COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For Slane’s Ale™, we blend 5 grains and 2 hop varieties to produce a luscious ale whose smooth flavor is complimented by both C02 and Nitrogen/Creamer dispensing. Its beautiful deep ruby color is accented by the tight, creamy head produced by either of these methods. Since Diamond Knot uses no filters or pasteurization to clear our products, you are guaranteed every sip of full ale flavor!

skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2010
Nice drinking version of the so-called "Irish Ale" from the DK! Honestly, not being too impressed with this style usually, this brew contained a nice body, complexity, and beautiful light blend of malt and hop on the finish. One of the better "Irish Ales" I’ve had!

highibus (821) - Vail, Arizona, USA - MAR 11, 2010
Reddish amber with lost of lacing. Light aroma. Malty sweet and clean finish.

ericsondr (48) - Camano Island, Alabama, USA - MAR 11, 2010
This beer has what I would describe as a "gentle" flavor. Not weak or watery but instead full of subtle hints of flavor. A very enjoyable brew with a light color and great lacing.

eyesolus (64) - Mill Creek, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2009
Tap at Lincoln Ave; pours near red brown with a nice malt flavor that quenches the thirst; their early spring seasonal on tap now; creamy head with a sweet caramel finish. (#27)

3.1
anders37 (26625) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2008
Draught @ the brewpub. Pours a dark amber color with a small off-white head. Sweetish malty aroma with some hints of caramel and some weak hints of hops. Sweetish malty hoppy flavor with caramel hints. Has a sweetish malty finish with some hints of caramel and hops in the aftertaste.

3.5
Skyview (6056) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 2, 2008
On draught at the brewpub in Mukilteo, Washington. Pours a clear dark copper amber with a creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates to a creamy white ring that has nice retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of semi-sweet caramel malt, some brown sugar, a touch of smoked peat and dry earth herbs. Taste is medium bodied, very light carbonated with flavors of smoked caramel malt, some light roasted nuts, and very light flowery hops. Finish is semi-sweet at first and then turns to a dry roasted dark malt aftertaste that slowly disappears. Not as bitter finish as the ESB except more malt flavors.

3.7
SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2008
draft @ brewery - brown cola and big off-white head; lots of lacing per drafts at DN; not too sweet and drinks nice and smooth; a mild richness to it with some candy malts and slight sweetness; dangerously drinkable

3.6
after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAR 7, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Crystal clear deep ruddy dark amber with thin grayish head and decent lacy sheets. Nice malty sweet caramel on the nose without a doubt. Medium body with nice soft well-balanced carb. Rich caramel and light crackery toast on the mid-palate. Perfectly modulated leafy, peppery hop finish that washes into a nice resiny cling.
