UPDATED: MAY 22, 2006 Crisp clear amber color with light carbonation. Very light toast aroma portends a light malty mouthfeel. Hoppiness is very subdued. Very Bass-like, with a little more hop character.

On tap at Okra’s in Manassas, VA. Burguny-brown color with a small, unattractive white head. Not much of a smell just some sugars and skuny malt. Taste is equally as plain and boring. I have no clue how this beer is rated so well. I found it to be disappointing and below average.

on draft: i have heard about this beer forever and couldnt wait to taste it once i saw it on draft at the bar. i was wrong for waiting. not much of a beer very watery and thin with a caramel toffee flavor that rolls around and goes away. if you want to have a smithwicks and dont want the alcohol or have to go to the bar. get a piece of caramel and drink with cold water and youll get the same impression. uninteresting.

Perhaps I was spoiled, having just come from the Clark Street Ale House and some rather respectable brews. But I had a full Imperial pint and it was a struggle to enjoy this. Caramel flavors but very thin. Only a titch of a malt body, and overall very watery and weak, especially considering all that color (makes you think about coloring additives?). Drinkable, at least, but not much more than that. (on tap, Fado [Irish Theme Pub], Chicago, IL)

Pours a dark amber color. Body is very weak an watery. Lots of head that laces around the glass. Very bland taste.

pours a dark amber color... sweet malty flavor but not much flavor... easy drinking.. not real impressed... I would drink it again.. but view it on the dull side.

On draught at Tigin in Stamford. Pours out red with a small dissipating head. Taste starts out on the grassy side and finished on the nutty end. Not bad for a session ale.

On tap at the Celtic Swell in West Seattle. Deep mahagoney color with little to no head. Bland malty nose. Watered down with some elements of malt, caramel, and nuts. Boring!
