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.

12 oz. bottle into Duvel tulip. Obtained in the 2004 Secret Santa from Suttree. Imagine the smell of an afternoon walk on the western Irish countrysides, as the farmers cut the peat and the sod and freshly baked bread wafts from the window of your dirt-walled hutment. Now imagine that scaled back about 80% and emanating from a beer glass. In otherwords, the aroma of this beer is like the pale shade of some earthy dopeness that died long ago. Amber orange and mostly clear in the glass with not much beige head. Hops and malt are well-balanced in the flavor, as advertised, but the hop character is weird. Oxidized? Some mutant variety? Who can say? Itís biting morphing into tangy, but in a way Iíve never experienced. Medium to full body. Gets metallic in the finish. Blah.

Had this on tap. Copper color with a thin head. Moderate carbonation. Mildly sweet, malty aroma and flavor with caramel overtones. Not much hop flavor or bitterness.

22oz bomber - Via trade with Bluedevil0206 - Thanks James - When I first got this I wondered who puts an amber ale in 22oz bombers? Pours deep amber in color with a healthy creamy offwhite head. Aroma is a nice mix of cascade hops and caramel malts but the hops seem to dominate the aroma. Flavor is more malty but well balanced with the bitterness of the hops. On the palate this is smooth and very balanced. After drinking one and seeing how easy it was to drink I know now why they put it in bombers.

Very pleasantly surprised. Not sure why, but the gaelic bit had me worried. thought it might wind uop some odd, sweet mix and match of flavors. Nice, full and lasting head, sweet, full malt body and very good bittering. Not making me jump out of my sox, but definitely putting a smile on my face as it quickly disappears.

I got this one at Chips in the Outer Banks. It had a reddish color and I sensed a caramel-flavored malty high end along with a soft dry finish. The maltiness is a strong point with me but its not hoppy enough for my particular pallate.

Copper pumpkin color. Carbonation is steady. A smooth, firm, evenly placed, dark beige cap of medium stoutness is roofing it. Great retention too. Keeps a generous whipped foamy coating the entire glass through. Sporatic sticky thickly set lacing in flimsy sheeting. Pleasantly clean but fairly subdued aroma of earthy woody hops with a brisk under sweeping of husky toasty malts. Very light fruity hints emerge as it warms. Nice little taster here. Toasty with a rounded out fruity nudge of malts. Mild hoppy finish with leafy earthen hop tea noting off into a fluffy spicy drying aspect and gradual fade into a return of red apple skin fruityness. Extremely light citrus Crisp and bold medium feel with a smooth carbonation and flow. Good subtle flavors, tones, and dryness makes for some fine drinkiní. A pretty solid red ale, which are few and far betwwen.
