On tap at the brewpub. Clear deep amber colour. Sweet malty caramel aroma, brown sugar, toffee, a very faint dose of earthiness as well. Flavour is quite sweet and nutty up front with a bit of herbal and spice toward the finish. A bit too sweet for my tastes.

Draft at Bushwhackers in Port Angeles: Deep mahogany. Crisp. Lively carbonation. A little toasted and nutty with a subtle toffee-like sweetness. Very mild bitterness. Candy-coated sweetness in aftertaste. Easy to drink and sessionable (albeit on the sweet side), but not overly exciting.

From my notes from recent trip to Seattle and Portland...DRAFT at the brewery / pub in Silverdale WA. Pours red with thin head. Nose is mostly brown sugar and caramel....smooth, creamy tastes of the same. Smooth in the mouth. Decent...not outstanding,but good.

Earthy, roasty, woody, malty. Little head but lively carbonation tickles the lips. Laudable hop-malt balance. Slightly tangy. Bready modest pleasant aftertaste.

Light, vaguely caramelly aroma. Dark amber hue. Very sweet, sort of a light cherry note...where they drink amber ale and it tastes just like cherry cola. Malts are toned down, sweet and alt-ish, but ultimately this is too sweet to win my favour. I’d struggle with a pint.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 9, 2008
Tap @ Brewery: Auburn, light head, great lacing. Nose of light caramel and grass. Subtle yeast and some caramelly malt esters. Light fruit in the tail, dry finish. Blah.

Prufrockstar (676) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bomber. Aroma is bread, caramel, grain, dirty dishsoap. Muddy red/brown, white head that dissipates to a ring. Taste is caramel-sweet, grainy, only the slightest bit of bitterness. Light body, soft carbonation, short finish. Sticky mouth residue long after it’s done, but during each sip the texture is thin. Overall: No idea how this is for the style (my first Irish ale as far as I can remember), but

Not much aroma. Amber in color. Malt taste but falls flat with no body. OK, but don’t plan on drinking again

Bottle courtesy bu11zeye. Clear light copper color with a small amount of white head. Aroma is a bit watery, with small amount of light malts. Very faint. Flavor is dry malts and grains with a slight bit of toasted notes. Watery finish. Straightforward and smooth.
