4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled Poured an average sized off-white head that dissipated after a few minutes; fair lacing. Reddish-orange color; slight chill haze that cleared as the glass warmed. Very nice aromas of toasty, almost honey-ish, caramel malt and a honeydew melon-like fruitiness; touch of diacetyl. Sweet toasty caramel malt at the start which carried through to the finish. Mid-palate had a subdued hop flavor and bitterness. Bready character emerged near the finish and lasted briefly into the aftertaste. Aftertaste had a light grainy maltiness along with a gentle bitterness and a melon-like fruitiness. Palate was light to medium bodied with a lively carbonation. A pleasantly easy drinking yet complex ale. I was especially taken by the aroma of this one. Very nice. Thanks Drew!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Paid $1.50 for a single 12floz bottle with a BBD 04.14.2017. Consumed from a mug glass 03.16.2017. What we have here is an amber ale in the Irish tradition, and it does a fine job of being true to style. Albeit a tad high ABV wise. Anyway, it has a copper body with a soft off-white head. A malty beer, where the cereal grains call to order a sweet doughy aroma and flavor. A hearty medium-bodied ale good for late winter/early spring swilling.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is sweet, malty, bready, fruity, potpourri maybe, interesting. Appearance is red, light tan head, hazy. Taste is bready, very very grainy, wheat chaff but not wheat, a weird grainy dry flavor I can’t put my finger on, it’s not bad though. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, grainy aftertaste. Overall, it’s good but I wish I could identify that flavor.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Liquor Barn. This was my first Irish Ale. Lots of malt as advertised, pretty much nothing but cloying malt as far as I could tell.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma wafts with a nice toasted bready flavor, could smell it while pouring the beer. Appearance has a clean filtered body that you can see through the glass, though had a very thin head. Medium carbonation with an oily palate. Boasts of hop aroma/taste but to me was very malt forward. A very clean enjoyable drinking beer.
