3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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!

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...

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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!
