2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
on tap-Pours a clear amber-copper with a big, off white head. Smells creamy-malty and lightly sweet. Taste has a crisp maltiness and a bit of hops, although I didn’t care for the taste that much, not quite up to my expectations from comments most of my buddies have made that enjoy it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep clear copper with a big, frothy, creamy ivory head. Lots of nice lacing. Good looking brew. Smells creamy and lightly sweet. Fruoty malt and light hops.
Taste is dominated b a bready crisp maltiness with some underlying hops to offset the sweetness. That’s about it for the flavor, very straightforward beer. Lightly bitter aftertaste and a bt thin in the mouth. Easy drinker but somehow doesn’t put it all together to be anything distinctive.

On draught at Tigin in Stamford. Pours out red with a small dissipating head. Taste starts out on the grassy side and finished on the nutty end. Not bad for a session ale.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2005 The aroma has some floral hops as well as some caramel. The appearance is a copper red brown with a good white head. The flavor was bitter from the hops but also had caramel as well as toffee taste in it. Overall its nice, the taste was good but not as full bodied as I would have liked. The aftertaste was nutty with the malt and hops again coming through.

Not bad at all. Pours a medium-dark reddish brown with a nice, thick tan head. Nutty, earthy aroma and flavor, I couldn’t quite put my finger on. Smooth palate, but not watery. The bartender said that this stuff is what they modeled Killian’s Irish Red after.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
not bad, dark amber color, and a head that hangs around, this beer tastes a little thin, but drinkable.

Looks nice, dark amber with a persistent head. But the aroma and flavor are off, It’s kinda a burnt organic flavor, like burning leaves or moss or something. Also has a slightly metallic aftertaste. It is drinkable though, just not quite at par with better ales.
