3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Not much aroma, but nice dark color with head and lacing to boot. Smoother mouth feel than Guinness, lighter body, toasty, malt...nice balance...finished sweet for me.

Not very good at all. My friend pretended to like it so he could seem knowledgeable about beer. Don't waste time drinking this.

From the Sharp Edge European Beerfest: an intresting irish ale. I still thhough it was very little, but not completely undrinkable.

This fucking sucks. Smells like rotten skunk and tastes much the same. Basically tastes like creamy budwieser. Not like I expected it to be good or anything though.

Not much of an head, chestnut-coloured.
A sour aroma and flavour, watery palate and some strange taste hidden inside.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2003 Rerate - 7/23/03 - finished the last of the 4 pak last night and it was a chore - just not a good flavor at all. Original rating - 2.9 - 16 ounce can - bit of a wet paper bag aroma, with slight malt undertones. Clear, dark copper color appearance with an off white head that is rather thin and dissipates quickly with little to no lacing. Bit of a spicy taste to it - tad of bitterness. Not the smoothest drinking ale around - but hey - it's Irish - it's got to be a little rough right?

This might be the worst beer I've had so far. Syrup color, no head. Revolting aroma and flavor. Woody tobacco-like palate. Hm...I must try this again to see if the sample I got was not poisoned...

Not bad. Almost like the Sapporo I just drank. This is a little maltier, has more of a bitter finish, and of course is darker with a bronze red color.
