3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is complex fruit and malty, similar to an ESB. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a hint of nuttiness, and a decent hoppy finish. Solid ale, close to an ESB in flavor.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Half litre bottle, $2 closeout @ Binny’s, Bolingbrook. I can only guess one of Binny’s distributors is shedding some brands from their portfolio, but this gives me a chance to try my first REAL Welch beer—InBev brewing Murphy’s Irish Stout there hardly worth counting. Fruity smell under the cap that I didn’t expect in a bitter. In glass it has an alcohol smell, bit of cough drop, so this may be a bit old. Light brown color, filtered clear, under a thin head. First thing I notice upon tasting is that there’s low carbonation, per style. Fruity ale taste. Despite the alcohol smell, there’s no burn on the tongue. Certainly a nice pub drink. Some citrus that may come from hop, or a bit of staling. Certainly worth revisiting if I get a chance.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours just like the excellent photo, orange-amber with a nice creamy top. The aroma is caged up, I think, barely discernible. The beer drinks with a distinct breadiness, thick like a slice of pumpernickel, musty and gamey. Quite the drinkable bitter. (#4006, 10/31/2010)
