3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours deep reddish, with a good head. Smells of malt, toffee, and some hops. Tastes VERY dry, with malt and bitterness (a malty bitter, not a hop bitter). Finishes malty, dry, and bitter. This one reminds me of an English mild ale somewhat. Decent, but I'll stick with the Murphy's stout.

4/2/04: On tap in Arlington, VA.
Red-brown body with very little head. Tastes include malt with a touch of hops. I think this would have been better had it not been for the tin/metallic aftertaste.

a nice surprise .. hoppy with an outhouse hint aroma, beautiful red amber colour with a big head. Taste was fresh and hoppy ... not so bad at all!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Average Irish ale - medium red/copper body, clear, poured with a nice head, quickly gone. Medium bodied malts, slightly over carbonated - a little too fizzy. Hints of metal in the hop department; finishes sweet.

Frothy head that quickly disappears. Mild hoppy flavor. Deep brownish red color, light carbonation. I would recomend over any macro red.

on tap: other rate speak of nitro tap. this was regular CO2? but not a bad amber , mostly malt character, with a slight hop backbone, but nothing to really talk about. i would much rather have the stout. im looking for the nitro tap thought...
