COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

A: The pour is a light amber color with a fluffy off-white head. S: A pretty light and unimpressive nose overall with some light notes of grain and caramel. T: Light in flavor as well with a strong adjunct character. Almost like glorified Budweiser, showing plenty of corn and grain. M: Fitting in with the rest of the beer, the body is quite light and overly carbonated and fzzy. D: Not a fan of this one at all. This was enough of an experience with this beer.

Bottle. Sour milk, toffee malt, and straw aroma. Golden yellow with large off-white head. Mildly sweet buttery toffee malt and mildly bitter straw flavor. Good body. Pretty good.

Bottle. Pours a clear a pale amber orange with very visible carbonation and a white head that dissipates and laces slightly. Aroma is thin with a decent amount of corn with a a bit of sweetness and hints of grass notes. Flavor is similarly thin with light grains and corn and a bit of grass.

Pours amber with white head, aroma is where the potato comes through with some caramel malt. Taste is slightly hoppy up front, then goes into the caramel malt and the potato dulls it out in the finish. Pretty good for mass produced beer.

Picked this up at the Space Alien Grill and Bar in St Cloud - cool place built for kids but they also sell beer - so cant be all that bad! Has a light copper appearance with a thin white head; faint caramel aroma with some fresh lake water aroma as well. Flavor of sweet caramel and toffee; not much of a hop presence. Has a tad bit of a metallic mouthfeel and is slightly thin. Overall a decent change of pace.

On tap at Kierans Irish Pub, Minneapolis, June 2007. It is indeed amber in colour with a thin white head. Touch of light cereal malt on the nose. Not much hop coming through. Much the same on the palate with the malt coming through a bit more strongly. Mouthfeel is clean and smooth with a sweetish undercurrent. A bit gassy for my taste. Might have picked up more had I left it to warm up a bit, but I was thirsty so it didnt last long. I would guess that the potato thing is more of a gimmick than a significant element of the fermentables. Pretty uneventful stuff but theres nothing offensive about it.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Bottled. Poured clear coppery-amber with a sticky cap of off-white head.. really nice lacing followed it down. The aroma picked up some really odd vegetal character (mustve been the potatoes) upfront that never fully went away.. toasty pale malts and faint fruit supported light earthy and floral notes.. non-offensive, but non-good too. The flavor was along those same lines.. pale malts and honey at the core with dry herbal and vegetal hits around.. more honey and some sharp notes (carbonation and a little boozage) on the finish. Light-medium bodied with overly-assertive carbonation.. just not a good feel.

Aroma is caramel malts and an odd nutty character. The flavor is caramel malts, a small hint of hops and a tart finish.

On tap. Amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt with just a hint of hops. Tastes sweet, pretty thin. Potatoes? Not much going on.
