Pours a deep clear mahogany with a light white head. Aroma is malt with a tad of smoke. Malty up front smokey and bitter in the middle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - FEB 8, 2017
Poured into a mug, the appearance was a dark copper/almost red color with a finger’s worth of white foaminess. Sly lacing. The aroma has some toast, herbal qualities, caramel/toffee malts and a slight bready crispness. The flavor leaned towards the combination of those previously mentioned aromas in a sweet sort of way. Nice herbal to nutty to caramel aftertaste with a subsiding finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation and the ABV felt fine. Overall, decent Irish red ale that I could see myself having again.

On tap, Camp Hill location. Pours a dark copper with a reddish tinge under a small creamy white head of decent retention. Aroma is sweet caramel malts under a light floral hoppiness. Flavor is a little thin, grassy hops up front with a finish that is lightly fruity. Mouthfeel is light bodied with an active carbonation.

Not one of the better Irish-style beers I’ve sampled. The Celtic Knot poured an amber color with almost no head at all. There was very little lacing and not a whole lot going on in the nose. The body and flavors are a bit bland, too. I tasted mostly semi-sweet malt and some bread flavors. The finish and aftertaste is a bit on the sour side.

Lubiere (13915) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2011
A reddish amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, rather grainy malt wth boiled bean notes. In mouth, a nice nutty malt, very grassy, a bit of vegetable matter. On tap at brewery restaurant, April 10th, 2011.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1010) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 4, 2011
Deep, hazy amber with little head. Aroma is of strong soapy/malty yeast. Big yeast comes through up front in the flavor. Very Irish, borderline funky, flavorful. Old malt taste, slight soap. Precedes nutty maltiness. Light and drinkable. Cool.

3.7
Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2010
On tap. Deep red color with a thick tan head. Very pleasant aroma of toasted nuts. Clean finish with caramel and toffee flavors with just a hint of hoppiness. Similar to Jolly Scot but much more flavorful.

3.3
BvilleBronc (85) - Biglerville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2010
Growler poured into pilsner glass. More dark than red in color with a significant tannish head. Suprised by aroma of bittering hops. Taste is very balanced with a strong malt back and backend of the bittering hops. Nicely done for a seasonable, nothing over the top and very sessionable.
