Very disappointing. This was one of the "better" beers at the bar I was at. Both cold and warm, all I got was a slight bitterness. A little hop bitterness but otherwise very bland. At least it was refreshing.

Had this during the St. Pats day rounds. Slight malt nut aroma, dry malt bitter taste a little sweet fruit in aftertaste at first, but it quickly dried out and became bitter. Probaly a good beer to go with your corned beef, but not interesting enough to reflect on by itself

Deep clear ruby pour with copious offwhite head and decent lacing. Strong rich malty aroma. Flavors of dry bread, yeast and light caramel malt. The strong dry oak and bitter finish kind of bother’s me, but is probably typical for the style. Leaves too much of a bitterish astringent aftertaste for me.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2005
I don’t get anything in this beer. No malts, no hops, no flavor, nothing much interesting at all.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Nice looking copper colored brew with a creamy two fingered head and excellent lacing. Mild aroma-slightly acidic and toasty. Light bodied and dryish with a hint of caramel and a faint roasted note in the malt and a citrus peel bitterness. A little thin but decent tasting.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2005
Brown with a nice white head. Aroma subdued somewhat malty and nutty. Flavor is doimated by a toasty, nutty maltiness. A bit of hops in the finish. Nothing to write home about.

3.2
mjg74 (3106) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Pours a clear brownish color. Bitter malty flavor. Fairly full flavor roastiness. Nothing great, but it has enough flavor to keep me interested.
