This fine red ale is our tribute to the indomitable spirit of Grace O'Malley. Also called Granuaile or Grania of the Isles, in the 16th Century she captained the Pirate ship Greywolf II, carrying on the traditions of her father who sailed the ship Greywolf. She was elected chieftain of her people and received an offer from England's Queen Elizabeth I to be made a countess. In surprise, Grace asked how she could be made a countess when she was already a queen in her own right!

A not bad irish ale released near St. Pattie’s. Amber in color, thick and creamy. Some bread and caramel in the flavor and a bit of mellow hoppiness.

On tap at the brewery. Comes reddish orange with a nice biege head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and grain. Taste is malt, caramel, grain, a bit of smoke, and a bit of hops. Very enjoyable.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAR 22, 2013
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.

On tap @ Free State Brewery. A nice red color with a bubbly tan head. A light aroma of toasty malts with a bit of sweetness. The taste is sweet and malty with a nice buttery mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Malty. A heavy beer for it’s size. I’m getting some scottish taste to this, but not enough to turn me off. A nice seasonal to have in March.

boto (2103) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 26, 2008
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.

theisti (3901) - Kansas, USA - MAR 26, 2008
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!
