COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Rooney family is no stranger to the beer and pub business. Their roots go back to the turn of the 20th century when Dan Rooney opened the family’s first pub on the corner of Corey and General Robinson Streets where Three Rivers Stadium later stood in Pittsburgh,PA. In 1933, the family entered the brewing business in Braddock, PA. Today the family celebrates both its Celtic and Pittsburgh Pride with the next generation of brews starting with Rooney’s Old Irish Style Ale

BREWMUSKCLES (2266) - New Jersey, USA - APR 6, 2013
a delightful Irish style ale with flavors of toast and caramel not too sweet and with a bit of soapy pine hop that with it’s caustic nature adds some body. still smooth this brew has a little fruit in the mix.

draft, poured a dark brown color, medium sized tan head. Good lacing throughout the drink. Aroma was sweet malts with light fruity hops. The flavor was semi sweet, some bready flavors, caramel, with hints of fruity hops. Medium body. There is some complexity in this brew. Good finish.

Aurelius (4257) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Dry, toasty aroma with some nuts. Clean label, standard US longneck, keystone cap. Clear, dark brown beer, thin lacy head. Flavor mirrors the aroma -- dry, toasty/roasty, lightly acidic, pleasant bittering. Session weight, long roasty aftertaste gets a little clingy. A little sweetness and raisin as it warms. Not bad. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.

PorterPounder (5607) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium copper, slightly sparkling, very slight off-white head. Aroma has some very slight meaty undertones, a touch of cinnamon. Flavor has some peaty qualities, a touch of toffee, some nuttiness, a hint of chewing tobacco. Very flavorful for an Irish Ale. Smooth mouthfeel. Much better than expected.

Hanging out with some other people at a sports bar I chose to stay away from Southern Tier’s seasonal diabetes bombs. Instead I opted for this passable irish ale. It was good enough but if I were to visit Pittsburgh I’d look for East End’s interpretation of the style.

Aroma / Appearance - Caramel toned liquid bobs below a dirty white head. Caramel, red vines, and nutty aspects remind me of a candy bar in a glass.

Flavor / Palate - Caramel, honey, and almonds tease the palate. Eventually they settle down into red licorice that clings to the back of the throat. The dry finish isn’t bad but I felt like it could have had just a bit more. Even so this was a good start to the evening.

A friend gave me one of these in a 120z bottle tonite. Reminded me of Seirra Neveda IPA. Toasted Malt with an earthy after taste. Nice complex mouth feel. I enioyed it so much a ran over to the beer distributor and bought a case tonite.

Not sure if it was the end of the night or the lines weren’t clean but i didn’t enjoy this as much as other folks. Had a slighty metallic and astringent taste to it. Nothing much redeeming except for the color was a very nice deep amber.
