COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This authentic amber Irish ale is slow brewed with a blend of three malted barleys and finished with four varieties of hops. Then we dry-hopped in the lager tank to add a spicy note to warm your winter evenings. Expect this beer to be a beautiful copper-red, with a fruity ale body and a spiced hop finish.

Dragonfly1 (493) - Colorado, USA - MAR 12, 2014
From Mars... Dark copper pour, nice aromas of bock-like spice and sweet caramel, even a dusting of cocoa powder. More cinnamon spice right away, the middle is all lightly toasted malts, and a finish of very light pine hop. Just a touch too sweet still in the finish, but otherwise solid.

Bottle. A good amber ale, fruity and yeasty, but not overpowering. Great fragrance. Taste is a little sour at times, but still refreshing.

JStax (2960) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle pour into a pint glass. Pours a clear amber with a light beige head of foam. Good lacing and retention. The aroma is malty sweet with just a touch of spice. Maybe there’s a rye addition. The taste is mostly sweet and crackery. Light body with medium carbonation.

Strykzone (4912) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Twelve ounce bottle from Woodman’s in Beloit. This pours clear amber and and has a small beige layer of foam. A nice aroma that is full of malts and more delicate fruit. Some dry hop notes brings a bit of spiciness to the flavor. The Irish malts are close to genuine and the fruit is evident. A little earth and toffee. This drinks a lot like an English Bitter. Pleasant.

A solid amber. Pours a beautiful deep copper color. Nice bready aromas and flavors. Fruity and sweet with some nice bitter notes. Nice.
