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

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.

Transfer from BA review on 9-15-12- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – Served a brown colored brew with light hints of red. Upon serving there was a nice just off white head of two fingers. The head faded relatively fast to leave a lighter level of lacing. Smell – The aroma was overall quite light. While light it was strongest of caramel and some roasted malt aromas. Mixed with these aromas is a light aroma of an earthy nature. Taste – The taste starts roasted and sweet with a good dose of caramel and some brown bread and roasted notes. As the flavor advances further the sweetness and roast fade slightly with hop flavors coming onto the scene. While the hop remains relatively light to the end where a more roasty and slightly earthy flavor are left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in thickness with a medium level of carbonation. Both create a very easy drinking brew. Overall – An easy drinking beer with a moderate roast, sweet, and hop flavor. Nothing exceptional, but quite balanced and a good session.

Ruby red appearance. Smell of some sweet malts and metal. Flavor not what I was expecting except for the ,eradicate flavors. Lacks decisive malt body. Bitter woodchip finish.

The aroma is malty with grains, grassy hops, and brown sugar. The appearance is amber with a large head. The taste is like the aroma with a bitter finish. The plate is typical. Overall pretty average.

Palidor19 (2963) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2013
This has a deep emphasis on the grains, the taste of the husks are very strong. It's all malt and hardly no hops. A great beer to enjoy ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
