Crisp dark orange color with a tight white head. There’s nothing overpowering in this, and that’s why I like it. It just tastes good! If you really want to search for flavors, you’ll get some bread, a little bit of roast, maybe a hint of apple (but not sour) at the end. Simple, but very good.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2012 Pretty amber/red appearance, good mouth, definite malt with hint of fruit, not typically a GL fan but this is a pretty good beer.

Bottle. Red/orange pour with off white head. Smells if very sweet malts and caramel. Tastes of caramel and toffee with very slight hop bitterness. Very nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours redish brown with a noce head. Nose is very malty with some fruit. Taste was loaded with malt and a nice hop note. One of the best irish ales i have ever had.

Rating #333, that’s halfway to the sign of the antichrist. Scary. I’ve also had a lot to drink. Clear amber color, solid white head. Aroma of bread dough and wet socks, but in a good way. Taste is like Ovaltine on rye bread. Tasty.

The body has light amber honey color with very good clarity. On top it forms a big creamy off white colored head. The head slowly fades but hangs on well and make cool rings of lace on the glass. The aroma is mostly sweet with hints of lightly roasted grains, bready yeast, light hops and some mild fruit notes. Its flavor has a good solid medium body with a sweet malty character that is tempered with just enough leafy hops for some balance. There are notes of bread, light caramel malt, orange marmalade and mild hops. The palate is smooth, slightly slick and easy drinking with mellow carbonation.
