3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice red brick colour with a fizzy white cap. The aroma is sweet, biscuit. caramel, toffee, brown sugar, dark fruit. The flavour is a pretty exact reflection of the aroma. All and all, it does nothing wrong, A little one dimensional. Decent though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazed and slightly browned to red colour. The aroma is all about the caramel malts, toffee and brown sugar but does show a little bit of dark fruit. On the palate those fruity notes jump out at me then those malty sweet and sticky notes and has a slightly bitter finish. I didn’t have much expectations for this brew going into this one but it has more body than I would have thought. Meh, could be worse.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
473ml can. Pours a ruby/caramel with a film, white head that laces. Aroma has notes of bread, carameland very slight fruitiness. Taste is on the malty side. Slight caramel and breadiness with a touch of traditional hops to balance it out. Slightly metallic tinge on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty clean mouth feel. Overall not bad but could be better. Bread and caramel throughout but not a lot. Worth a try.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
473 ml can from LCBO, served almost cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Murky mahogany with a smallish light tan head.
Aroma: Richly malty with plenty of brown sugar and caramel/toffee and a light savoury note, quite sweet, dark dried fruits, comes off more like a Scottish Wee Heavy than an Irish Ale.
Palate: Medium+ body, moderate carbonation.
Flav.: A touch lighter than the nose but still seems too rich for an Irish Ale (not that I am complaining...); sweet with some bitterness and a fairly decent, richly malty and somewhat finish.
I find it illogical that this is called an Irish Ale. Drink long and prosper.

Top: medium sized, bright white , medium density. Nice rings on glass.
Base: clear dark amber, very slight haze.

I fucking hate Star Trek & dammit if I don’t hate this beer. Tastes more like a malty soda pop than a beer. I knew I shouldnt have bought this. How embarrassing. Avoid this.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Dark mahogany pour medium beige head. A very malty aroma, but it smells cheap. Grassy, wet vegetal malts. Damn bready aroma with some wet paper. Yuck. The flavor is more of the same, sweet, cooked veggies, wet paper and soggy bread. This is dreadful.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2014 This beer has some low ratings here. The label is a bit of a gimmick and I thought this beer would be rather tastelss like a water-downed lager, but honestly this beer is not bad at all.

Maybe it was just a bad can but this had a bad metallic after taste and was not very good.

Quite surprised by this one. It had been sitting in the back of the fridge for quite a while and I tossed it into the cooler on the way to a Super Bowl party, expecting a sub-par pale lager suitable only for washing down nachos. But this was really not bad at all! Caramel malt backbone with a softly bitter finish.
