3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fresh growler courtesy of phillybeer2112. Pours brown with a fair thin head that takes a while to subside. Smells of tealike hops, roses, caramel and some spice. Tastes of spice, rich malt, some coffee hints and nutty. Mouthfeel is thin and semi-sweet. Finish is tangy with hints of sweet malt. This is a well balanced very sessionable ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2005 Thin head with a beautiful red body. The aroma is malty and smoky with some corn. Also hints of grass. The taste is mild with grass and some tobacco. A decent version of the style. Would make for a decent session beer.

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.

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!

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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2006 Pretty tasty interpretation of the Irish Ale. Garnet color and nice malty smoothness, but still somewhat light-bodied and not bitter in any way. Great for early springtime, straight from the tap handle or growler!

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!
