3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: reddish amber, light beigh head, minor lacing. Aroma: caramel and light brown bread, some toasted nuts and maybe some earthy hops. Taste: sweet, slightly toasty, definitive malty character, tasted similar to the aroma. Finish: light toasty sweetness, relatively short and clean. Notes: Pretty much a decent-but-not-great Irish Ale. I think the gold standard in the US is Great Lakes’ Conway’s Irish Ale and this didn’t come close. But it definitely wasn’t terrible either. Just a little muddled. Bottle from Total Wine in Fairfax, Virginia (Pickett Center).
