ARH (1045) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aromas are not very strong on this one, but what does appear is a cereal and grainy note with a faint caramel sweetness and an abundant damp and leather aroma. Itís a dark, but clear, amber-orange color (maybe more brown than orange) with a big white-ish, puffy head. When it reduces, it gets a swiss-cheese look to it. The head hangs around for a while until it reduces to a soda-fizz looking ring, but it leaves a good amount of puffy lace down the glass. The taste is a flat, medium-light sweetness and light bitterness. The mouth is light bodied (maybe medium bodied), thin texture, with lots of effervescent, fizzy carbonation. Thereís a flat citrus flavor in the mouth with a bit of nut flavor and a light caramel. There seems to be an underlying rye, or just generally grainy, flavor throughout. It finishes with a light toasty note and some grassiness. The aftertaste is mostly clean with a rye and cereal flavor that doesnít linger very long.

I had it from the bottle. The taste is corn malt, caramel, and a light hint of bitter hops. Itís crisp and refreshing. Itís always a decent choice. Itís drinkable and solid.

Keg at The Errigal Country House, Co Cavan. Short review at a social event. Murky red, light haze, foamy off-white head. Body is medium, soft carbonation. Taste is light with toffee, wholewheat bread with a cherry-like tang, nutty finish. Basic, but OK.

Pour on tap at Kytelers Inn, clear dark red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, watery grain, hints of husk, touch of grass. Taste was a mix of orange, grass, bread, slight caramel into a bit of spice, finishing slightly watery, slightly sweet.
