3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle "from authentic imported Irish ingredients and ... brewed in the USA" (from label) served in a snifter.
Pours a clear, dark brown with a small but beige head that leaves some patchy lacing.
Aroma: fruity , malty and floral, in that order. Hints of toffee.
Taste: a nice mix of sweet caramel and medium malt with a touch of spicy/herbal hop bitterness. Some fruitiness in the taste suggesting apples, pears and a bit of dark fruits.
Mouthfeel: medium body with enough carbonation to impart some tongue tingle. Semi-dry.
O: Interesting take on the style Some complexity.

Dark amber appearance. 1 finger off white head. Brown sugar and caramel. Hints of bitterness like an esb. Taste is bland and flat soda water. Maybe unsweetened root beer? Very odd taste.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours nearly clear red-brown with a short tan head.
Scent is light, sweet caramel and malt.
Taste is caramel and cola...some soft dark fruits.
Nice woody bitter...almost nutty.
An excellent drinker...not flashy, deserves much better numbers.
A great, solid beer.
