3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft. Pours a dark copper color with practically no head. Faint caramel malt aroma. Flavor is mildly bitter caramel malts. Some bitterness remains in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light and watery. Nothing bad about Smithwick’s but very pedestrian.

Got this one from the St-Pat’s promotion at LCBO. Strong taste for a ’light’ beer. Must be the barley. Tasty beer and easy going. I like.

Aroma is metallic, earthy hops, slight caramel, a little dark fruit, eh. Appearance is amber, light tan head, clear. Taste is light, earthy hops, caramel, watery, metallic, not great. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light, bubbly carbonation, earthy hop caramel water aftertaste. Overall, not especially impressive, but easily crushed.

dark red color. Looked promising but failed miserably. There’s next to nothing going on here. Very light ale. If Budweisier made an Ale, this would be it. Wouldn’t get this again.

Pours dark red with a nice head and good lacing. Tastes of caramel, breadiness, slight floral and nuts. Not bad for a light ALC beer. Great if I need to drive heavy equipment at work. lol, just kidding! ;)

This "Premium" ale gives a huge short lived head. Has no smell and is quite bland. This is not one I’ll be purchasing again.

Draught at several in County Sligo. An incredibly drinkable ale and one eh at has enough taste to back it up. A strange Guinness-esque foam when poured. Can be tinny after other more powerful beers. One to go the distance, my Irish Doombar.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught. (backlog) Deep amber colour with a small white head. Aroma is sweet malts, some toffee, mild wood as well as some herbal notes. Flavour is sweet malts, mild grains as well as some slight floral and wooden notes in the finish. Smooth, but nothing to really write home about.

11.2 Fl Oz. bottle
Red brown with good head.
Malty/grainy aroma but also oxidized.
Medium bitterness. Some malt but I expected more and the oxidation didn’t help metters.
(Date code on bottle was L6057GD004 whatever this means ???).
