A deep amber colored American ale, featuring a rich malty body. Cascade and Willamette hops add a complex hop flavor and aroma. This ale is exceptionally balanced between malty sweetness and delicate hop bitterness.

I got this on a trip to North Carolina. Rating based on bottle, thougjh I had it on draft there as well. Coppery in color, with a decent head that fades in little time. Aroma is malty and a bit metallic and alcoholic. Flavor fruity and malty at first, but the hops quickly overwhelm everything else. One question: why is this called Gaelic ale? I though Gaelic was a language.

12oz bottle-pours a light tan head with copper color. Aroma is a good balance of malt & hops. Taste follows with a hops finishing with a bite. Good carbonation.

Pours amber with a thin light tan head. Aroma is bready, lightly sweet and malty, with aromatic toasted malts and a very subtle hint of pine. This beer tastes almost like a malty, bready German lager, with well balanced herbal hoppiness. Very neutral ale yeast playing little role in the taste. Mouthfeel is medium/full bodied with moderate carbonation. This is a great beer from one of my favorite cities.

Another one of my favorite beers. Great malty smoothness and just the right bitterness. A light smokiness to go along with the malt and hops.

Kevin (2192) - New Mexico, USA - MAY 25, 2006
Clearish gold hued brown. Above average off white head. Aroma is maltcentric with light cocoa and a bit of something close to caramel with a sweet tart quality to it. Definitely some chocolate in the flavor. A not quite woody, not quite earthy, not quite citrus flavor. A Popsicle stick feel that I don’t like. This doesn’t do much for me 4 4 4 3 9

Delirium (657) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2006
Bottle. Pours dark, clear copper with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is mostly of flowery hops, with a bit of malt. Flavor is much more malty, somewhat but not overly sweet, with bittering hops in the background. Medium-bodied with a dry finish. Very well balanced. Easily drinkable anytime, but an especially good springtime ale.

notalush (5732) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2006
Copper/amber in color with a kind of "from the cask," bubbly head - the aroma and flavor have the biscuity, bready notes and medium woody hop qualities I find most often in english bitters - medium bodied - very smooth and balanced - a nice brew for the spring.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2006
Dark, crystal clear copper/orange body. The aroma is nearly nonexistant, though...possibly I detect some sugar, malts and an earthiness. The flavor is also nearly as light. Many more malts here, with a slight sprinking of hops, but its a decent amber ale all around.

shrubber85 (10760) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 24, 2006
Bottle. Sweet apple-cherry malt aroma. Reddish amber color with small head. Lightly sweet apple cider and malt flavor with a touch of lemon and mild hops finish. Nicely drinkable.
