UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 I would say, this is definitely a good weekend treat. It is a tad overpriced in this country, but it definitely goes down smooth and very flavorful. Love the roasted malt flavor and is definitely a great beer from a macro brewery. The only thing I find unpleasant about this brew, is the metallic odor that is noticed prior to tasting, but it thankfully does not translate to the actual flavour itself.

Without a doubt the finest foam I have ever come across. The foaming violently during pouring, but rapidly accumulating to a nice reddish ale with persistent white foam on top. The aroma is malty, albeit limited. It tastes fine of hops, malt and some fruit and have a sensible hoppy bitterness. I miss a little more fullness and bitterness with longer duration are also preferable. Otherwise, a good average ale can be used for virtually anything.

A classic Irish. Lovely appearance with its creamy head. Aroma of not much more than a pint in a pub, but smooth in his mild bitterness. Always welcome in an Irish pub!

Koskela (388) - Marysville, California, USA - JUN 14, 2015
A sweet malty almost raspberry aroma come from this clear deep ruby red brew with a finger of creamy white head. A nice roasted malt flavor sweetness,low carb and smooth flavor and mouthfeel are highlighted from this medium bodied beer. It is very typical of an Irish brew.

Buona birra, che si presenta bene. Al palato ha un gusto molto cremoso, piacevole quindi da bere.
