Nice drinkable beer, Nothing special to be fair. But enjoyable and easy to drink. Nice sweet malts though a little watey. Expected something a little more.

Received in a trade from Hayduke. We shared a bottle via facebook chat. This beer was clear and coppery with a nice head. A rich malty nose that says Irish. A big malty flavor profile that is also grassy and swampy. Light fruit and nuts. Alcohol is also tasted and should not be. Some Graham crackers. Almost no carbonation. Nothing exciting here in a style that is rarely great.

Reddish amber. Nutty aromatics. Medium bodied, straightforward red ale. Nutty malts, but somewhat thin. Could use more hops to create some complexity. Medium finish.

Bottle. Transparent amber pour. Big tan head that recedes to half an inch. Aroma is a ton of caramel malt. Taste is caramel malt, a little alcohol, and some sourness. Medium body and carbonation.

This isn’t a bad trolley to be hit with, as it’s light enough to keep from squashing you flat. It tastes pretty good also, unlike that time when I was a kid and it was freezing outside and my brother told me the trolley pole tasted like caramel. At least I can taste the caramel in this one.

Draught from Disney California Adventure Park. A very deep bronzed copper colour with as all light tan head. Good flavour with plenty of caramel flavours with hints of butterscotch.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Full amber appearance with a ring of head. Mild grain nose, stale hops, tannic notes. Simple caramelized grain flavor with some twangyness where the grains meet the stale hops. Falls flat.
