3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I cut my teeth on this beer, and itís always an easy one to come back to. A mild hop character rounds out a malty backbone to this pretty little amber. What is particularly Gaelic about this ale I am not sure, perhaps it comes from the lineage of the people who founded Asheville, but definitely not the brewery, which was founded by a gentleman with the last name Wong.

Pours a nice dark brown on tap with thick tan head and solid lacing. Smell is caramel and roasted malts. Taste is malty with a bit of bitter piney finish. Well balanced but leaves a dry, bitter mouth. Very good beer.

This is a deep amber brew with a small and brief head. The smell is citrus and tart hops, but thereís a tone in the aroma that I donít like. Kind of a dirty socks quality that I sometimes detect in brews that I think are a little too hoppy. The hops in the flavor are definitely strong, but itís actually not really too hoppy. Slightly dry, a bit thin, somewhat grassy. Nothing to write lovesongs about, but not bad.
