MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2005
pours a dark brown w/ a small laced off white head. A dry hop aroma light carmel but pretty weak smell overall. Palate is highly carbonated lightly acidic and lacking in body. Flavor is a weak ultra light malt wheat, and grainy hop. Unoffensive brew but not much to it.

Aroma is very weak, minimal hoppy aroma. This beer won’t blow you away with it’s complexity of it’s flovor either. An above average mass produced ale, Somewhat creamy yet watery. Palate sightly bitter that fades fast. I liked this brew, yet it was not stellar.

Had this first on tap in Ireland, and I thought it was a really solid drinking beer. It loses taste in the bottles for some reason, but still a nice irish beer.

GiBrew (171) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 19, 2005
Golden brown with a creamy head that Lasted a long time. Flavours are very weak - Mostly roasted Hop. Creamy to the palate - but not as much as I was expecting. Very clean finish.

murawski (160) - USA - JUN 19, 2005
Decent Irish ale. Best from the tap, but still nice from the bottle. Mostly uninteresting malty aroma. Medium-bodied, and very drinkable.

MikeT (76) - Hollis, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 18, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2005 Had this on draft at Evos in Lowell MA Nice whyskey brown color with a cream ivory head that thinly laced the pint glass. Smell wass light sweet malt and the taste was mildly sweet malt and just enough hops to offset and balance. A very refreshing ale finished a bit watery, but very tasty and a nice session beer.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2005
Bottle: Pale copper, clear, humongous off-white head, fluffy, extremely sticky lacing, lively carbonation.   Mild toasted malt aroma, not much else.   Malty start, a touch of caramel, slightly sweet.   Moderate body and mouthfeel, nearing the lighter side.   Slight twang on the finish.   Sums up to be light, not terribley flavorable, but quite sessionable.

very dissappointed with this beer. sour aroma, with no punch or character. But you could have a lot worse i guess?

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2005 Tap--Nice copper color, with a small head. No large flavor with a medium body, not special but it’s quite drinkable.
