12 oz. bottle. Pours a light amber color with a medium rocky off white head. The aroma is lightly roasted malt, some caramel, and mildly earthy. The flavor is moderately sweet malt, light roast, light caramel, bready, with some earthy hops. Medium bodied. A decent, but middle of the road kind of beer.

blipp (6722) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - FEB 26, 2009
Bottle. Pours orange amber with a beige head. Sweet aroma, toasty as well, with a light hop presence. The flavor is well balanced with toasty caramel malt and some nice earthy hop notes. Pretty good.

drowland (6673) - Georgia, USA - FEB 25, 2013
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.

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.

blankboy (6444) - 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.

b3shine (6400) - Indiana, USA - MAR 1, 2013
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.

BBB63 (6396) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 12, 2003
Reddish tint, small head, no lacing, tint to medium-bodied. Light and tart fruity aroma. Butterscotch, apple, hint of wood on the palate. As it warmed up, a malty sweetness became present. Very good balance. Slighty fizzy mouthfeel. Lingering bitter hops. Recommended but more like an English pale or a Belgium Abbey Single than a Irish Ale.

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

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 27, 2005
Bottle: Amber, mediocre foamy off-white head, sparce lacing, strong carbonation.   Grainy nose, subtle roasted malts.   Underlying sweet malt background, emergence of graininess half way through but subsides quickly.   Moderate mouthfeel and body.   Minor hop note & soft pale fruit at the finish.   Clean and smooth.   Seems more of an Amber than an Irish/Red Ale.   Thanks Matt D!

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy, tupalev and Dave B - my bottle via trade with Sammy. Amber-orange with a decent off-white diminishing head. Aroma of orange pekoe tea, light roast malt, dry floral hops, lightly sweet. Taste of wheat, sweet light roast malt, dry floral hops and tea again - pleasant. Soft average body, dry, lightly astringent mouthfeel, quick finish, very nice.
