Loved the color. A very good representation of the style I think, not too sweet of a caramel note and a restrained earthiness as well.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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!

(Tap at brewery) Pours a deep amber body with a small white head. Aroma of caramel and malt. Flavor of malts, fruit, and caramel. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

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.

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.

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.

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.
