Good flavor and appearance. Goes down smooth. Freshness is a must. Had an old, stale one served to me at a bar while on vacation a few years ago and it was 6 months before I could bring myself to try it again. But its definitely in my regular rotation again.

Pint @ O'learys. Ok, but one of the more boring ones. I'd rather grab a Guinness.

Draft at a hotel bar. Pours clear red amber and a thin tan head. Nose of malts, some toast, and faint flowers. Taste is a tad sweet, some toast. Flowers on the finish. Kinda bland. Mouth seems a tad thin but ok none the less.

A - Pours a clear dark amber with brilliant clarity. A 1.5 finger eggshell head that sinks slowly. Descent lacing.
S - Doughy bread, sweet toffee malts-lightly toasted.
T - Dry grain mixes with a semi muted caramel malt background. Some fruity notes come out as it sits and has bread dough around the edges. Some faint tannins in the finish.
M - Creamy and dry.
This a good all around kick back beer. Dryer than the nose lets on. Easy drinking.

Bready aroma with some sweet malts. Some bitterness; good carbonation. Mouthfeel is very nice also. Hard to tell this apart from, say, a premium lager, but it’s certainly a decent, quaffable beer with a good malt profile and just the subtlest hint of hops to keep it interesting. Super sessionable.

I liked the overall taste and palate of this beer. It wasn’t as smooth as some other beers but far better than most.
