COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Long Irelands first release. This beer is old world Irish ale; this isnt designed to be an Irish Red. Its brewed with ingredients based on how beer was brewed a few hundred years ago in Ireland. Since Ireland is an island, ingredients werent always readily available. The Irish brewers used ingredients that they were able to get locally. This beer is made with 4 different malts and a big serving of honey and oats that give it a sweet but smooth flavor. Its 5% a.b.v. And 20 I.b.u.s.

Formerly at 6.4% and brewed at New England until the opening of their own plant.

ben4321 (5891) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Location: Sampled at the NY Brewfest on Governors Island, 6/19/10

Aroma: The nose has some caramel, toffee, toast, yeast, and a bit of spice
Appearance: This is an amber-brown colored beer with a small tan head
Flavor: The taste is fairly malty, somewhat sweet, lots of caramel, and a bit of spice
Palate: It has a light-medium body, fairly sessionable, and drinks pretty nicely
Overall Impression: A halfway decent Irish Ale. Nothing overly special, but a solid example of the style in my opinion. Overall, I thought the beers I tried from this brewery at the festival were pretty good, and I look forward to getting a hold of some more of their stuff in the future.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 Sampled at the Long Ireland tent at Brewfest NYC 2010 on Gov Island. A solid irish ale with some decent flavor that shows promise for sessionability. Super light hop thats pretty much dominated by a clean sweet malt character.

Draft sample at NY Brew Fest 2010. Pours amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of cinnamon, sweet malts, and bready/yeasty notes. Thin bodied with a sweet, soft palate. Average Irish ale. I concur with Pwn3d. The standard Long Ireland Pale Ale was much better.

Sampled during Brew Fest 2010 on Governors Island. I didnt like this as much as the Pale Ale, which I cant find on RB. This was much more mellow, with some nice honey notes. Good brewery description, not your traditional Irish Red.

Growler fill from PJ Beverage: red/brown color, sweet caramel, sugary. apricots and some burnt sugar. arouma is grainy. smooth mouthfeel and nice carboonation. Nice hoppy bite, and pine notes. Also getting some throat-tingling pepper notes towards the middle. Nice. Im expecting some nice things from this brewery. Hopefully, theyll ramp up distributions.

Pours a deep amber with some nice notes of malts. The malt rolls into a decent base with some light hops that finish it at the end.

The aroma is honey, caramel, nuts. The appearance is a red/gold color, more gold, white head. The flavor is toasted malt, caramel. The finish is a vague noble hop bitterness. Medium bodied. Not bad.
