Pour warm golden yellow with a thin white head...smell is lightly fruity and grainy,....light grainy flavor...not offensive .

The nice orange copper color led me to believe that this would have some body to it - not so. Very thin and watery, carbonation is the second noticed thing, then thirdly, a thin caramel along the sides of the tongue.

On tap- Served a black color with a nice tan head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of malt with a trace of caramel. There is also a bit of coffee and nut in the background. Taste of malt, coffee and some bittersweet chocolate. There is a nice bitterness throughout and a dry finish. Medium body, crisp and smooth. Nice balance. Easy drinker, nice beer for the style. I think having this on tap at an Irish pub enhances the character of this beer.

Black color, with only a bit of light coming through. Light head and medium body. Modest aroma, but lots of roasted malt flavor---especially for a lager.

GABF '03 Amber in color, mild aroma of malt.Caramel flavor comes through,very thin and unfufilling.

veyr smooth, very sweet. Not much character at all. I could drink this beer again but I probably won’t....unless its free. Worth a try though.

Draft at McSorley’s (NYC). Not a lot of flavor or aroma to the beer, but the surrounding environment somehow help to make it enjoyable. There are some grassy hop notes and a slight green apple flavor to it, but not much else I can remember.

2.6
Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 18, 2003
Faint metallic light grain nose. Small, quickly dissipating head. Clear amber hue. Light caramel accents...very thin bodied, not much flavor. Blah...

Hmmm. Fairly typical Irish lager. Malty nose. Malty taste. A bit thin on the palate. Meh. Not great, but not bad.

Copper color, stale malty taste that jumps out at you. No hops seem present to balance it.
