I have a weakness for the sweet edges of this thing and, in the words of my great uncle Pete, a notorious and delightful crumudgeon, ’I can out drink, out fight, and out dance any Irishman in the place’ that chides me for it.

Not much to this, but it’s better than most similar beers.

GPyott (67) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 17, 2002
A bit of a skunky aroma with browned amber coloring and a tan head. A decent Amber that is not watery per se, but has a very light flavored body. Produces a hoppy, dry finish that is thoroughly refreshing.

Alipius (2) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2002 does not count
What a mouth-feel! And it has a look you hope for; a flavour ’to-die-for’; and a sweet taste balanced with hops ’to remind you’. I love this liquid.

Definately a good beer. I was very impressed with the large head that lingered after I poured. What I liked most was the light carbonation.

WTF?!! I could have bought Killians Irish Red for the same shitty, corn filled taste and at least save a buck or two.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2007 Was always among my favorites, with a definite bite to it that I like in any ale. I don’t know why I haven’t had any of this lately. Easily beats out competitor Michael Shea’s Irish Amber.
