2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This clear amber lager has a nice creamy head, for about thirty seconds. The aroma is sweet, caramel and fresh grain. The taste isn’t bad, sweet, lightly toasted malts, but it’s quite thin, quite watery. Watery finish.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of grain and slight sweetness. Color is a beautiful red-brown. Small head, some lacing. Lots of bread, grain flavor. Not much finish. Distinct, but not distincly great.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours to a bright amber with thin off-white head and okay lacing. Caramel was slightly evident in both the aroma and the taste, moreso as it warmed. Palate was smooth. Not an outstanding beer, but a decent drink, especially for the price.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
The bottle poured a clear reddish-brown colored beverage with an average sized white frothy head that was mostly diminishing and left some lacing on the glass. The aroma was quite light, almost delicate. I could pick out a light presence of sweet apple against a background of caramel malt. There was also a note of light sweet yeast. The body was surprisingly more fully than expected rating a medium to light. This was accompanied by a soft carbonation and slightly creamy texture. The flavor started off lightly sweet showing off the caramel and apple. The finish was not very long in duration and had just a touch of bitterness to counter the sweet start.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Dark copper color with a diminished off-white head. Toasted wheat bread aromas with just a touch of mold. Dry caramel flavors with a unclean middle and finish. A chocolate and caramel bar that has been lying around far to long. Long acidic bitterness in the linger. Too fizzy in d weak in body.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear amber body with a generous white head. Sweet nose with honey and caramel present. Taste was similar but had a hoppy finish with a carbonated bite to it. Overly carbonated possibly? Rather full bodied once it warmed up. More flavors came out as it warmed, and it did not get better as it warmed. Better to start this one ice cold.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This light orange amber colored beer packed a lot of carbonation, and formed a three finger foamy head over 8 oz. of beer in the pint glass. It smells mostly of club soda like forced carbonation, and has little bit of honey on the nose too. It tasted very bland with a nondememo caramelized maltyness, and a strong bite of CO2. Noticeable hop bitterness was present in the aftertaste. Body was decently thick and mouthfeel creamy. An average amber ale all around.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
One of many beers for ST. Patricks, I definately had my share of these. I did do one for tasting first. Dark red amber color, like red tea. Thin head, but stayed longer than expected. Taste was sharp. More grain flavor than expected, very nice. Definately liked it better than Killians.

average carbonation, very light caramel in the flavor. Even halfway decent hops. Just an average Irish brew. I dunno, it’s not horrible by any means. Just doesn’t leave any impression.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A surprise find on the grocery store shelf. Nice lacing, but a weak head. Pretty dark tea color and nice bubble patterns. Malt flavors that balance out the touch of hops in the aftertaste. A good option that can be found in the aisles.
