An earthy, lightly toasty traditional Best Bitter brewed to showcase newly available Irish Stout and Ale malts. We use Special B and Black malts for color and slight roast complexity. It is named for Gerry Adams, the president of Sinn Fein, who was instrumental in the development of the Belfast Agreement in the late 1990s, which brought a cease-fire to Northern Ireland.

Tap flight at the brew pub, served in nitrogen. Dark caramel color with a dense nitro egg shell head. Excellent lace tha. Oats the glad. Not much aroma. Flavor is sweet bread, aromatic veggie hops, and very nutty. Tips toward the sweeter side of things for an ESB. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Ok.

jmgreenuk (4600) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2013
Tap at Revolution Brewing, Milwaulkee Ave, Chicago. Poured a clear chesnut brown with a long living frothy off white head. The aroma is weak malt. The flavour is medium to weak bitter with a big malt liqourice hoppy palate with a short bitter finish. Served warm, just as it should be! Shame about the name though.

Dogbrick (8237) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a clear amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, herbal hops and touches of fruit. The finish is sweet with a nutty and malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Multi hued copper with a huge, creamy white head. Light grain nose. Pale malt taste with a nice bitter backend complimented by flavors of toffee and toasted nuts. Smooth feel. Very sessionable.

ccex (931) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2012
On tap at brewery today. (The bartender said this was from their last remaining keg). Pours an almost clear reddish amber with a huge white head and some lacing. Aroma has floral hops, lemon, bready malts, and perhaps orange peel. Medium body and average carbonation. Taste is not as bitter as I had expected, but has the bready malts and a long clean finish. An easily drinkable, good but not great beer.
