Bottle at Kookfest 06. Amber colour, no head. Some hop, some herb. Malt is ok if a little candy sugarish. Bit like a French amber beer.

A little hoppy and a little fruity, I would have to say this beer is Gae. In all seriousness, a decent drink.

Bottle. Pours a medium amber color with a smallish head. Aroma is mostly the malts, with some citrusy hoppy notes. Flavors of citrus, malts and dough. Fairly clean and refreshing, but not something that stands out.

Lots of malty sweetness and body. Hints of caramel. Nice, but still not amazing me yet.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2006
12 oz bottle: Medium copper w/ a short lived off white head. Herbal hop aroma with caramel mallt and a light coffee roastiness. Toasty malt as it gets warm. Pretty clean of fruitiness. Well balanced w/a light roasty and caramel flavor, but all very light. Herbal hop is light, and the overall flavor profile is very thin. Medium carbonation, smooth, lighter body. The impression I get is macro brewed amber lager, clean, liittle fruitiness, and a bit boring.

I got this on a trip to North Carolina. Rating based on bottle, thougjh I had it on draft there as well. Coppery in color, with a decent head that fades in little time. Aroma is malty and a bit metallic and alcoholic. Flavor fruity and malty at first, but the hops quickly overwhelm everything else. One question: why is this called Gaelic ale? I though Gaelic was a language.

Pours amber with a thin light tan head. Aroma is bready, lightly sweet and malty, with aromatic toasted malts and a very subtle hint of pine. This beer tastes almost like a malty, bready German lager, with well balanced herbal hoppiness. Very neutral ale yeast playing little role in the taste. Mouthfeel is medium/full bodied with moderate carbonation. This is a great beer from one of my favorite cities.
