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.

Ughsmash (7502) - 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.

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...

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.

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

TheAlum (6812) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Poured on tap at The Galway Tribes (Frankfort, IL). Pours a deep dark auburn hue with notes of dark red throughout with a small white head that quickly subsides. Aromas are largely malty, toasted malts and caramel break through with a minor hop presence. Initial is largely caramel malt sweetness. Taste moves to a slight hoppiness that is still smothered by the caramel malt. Not very complex as any complexity that may have existed is humped into submission by the toasted caramel malts. Finishes smooth and leaves the aftertaste ever present on the palate. Decent.. not something I’d necessarily go out of my way to try again though.

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