3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Sampled at the NY Brewfest on Governorís Island, 6/19/10
Aroma: The nose has some caramel, toffee, toast, yeast, and a bit of spice
Appearance: This is an amber-brown colored beer with a small tan head
Flavor: The taste is fairly malty, somewhat sweet, lots of caramel, and a bit of spice
Palate: It has a light-medium body, fairly sessionable, and drinks pretty nicely
A halfway decent Irish Ale. Nothing overly special, but a solid example of the style in my opinion. Overall, I thought the beers I tried from this brewery at the festival were pretty good, and I look forward to getting a hold of some more of their stuff in the future.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 Sampled at the Long Ireland tent at Brewfest NYC 2010 on Gov Island. A solid irish ale with some decent flavor that shows promise for sessionability. Super light hop thatís pretty much dominated by a clean sweet malt character.

Draft sample at NY Brew Fest 2010. Pours amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of cinnamon, sweet malts, and bready/yeasty notes. Thin bodied with a sweet, soft palate. Average Irish ale. I concur with Pwn3d. The standard Long Ireland Pale Ale was much better.

Sampled during Brew Fest 2010 on Governorís Island. I didnít like this as much as the Pale Ale, which I canít find on RB. This was much more mellow, with some nice honey notes. Good brewery description, not your traditional Irish Red.

The aroma is honey, caramel, nuts. The appearance is a red/gold color, more gold, white head. The flavor is toasted malt, caramel. The finish is a vague noble hop bitterness. Medium bodied. Not bad.
