UPDATED: MAR 18, 2006 Gravity Fed Cask... Poured a copper red color, with a thin off white head, that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus hops, and very light caramel. Taste of carmel, earthy citrus fruits, some grapefruit, and a bitter hop finish. Creamy mouthfeel. beastiefan2k (4053) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Oh no love for this well made brew, Tap @ Blind Tiger. Malty and earthy aroma, very authentic Irish Ale representation. Then finishes with a touch of burnt sweetness. Taste is dry and earthy with light soil bitterness. I was very surprised by how well this came out and would drink it again for sure. robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2011

Mini-growler from Half-Time. Pours a clear dark ruby brown with a medium tanned beige head that falls off quickly. Sweet and malty, touch of smoke, and a lot of caramel, toffee, butter, and biscuit.. Medium body, light smoky malt. Finishes with a bit more sweetness, and a touch of bitterness. Pretty tasty actually. cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2011

Tap at Royersford. Malts are very apparent. Nice flavor. I was not really able to detect much from the hops, but overall, not a bad beverage.
