3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Misty’s at Silver Creek, WV The ale pours light amber with a white head. The aroma was of lightly roasted malt. The medium body ale had average carbonation. This was excellent to enjoy after skiing most of the morning. The roasted malt dominate the flavor and taste. The finish was dry with a pleasant closing.

Light amber/copper.Clear,nice short froth/lacing.
Has that classic irish ale aroma-kinda minerally/octoberfest like. Also getting some tartness,slight fruit,butter-dyacytal.light caramel maybe slight nuttyness.Light malt-bready.
Taste is like aroma but more vibrant and evident.Has some roast,also has a noticable light tartness to it. Mild bready..Some woody dry quality to it,possibly cherry also. Probably earthy. The tartness seems to get more intense as it warms further down the glass.

On tap at some crappy fake sports bar in WashPA. God, how many of these places do we have to endure? Soulless. Full of fake masculinity and cheap fast food. Now, we add to that mix a fake commitment to craft beer. Dozens of TVs blaring the Penguins game, feels like loneliness. Anyway, to the beer:
pours a deep copper color with a medium white head. A sweet clean caramel flavor, toast, some light fruit. Pretty good. Thankfully, because apparently the normal glass size is 32 ounces!

On tap at Kildare’s. Amber with a thin white head that retains. Aroma is toasted malt. Flavor is the same with some slight toasty bitterness. Very nice.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Mild toffee malt aroma. Amber with large light tan head. Sweet toffee malt initially but switches to a buttery ginseng/gentian root bitter finish. Not a fan of this combination of flavors. (Best by 4/24/13).

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent brownish-orange with sticky, foamy white head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes of roasted malt with some hop notes. Good on the palate. Not bad.

12 oz bottle into to pint glass. Awesome red/amber color with a 1.5 finger head that disappeared after a few sips. Lacing is not very evident. A very drinkable beer, fruity, hoppy taste comes out with a lively amount of carbonation aiding to a nice mouthfeel.
