2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Radio Maria, ordered accidentally. Red amber colour, no head. Aroma is caramel and vague red fruits with a candyish sweetness, maybe red liquorice? Sweet caramel flavour with leathery notes and a dry finish. I didn’t care for it.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours deep copper with a pretty sizable head and thin, creamy lacing that sticks nicely to the glass. Aroma not much at all - just some slightly pungent, peaty malts. Flavor is a nice, light, toasty profile, very typical for the style; just a hint of spice sets it apart. Nice Irish Ale, and the best O’Fallon beer I’ve had so far. If it were more aromatic, it’d be closer to 3.4 or 3.5, but I still give it a solid 3.

tap Nice deep amber color with a soft notes (slight hints of mixed fruit). Sweet in taste with a nice kick of liquor towards the end, but a little too light/watery on the palate

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small biege head. Aroma of malt, grain, and a bit of smoke. Taste is caramel malt, grain, fruit, and some smoke. Decent enough.

Thanks to Uncle Dave. Thinner bodied less roasted red ale. Dry finish. Hops at the end maybe a little too strong. Serving: Bottle

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from The Party Source. Meant to consume this on St. Patrick’s Day but didn’t get a chance to drink any beers that day. An off day for the NCAA Tournament will do. Pours a clear copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, leaves, and toast. Flavor of caramel malts, peanuts, dry leaves, toasted brown sugar, and some spice at the end. Light-medium bodied, with a sweet, sharp mouthfeel and carbonation that makes itself known at the end. Not bad.

Aroma is caramel malts, toffee and a hint of earthiness. The flavor is caramel malts, light toffee, fruit and a mix of grainy, beery and slightly metallic in the finish.

Peaty taste. Nothing too special about this one. At least I get to check MO off my list of states.

12oz bottle, from Party Town. Screw top bottle. Clear copper color, lots of bubbles on the side of the glass. Pours with a bubbly off-white head. Soon fades to minimal. Only a dot or two of lace sticks. Caramel malt, lightly spicy flavor. Light to medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation, not too hard to drink. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Solid Irish ale, better than expected. Good to wash a sandwich down with.
