COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
litd ed. 750ml bottle release
First brewed in the U.S.A. in 1980s this superb beer has good carbonation and has an excellent flavour profile. Amber in colour, this is a dry, hoppy beer with some caramel flavour. It goes great with spicy food but is also an extremely versatile beer and works perfectly well with most foods, from burritos and burgers to Chinese and chilli..

Thanks to my Greman-Irish connection for schlepping this over to the US in his luggage. Nice strong off-white head of varying sized bubbles. Vanilla and marshmallow are prominent in the flavor along with some light citrusy hops and mild sweet malts. Color is a hazy orangish brown. Lively mouthfeel with lots of flavor. Orange peel, roasted grains, tea leaves, mild bitterness and some bready malts. Quite a lot going on in there. little bit of alcohol presence to keep you honest. Slight astringent palate and is rather dry but the light bitterness/sourness makes the mouth salivate for more. The sweetness denoted in the aroma is not present in the flavor. A pretty good. I am interested in trying some more from this brewer. Guess I need a road trip to Ireland again!! :)
