3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Bitter? No. An Irish Ale? Yes. A clear, reddish/copper body, mildly effervesced, under a short, sand-colored head. Malty aroma (pale and caramel) with little else than a whiff of lemon. A bit sharp on the tongue with a mineral-water bite. Mild, caramel-malt flavor with touches of honey sweetness atop a backdrop of Perrier. While this is a very, VERY mild beer, it’s inoffensive and addictively quaffable... a fine lawnmower beer. I really was not expecting much when I found a 6 pk. bottles for $4.99, but I ended up thinking this could be a nice St. Patrick’s Day offering for guests who think Smithwick’s might be a little too malty. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ 6 pk./12oz., Foremost Liquors, Oak Forest, IL

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle indicates brewed in Rochester, NY. I assume High Falls is contracting to make this in the States. Copper to umber in color. Smaller beige head. Sweet grain, caramel, a touch worty, and weak molasses in the background. By initial thought after tasting, was that this is caramel and malt flavored soda water. My second taste brought the thought that this is caramel and malt flavored soda water. My third quaff brought… I don’t think I need to continue. 2/10

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Hazy amber with off white head. Aroma of caramel and some dates. Sweet and malty flavour with cake notes, dark fruit and a mild bitter finish. Not a fresh sample, but still fresh enough to rate and not bad. Would like to try this straight from the brewery though with a little more bitterness.

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.
