Pours a red/abmer color. Small white bubbly head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, apples, and a little funkyness to it. Flavor is sweet and malty again, with a somewhat thin boring flavor overall. Palate is thin and somewhat uninspiring.

OK, but didn’t stand out. Nice copper colour witha thin head and minimal lacing. Very malty on the nose, and then again the sweet malts in the taste. Medium body with a fairly quick finish. Easy drinking but not memorable.

A light malty aroma with some fruit is evident. The color is a dark golden with a shortlasting white head. There is a light malt and hop balance on the palate.

On tap at Coles. Clear copper body with a small, dissapearing white head. Nutty, caramel aroma. Tasty roasted malty flavor. Sweet, hoppy. Bubbly mouthfeel. I’m a big fan of Irish Ales, this was nice, but not the greatest.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2004 Amber red body with sweet malt aroma - fresh. Body is mildy carbonated, smoothing out as it warms. Thick caramel paints the center of the tongue and roof of my mouth. Finish is hoppier than some of the style - I liked that, it helped balance out the sweetness.

The local IGA isn't normally a place one discovers a new great beer. Lo and behold, miracle's never cease. There nestled next to 8 month old 6 packs of Corona & Zima (dust everywhere I tell ya) was this little gem. Malty, hoppy, and only 6 blocks away!! This is officially the best beer (aside from the stuff I and my fellow homebrewers brew ourselves) within a one mile radius of my home!!! Now, as long as my buddies don't discover the find, I'll be all set!!

Nice amber beer, moderate white head, roasted malt and slight hop aroma, decent malt flavor with an above average bitter finish. some floral hints in the flavor. Good session beer.

Dark amber, lite tan head. Sweet nose, like cream, with some grassy hops. Light flavor: grassy, slightly metallic, a bit watery.

On draft at a local winking lizard tavern. toasty, kicked off the st. patrick’s season, a reddish hue. Will look for in a bottle to see difference.

Malty aroma with hints of fruit. Copper color with lacy white head. Toasted malt taste with a slightly bitter finish. Unusual style that is nice when in season.
