Can. Pours a clear deep reddish amber with a near white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a large bread note with a bit of toffee and backing and a touch of biscuit. Flavor is more balanced with toffee, bread and nuttiness as well as just as hint of a grass note.

tap Aroma is sweet, of cream, sugar, and malt. Flavor features malt, candy sugar, toffee, and a strange skunkiness. Not terrible, but definitely on par with my (low) expectation

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Gross. Nope nope nope. Bad flavor or some sort of combination that just doesn’t do any Irish ale justice in this can. Avoid.
