ugh. Basic amber color with a fairly nice off-white head. This tastes like wet grain with faint hints of rotting fruit and metal. Gross. ucusty (2693) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 17, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2009 Clear garnet pour with thick off white head and honey comb esque lace. Aroma is overly grainy. Sweet caramel malts up front. Grain, hops and a slightly bitter finish. joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Reddish gold color, creamy whitish head. Aroma and taste are both on the sweet side. The best part of this beer what that I enjoyed it at Finnegan’s Wake, while listening to the legendary WolfeTones! MrBunn (2868) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Bottle. Apart from being pretty honored to be the second rater of this gem, I’m wondering just how many labels Lion will come out with in my lifetime. And second, will they ever find a way to distribute them so more than 50 raters are able to find them? Anyhow, pours a kind of darkish copper with a small fizzy head. Aromas are Irish like. Creamy caramel malt and some tea and kind of metallic hops presences. While flavor isn’t great, it is fairly solid and this would make an acceptable session brew. The iced tea and metal from the nose come through just strong enough to hold it back and I went back and forth on the flavor as a 6 or 7... I arbitrarily put 7 since St. Patty’s is coming up. Mouthfeel is fairly silky and this is a fairly pleasant experience. SSSteve (4006) - - MAR 8, 2009
clear reddish copper under a small creamy white head. tea, vegetal, buttery toffee aroma. malt dominated with a grainy tea-like flavors up front ending in a buttery toffee finish light bodied and thin palate.
