Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Sampled on tap at the brewpub in Stevenson, Washington during ABA Beer Tour ’07. Pours a clear reddish amber brew with a thin white head that dissolves to a fine ring. Aroma of earthy herbs/spices, some caramel malt and flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of fruity pears/apples, mild flowery hops, and a touch of caramel. Finish has a mildly dry sweet character and flavor.

Draft: pours an amber color with a 1 finger dense white head. Nice light english hops aroma. Flavor is malty and crisp with moderate bitterness and a lot of earthy english hop flavor. Very smooth and crisp, extremely drinkable.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - APR 12, 2006
(Counter-pressure filled 12 oz bottle: Obtained 21-Mar-06 in trade with wohlfs, thanks Steve!) Not at all like the (few) Irish Ales I’ve tried, this one has a striking, up-front, white-grape and lychee fruitiness which remains constant throughout. The beer finishes with a moderately bitter hoppiness that kind of creeps up on ya’. Malt is sweet and mildly caramely, but the malt flavor and body are on the thin side to me. Same fruitiness in the nose, again reminding me of lychee, with a floral hoppiness in the background. Light carbonation from the hand-bottling, but acceptable nevertheless. Coppery-amber color, some haze, topped by a small, off-white head that settles to a wispy film surrounded by a wide ring. Drooped lacing looks like bunting. Too fruity and floral for me, but I do like the pleasant hops overtone.

kramer (4905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2006
12 oz handbottle, via Wohlfs. Pours a clear dark copper with a redish tint with a minimal white head that faded quickly. Nice toasted malt nose with a light tinge of alcohol and cherry pits. Flavor is well balanced between the caramel and toasted malts and a nice earthy bitterness. Finish is lingering and bitter with some fruitiness. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and a little lacking in carbonation despite being able to rouse a whirlwind of tiny bubbles with a swirl of the glass. A decent beer, more flavorful than your average Irish Ale. Perhaps not the best suited beer to handbottle, but other than the low carbonation there seems to be no ill effects.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2006
Hand-bottled from tap: Clear and bright; shiny-penny copper hue. Healthy body, but not syrupy or heavy. Malts were boldly toasty and a bit cracker-like. Spicy and hoppy, with sharpish notes of flowers, plants and pepper. Crisp, zippy and fairly easy to quaff. Thanks, Steve!

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - MAR 1, 2006
Tap off of a keg from the brewery. Pours a modest coppery amber color, clear. Nice billowy white head which leaves good lacing behind. Aroma is a bit earthy and herbal. Medium bodied. Flavors run to the hoppy side. Very earthy, somewhat musty. Slight notes of caramel attempt to balance. Moderate hop bitterness in the finish. Nicely done, a great session beer.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2006
Rich red color, with a small off white head. Fresh biscuity aroma, with a light hint of sweet fruitiness. Sweet caramel, with a light bit of smokiness, and a long longering finish.
