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

From the 120z bottle fresh from Penn Brewery direct. Coming from Penn you expect something good and this ale stands on all points. No compromise on ingredients or taste is evident and the results are pleasing on first impression. Pours well with a balanced aroma and a rich foamy head. Perfect coloration on the appearance. Maybe I’m just partial to the spirit of Pittsburgh that permeates this selection, but I’d gladly revisit this tasty beverage more than once with friends who might miss this limited offering.

Bottle. Surprisingly tasty ale. I think I was expecting something subpar and watery, but this was the opposite. I mean, it was nothing to go crazy over, but it impressed me just the same. Toasty cinnamon scent with an amber appearance and foamy head. Medium bodied, sticky textured palate, and a spiced, malt, bitter taste.

RONCOD (219) - Uledi, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Pours a deep brown with a medium white head. Good flavor with a good bit of bitterness at the end. I’m still not sure if this is really an Irish beer though.

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.

Bottle states blending of an Irish Style Red Ale and an American Amber Ale. This is a good beer for everyday drinking.
