3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Oh no love for this well made brew, Tap @ Blind Tiger. Malty and earthy aroma, very authentic Irish Ale representation. Then finishes with a touch of burnt sweetness. Taste is dry and earthy with light soil bitterness. I was very surprised by how well this came out and would drink it again for sure.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Boat House in Conshohocken, my old stomping grouds. Clear amber red color with small tight off white head. Aroma was really just malt. Flavors of light malt, nutzs, and caramel. Flavors the same. Fizzy pop rock finish. Why?? Decent, but not great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Pizza Plant, Williamsville, N.Y. Pours a hazy orange-copper with an average size lasting creamy off-white head. Mild aroma has a very slight sour tinge to it along with caramel malt, fruit and very light hops. Flavour, also mild, of caramel malt, light nuttiness and light hops. Average bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Overly weak and somewhat dull, itís just O.K.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask. At Pizza Plant (Walker) in Williamsville. The fist pint was brutally sour, obviously there hadnít been a pint pulled for quite a while - the rating is for the second pint. Deep clear copper with a solid, long-lasting creamy beige head. Dry, grainy-malty aroma, tart and yeasty. The taste was a little malt-deprived, and it wasnít even that hoppy - mostly like a bitter iced herbal black tea with extra lemon, a bit of bottle metal, which was pretty odd. I have to admit the mouthfeel was dead on for cask - soft, gently astringent, not much carbonation, smooth - but weak bodied and a tad acidic for all that. Overall needs more malt body and a little less lemony sourness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft->juice glass (tasting@brewery): Pours a spare, lasting white head that exhibits spare lacing atop of a clear tawny body. The malt is of cookie, the hops are of pine, and there is a hint of clove in there as well. The body is medium, the texture is alcoholic, and the carbonation is flat. The flavor is average duration, lightly acidic, and moderately bitter with a tinge of cedar that over-arches the entire taste.

Draft at Barcade. I gotta say thereís not much in the aroma or the flavor. thereís some grassiness and chocolate with a nice flavor of malt but I tell you brothers and sisters, you really have to search for some flavor here. Session? Okay.
