Poured from the bottle into a pub glass, then covered with Murphys Irish Stout poured over a spoon. Served at 45F. IMO its a real Black-n-Tan upgrade, becoming a St Paddys Day tradition around here...

Well, just now reviewing this ale but it is one I've enjoyed for years in many ways. Whether draft or bottle, alone or in a session, by itself or as mentioned above; this has stood for a good quality pale ale all along. Craft beer stalwart!

A - Coppery with an off-white head. Mildly carbonated, leaves a thin amount of lacing down the glass.

S - Hoppy and mildly citrus.

T - Always tastes fresh, nice hop flavors span from the citrus to slightly peppery.

M - Crisp and easy drinking since it doesn't linger too long on the palate.

O - There are others out there with more craftsmanship, and more interesting offerings too. For a beer than can be had so readily its still a great one.
