a rich light tan head. Yeast drived fruity esters, biscuity and caramel malts in the nose. Big biscuit and caramel malt flavor with some berry like yeast flavors. You can taste a little bit of roasted barley. Mellow bitterness. Fuller body. Avarage carbonation. This is exactly what I want in an Irish ale. Thanks to csbosox for picking this up for me.
