Transfer from BA review on 2-29-12 - Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Served a medium red colored body with a white head. The head fades fast leaving only a slight amount of lacing. Smell – The nose is rather light. There is however a bit of sweet caramel and a little roasted malt breadiness in the nose. Taste – The taste is quite sweet of caramel up front. As the taste advances some more bready maltiness works its way into the taste and subdues a bit of the sweetness. There is a little bit of citrus flavor that then works it way into the taste, with the taste then ending with a very light roasty flavor, not much, but it mixes well with the sweet breadiness and light citrus. Mouthfeel – A little on the lighter side, yet very fitting for the sweetness and flavor of the brew. This coupled with a moderate level of carbonation make it very easy to drink. Overall – Easy drinking with a nice sweeter flavor. A session brew to enjoy at the pub with some good friends.

mansquito (3337) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2014
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma is caramel and toffee. Taste, to my mind, was OK, but something was slightly off. This beer lacked that special something that I like in Irish ales. Can’t really put my finger on it, but I finished this quickly to get it over with.

A dark and hazy ruby red color, beige head and mild clinging lace. Aroma of caramel malt, sugar, malt, earth. Taste is the same but a mild variation. Pretty basic lager here, sort of a Sam Adams spiced lager...standard and safe. Not bad.

Draft at Baggataway. Pours a clean amber with creamy white head and spots of lace. Aroma is grain, caramel, nut, toast. Medium body. Sweet with a lot of gainy, nutty flavor. Some light fruit esters. Good for the style but I don’t care much for the style. I could drink a couple of these though.
