COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional light hop flavour balances the sweet malty caramel taste. The addition of a pinch of roast barley during the brewing process lends a distinctive roast bite which is balanced by a crisp dry medium bitterness.

ContemplateBeer (2052) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Draft pint from The Irish Rover. Aroma: Mostly caramel biscuit with a little woodsy hop note. Appearance: Slightly hazy copper red with a foamy tan head that sticks around. Flavor: Biscuity, semi-sweet malts up front with earthy hops, more drying than bitter, coming in thereafter; the finish is semi-dry. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Dead simple, but clean and sessionable. I don’t think many people would nerd out over this, but it’s a nice beer to go with conversation and traditional Irish food.

PowY (438) - AUSTRIA - JAN 20, 2017
From tap. Clear copper with a creamy beige head. The aroma is malty - caramel - and lightly hoppy with floral notes. Medium watery body with a light sweetness and a light to medium bitterness along with a very, very light acidity. The taste is again malty, dark bread, some caramel with very faint hints of mild coffee, along with a mildly bitter hop presence and some very light fruity notes - apple and pear. For the low ABV quite full of taste.

ljthiessen (1211) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 8, 2016
Bottle. Clear reddish brown pour with a small beige head. Aroma is caramel, a little metallic, slight biscuit notes, not bad. Taste is thin, metallic, some sugary sweetness and a weird medicinal bitterness in the finish. Aroma is what I would expect, but flavour really falls flat.

Tezminator (123) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2016
Aroma of caramel and roasted malt. The same applies to taste, added with certain sweetness. Some floral and herbal notes with moderate bitterness. What a beautiful balanced beer.
