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.

A beautiful-looking beer; decent on the flavor side, but not too dissimilar to Leinenkugel Red when you come right down to it. I’d rate them about even: drinkable but not spectacular.

Irish? This is a straight-ahead american-style amber with a fair dosage of crystal malts and earthy hops. Nothing special about it, but you could do worse.

Sweet malty nose. The flavor has a nice roasted malt beginning with hints of chocolate that finishes fairly quickly. A subtle sweetnes lingers after the flavor diminishes. Average to slightly above average.

The beer tastes firm and robust at first, but it trails off. There is no finish. It looks amazing though and it pretty flavorful, but brief.

Very nice copper-red color; however, the head is nearly non-existant. Somewhat of a weak aroma (although I admittedly have a cold right now, so this may not be the case). Flavor is very fruity, low in carbonation, with a quick hop ’ping’ at the tail end. Smooth. Outside of the aroma, I was very impressed with this beer; a nice take on an amber ale.

So-so beer from New Glarus. Snowshoe, reddish-brown in colour, had a decent hop aroma. The flavor was malty and dry. A little sour and fruity in the palate. The finish was pleasant and a bit tangy.

ANother huge disappointment form these guys- Red in color; no head; malt mildness in the nose. Some coconut angles in the mouth- YUCK. Sits on the tngue strangely.

I will say this one has gotten better in the last few years, but I still haven’t figured out why make an octoberfest ale?! Good caramel malt. Sure wish they would make Cabin Fever belgian style double again for the winter seasonal!

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2004 It was malty, but I didn’t catch the hops. Smelled better than it tastes

Nothing special here. Loaded with caramel in both the aroma and flavor department. Very smooth and drinkable.
