2/25/13. 12oz bottle thanks to Tibeerious and aobecksy! Thanks for the tick! Clear amber red pour with a light khaki head that fades to a ring but sticks. Mild lacing. Light caramel with a hint of chocolate and bread in the aroma. Mild malty flavor as well with caramel and bread, a hint of chocolate, and just a dose of hop character to dry the finish a touch. Refreshing and tasty.

Ughsmash (7508) - 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.

Simple but easy to drink. Pours amber with decent head and lacing. Light barley bitterness and some tin. Crisp finish. Easy to drink.

blankboy (7171) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev & Dave B. -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a clear amber-orange with a spare diminishing off-white head. Aroma and flavour of caramel malt and not much else -- a hint of yeast, fruit and hops in there. It’s good but I like more hops and less caramel in my Ales.

Draft at Churchkey. Poured a dark amber color with a small, off-white head. Aroma was some grain notes, slight roasted notes, with some caramel notes. Flavor was pretty malty, with some caramel, and some roast notes. Okay.

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!

Flavor and Palate : Nutty, clean, oily body. Finishing nutty as well with solid malt base. Not overly sweet.

Bottle. Pretty good Irish Ale. Not usually a big fan as they are usually pretty average styled beers. This is one of the better though. Amber pour with malty bready aroma. Fits the style & thats all you can ask for
