3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear coppery brown with small-medium off-white head, which goes quickly but leaves some nice lacing and small skim.
Big caramel nose with yeast and some nuttiness. Palate follows suit, with caramel, burnt toast, slight fruitiness that tends toward pumpkin plus a touch of hop bitterness on the finish.
In no way is this complex or nuanced, but it’s a delicious session beer that’s gone before you know it.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2016 Ruby red and clear as a bell. Slightly off-white foamy head about a cm thick after it was poured out of the 500ml can. At first you can smell the yeast which is followed by a deep floral and fruity aroma. It has a certain caramel malty flavour and a hint of bitterness and balanced.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pour into tulip glass from Cigarette City. Aroma is dominant caramel with earth and dark fruits with red wine quality. Appearance is clear dark reddish amber with trace sparkle, finger-width foamy off-white head with fair retention and fair leggy lacing. Taste is as aroma with strong caramel but also light bitter from Noble hops. Palate is medium bodied, average-to-lively carbonation with slight numbing to lips; finish is crisp and abrupt. Overall, a pretty straightforward beer without a lot of nuance outside the aroma.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear reddish brown. One finger light tan head that laces well and retains nicely. Aroma of caramel that’s very light. Taste of sweet malts with just a hint roast bitterness. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, slightly sticky mouth feel. Finishes moderately sweet. Tasting notes of caramel, biscuit, tree nuts, roasted malts and slight earthy bitterness. A good Irish ale, nothing spectacular but drinkable.
