Finnegans Irish Amber is brewed with three varieties of imported two-row malts. The beer is pale amber in color but light in body. A gentle hop bitterness compliments its complex malt character.

Finnegans is currently available on tap and in liquor stores throughout the state of Minnesota. Finnegans is unique in that 100% of the profits are donated to The Finnegans Community Fund which disburses grants to help the working poor and at-risk youth throughout Minnesota.

JPDIPSO (6042) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 20, 2008
Light copper color with a fizzy diminsihed... "damn" the heads gone already, so I dont know what color it was, but is wasnt white, so something darker and not quite white head. Wait, if it is gone before I got a good look at it was it ever really ever there? To be honest, one of the more worthless heads I have ever encountered. It still gets a two because the liquid still looks good, but Im thinking the body is going to suffer. Caramel and corn soup aromas. Not bad, but not clean and very amber like. Actually the palate is quite light and with a nearly not as much fizz as I would have expected. Flavors of lightly toasted grain, touch of dark corn syrup and floral hops. I dont find much that is Irish in this one. Generic sweetness in the finish and linger.

Not as "amber" as killians. Nose is of Bud Lite and pears. Not an offensive taste, but not much taste at all. Very lite malt and then just a hint of hops. (probably just from sitting on the summit loading dock) I could drink a shitload of these. Very lite bodied. Not very impressive, but the sixer wont go to waste.

On Tap. Light amber in color with a small head. Low aroma of of malt and hops. Taste is the same, more malt than hops and thin. A pretty bland brew that finishes weak.

keoki182 (305) - West Bend, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2007
In bottle from Southswitch near Tower, MN. Very bland malt aroma. Very bland malt flavor. Tasted like a macro disguised as a micro. Went okay with wings, if only for the inherent water content in the beer. I did not taste the potatoes referenced on the label.

Draft @ Kierans Irish Pub, Minneapolis: Copper, nice head and lacing. Clean, easy drinking beer, typical I guess. Balance with a touch of caramel. The finish is toasty, meh.

Autumn Brew Review 07
I wanted to sample this, mainly to rate the last available Summit beer and avoid having to purchase a whole bottle, or even worse, a sixer. Bland non offensive flavor. Faint hops. Potato - maybe - are you really going to taste it? Like rice or corn, its pretty flavorless.

A bad marketing gimmick but Im sure it works for some folk, not for most ratebeerians, Id guess though.

sthlm (1289) - Duluth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2007
[Draft, ABR 07] Pours amber with a small white head. Very bland aroma. Taste is dominated by something that is strange and unpleasant--maybe the potato. Medium mouthfeel. Really not very good, ended up pouring out about half of my sample.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Bottle. Pours an attractive golden/copper with a thin white head. Very grainy and bready on the nose with a hint of alcohol which is surprising given its low ABV. Medium to light bodied. Grassy and grainy with a hint of roasted malt and caramel.

kyzr (1433) - Montana, USA - AUG 12, 2007
Amber bottle pour with very small head. Grainy nose, not a lot of hop to the nose. Flavor was thin with a touch of toasted malt and very light hops. Very clean finsih.
