Appearance: fairly textbook; reddish amber; low off-white head Aroma: lacks intensity but the expected aromas are present: moderate malt, slightly toasty caramel, possibly with a touch of butter Flavor: has a toastiness, also caramel malt and a bread or popcorn note; pretty appetizing Mouthfeel: medium-light body; mild carbonation; quite smooth texture; enjoyable

It’s a typical Irish ale with not much flavor good head and a slightly bitter aftertaste. Nothing to write home about but not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Bestway. Pour: Nice tawny, copper brown hue. No real foam or head. Little carbonation. Aroma: Nutty with biscuit-like notes. Taste: Nutty, toffee flavors combine well. Solid medium body. Overall: Enjoyable brew. Irish-style ales are not my thing, but I enjoyed this beer. Imbibed for the experience.

Medium amber with nice balance. A bit bready and could use more complexity in the malt for my tastes but drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice red color, not a lot of head. Nice, fruity aroma, with a strong yeast flavor. Finished clean.

I think i rated this beer as high as i could for a style of beer that really doesn’t knock me out....but these guys really consistently brew up excellent product. clean, tilted toward malty, but with a perfect amount of bitterness to balance it nicely. every flavor shines through. the best irish style ale i’ve ever had.

Nice Carmel color--head a bit small. Enjoy the taste--reminds me of an Oktoberfest. Malty and nutty with a slight dark fruit taste. Good overall

The local IGA isn’t normally a place one discovers a new great beer. Lo and behold, miracle’s never cease. There nestled next to 8 month old 6 packs of Corona & Zima (dust everywhere I tell ya) was this little gem. Malty, hoppy, and only 6 blocks away!! This is officially the best beer (aside from the stuff I and my fellow homebrewers brew ourselves) within a one mile radius of my home!!! Now, as long as my buddies don’t discover the find, I’ll be all set!!

I’ve only had this bottled, but I live close enough to the brewery to go try some on tap and the bottled version is good enough that I plan to do that soon. Dark amber pour, nice head, lovely clean taste. Reminds me of Smithwyck’s, only better, in my opinion.

Bottle from Premier Gourmet. This was a surprisingly light Irish ale. The beer poured a light ruby red with a thick white head. The smell and the taste had a good deal of citrus present as well as some caramel and roasted notes. A very fresh feel. Very drinkable and satisfying.
