Old rate. Really a style that doesn’t fit anywhere. This one is maltier but still confusing.

Ughsmash (7154) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2006
Bottled. Poured a clear, lighter shade of orange with a semi-well-retained cap of creamy off-white head. Nose was quite pleasant, with toasty caramel, leafy/floral hoppage, nuttiness, and light fruits (maybe some pear). Sticky caramel, apples, pears, and a woodsy feel to the flavor... just a hint of citrus sourness... caramel and alcohol became a tad biting on the back of the palate as this warmed. Overall very drinkable and solid brew.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 19, 2004
Pours a clear copper bronze with a puffy off-white head. Aroma is mildy dry and caramely malty. Body has a nice caramel sweetness and lightly toasted sugary malt flavor. Finishes dry and grainy. A nice Irish ale. Thanks Drew!

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2008
A Mes rate: Bottle at Tom’s UGT Pt. 2.For some reason I didn’t write any notes for this one. I think you can tell from my numbers I wasn’t exactly enamoured with it...

deyholla (6713) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 13, 2013
Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a clear reddish amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a light grassy hop note with a bit biscuit and a good amount of sweet grains. Flavor is quite sweet with biscuit and sweet grains and not much of a hop profile.

phaleslu (6607) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2010
12 oz. bottle from Keller’s IGA. Pours a clear copper with an inch-thick beige head. Aroma of sweet and roasted malts, toast, caramel, cherry, apple, spice, and hops. Flavor is sweet caramel malts, cherry, apple, light hops, spice, and brown sugar. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, and crisp. Sweet, smooth, and simple. Nice beer.

DrSilverworm (6573) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 30, 2012
12oz bottle. Clear light red color, minimal white head, big bubbles. Crisp but a bit heavy carbonation. Very good with a toasted jimmy john’s sandwich, becomes much more enjoyable with a meal. Nice light spice, caramel, fruity taste. Light bitter. A decent Irish.

BVery (6559) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Tap. Clear brownish amber pour with a small white pour. Malty nose with mild caramel. Full mouthfeel. Taste is an odd malt and almost buttery. Caramel as well. Not crazy about this one.

Aroma mild aroma, slight hint of amber malt. Not much behind.
Appearance decent appearance. Medium plus carbonation, deep amber gold in colour. Good long lasting creamy top.
Flavor and Palate : Nutty, clean, oily body. Finishing nutty as well with solid malt base. Not overly sweet.

Pours copper with a tan head. Smells of caramel, earthy, some chewable vitamins. Tastes slightly tarte, sweet, rosey with an earthy finish.
