3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2007 Comments refer to bottled version. Also, beer I had was called DANNY’s Irish Style Red Ale, NOT Paddy’s.
Upon opening cap, a gush of frothy white foam issued forth, running down the sides and making a good-sized mess on my counter. It did settle into the glass eventually as a dark amber fluid with a thin skin of long-lasting light tan foam covering the surface.
Brown sugar and/or molasses greeted my nose upon opening, but the aroma faded fast. Subsequent sniffs provided a sublte aroma of smoky leather. Silky mouthfeel promises good things to come, and initial malt flavor seems to follow through. That is, until the metallic tang kicks in. That flaw seemed to fade as the glass of beer warmed up a bit, disappearing in favor of a barely-astringent malty flavor to linger in the mouth a bit after swallowing. For a beer relatively low in alcohol, there is still a bit of warmth to be felt. Hops are in the background and only tasted as the beer slides down the back of the tongue on its way to a happy belly. A malty, somewhat sweet beer.

Sweet burnt caramel notes, kinda cloying flavor. Much sweeter than I like, but I’ll finish the bottle.

Sample @ Wine Gallery, Boston, MA, 9/06. Pours red with a small brown head. Aroma is largely malt. Taste is malt, with heavy carbonation characteristics and a bit of caramel and rye as well. I liked this.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - 22oz. Mine was called "Danny’s Irish ..." Really boring ale. Very interesting malt body, a mix uncommon to most things I drink. That being said, its a boring complex kind of thin and very watery. The malt does have nice flavor but is really not supported by anything else and does not stand well on it own. A little sour as well.

Hazy orange coloured with an off white head.
Aroma of malts, caramel and fruits,
Fruity flavour with acidic notes.
Unpleasant and boring.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Average fizzy off-white head that mostly diminished. Fair lacework. Clear flat body with an amber color. Aroma of caramel, herbs, fruit and citrus... Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Flavor was light sweet and bitter with hint of acidic. Light dry and bitter finish.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle 65 cl) Hazy, amber golden with a small, off-white head. Lightly tart, caramelish nose. Medium body, some caramel and some odd bonbon-like notes. Has a vague, underlying acidity. The finish is dry. I reckon this is slightly infected. 160607

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber in color with nice frothy head, that is gone quick. Nose of malt. Flavor is malty also with a hint of grain. Body was medium. Rather a oh well ale. Not a lot exciting going on here.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Like the Lazy Boy IPA before it, somewhat dark copper in color, moderate off-white foamy head, fairly nice lacing, no
noticeable carbonation.   Nose of musty/grainy malts, soft tho, along with some earth and straw/hay.   Toasted biscuity malt start,
semi-sweet, low hope profile, not as earthy grainy as I would have thought based on the nose.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.
Finish is a somewhat cerealy semi-sweet lightly roasted malts.   Meh... not bad but not all that interesting either.   I shoulda had
this with some food or something.
