COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This authentic amber Irish ale is slow brewed with a blend of three malted barleys and finished with four varieties of hops. Then we dry-hopped in the lager tank to add a spicy note to warm your winter evenings. Expect this beer to be a beautiful copper-red, with a fruity ale body and a spiced hop finish.

Light red color. Pretty strong fruity malty smell. Nice light crisp flavor. Great balance of malt and hops. Just a touch of fruityness. Very smooth and refreshing.

Candy sweet, mild, decent consistency and minimal hop. i was expecting more malt but really this is fine. almost too mild tbh

A clear dark amber with a generous collar of fine ivory foam. It's a vibrant old-worldish malt backbone with assertive hops as well. Too fresh and resolute to feel European. A bit of nut spice and holiday tasting. The feel is crisp with a lingering mild piquancy, after a medium light body feel, slightly round, barely creamy. There's either not much here or a whole world to dive into depending on your willingness to travel. This beer has carved out a unique and wonderful place among today's converging options. Joy.

Pours a clear copper red on tap with bubbly off-white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of clean toasted malt and nuttiness with a light fruity ester and earthy spicy hop not. Taste is less intense than the nose, but still some solid fruity esters over toasted malts and earthy hop. Solid for what it is, seems to be the theme of the brewery.

"courtesy of pfoxyjohn. for a style that usually lack punch, this was a tasty sessionable alternative. rich malts combined with just enough floral hops makes this one stand out from the crowd (of reds and ambers at least). Blew away the Bells Amber I had the other day..."

Deep amber with a thick, light tan head. Scent is sweet caramel, nuts, spice. Creamy caramel, apple malts... Thick and sweet, Mild, holiday-style spicing. Very good.

12 oz bottle pours copper with a little head. Aroma is malty and fruity. Taste is a bit different for the style. A little spicy. Good bitterness. Thin body and a moderately bitter finish. Not bad.

shrubber85 (11618) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle. Lactic caramel malt aroma. Clear amber with with large off-white head. Mildly sweet apple and very light caramel malt flavor. Lightly bitter hay finish. Okay but malt flavor pretty subdued.

bottle. Amber with one finger head. Medium malt body. This strikes me as very earthy with a fair amount of crystal malt. I think it’s rather well done, but the flavors are not ones that I enjoy much.
