2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear amber with a small beige head. Feint aroma of cereal malts, syrup and light caramel / toffee. Flavour of raisins and other such dried fruits, toffee / caramel, male syrup and some bready malts. Finished syrupy and fruity. Low-to-medium complexity. Easy to drink, but nothing extraordinary. Fine for what it is.

Pint – Disneyland California Adventure – Anaheim, CA
This was cold and wet and what I needed. It had been a few dry days. The beer was malty with a decent amount of hops but the beer was buttery and sort of flat. I was not happy with paying 7 bucks for a pint.

Brought by Tipsy to the tasting. Looks like a red ale. Almost no head. Almost no aroma. Some vanilla in the flavour. Lots of toast. Actuallly a touch better than expected.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear amber coloured body with a small white head. Aroma of vinegar and malt mixed with some soap. Light to medium-bodied; Spicey flavour with some light spices and malt present. Hardly and hops-nothing crazy. Aftertaste clean and malty-nothing else. Overall, a decent amber-not great nor horrible. I sampled this draught beer from Terminal 7 at LAX on 31-May-2004.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells malty with a hint of caramel. This has a bit more hops from the start than the first three of the sampler. Some light caramel that sticks to the front of your gums. Decent stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Not very good at all, I would not buy this. Sweet caramel malt, small amount of hops. Fairly easy to drink, it just doesn’t taste good though. I would not get this unless it was free.
