I had a lot of these on a rough St Patty's day this year, hey with $2 tappers you can't really go wrong. So last night at dinner I had another one to determine if it was as good as my hazy memory could recall.
Well first off there was a price increase that came with getting this beer in a trendy restaurant/bar. Doh! Nice amber color, very little head and that vanished quickly, patchy lacing. A good ale taste to it with very little lingering taste. Yep, I'd rate this as a drinkable beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a bubbly, effervescent clear deep amber red with a foamy, frothy eggshell had that slowly dissipates, leaving sticky lacing.
Floral hops, grain, specialty malt fruitiness, and fruity yeast esters accompany a hint of toasted bread. Becomes very metallic late.
Flavor reveals a toasted, nutty, bready malt backbone, which finishes dry and a touch bitter. There's an underlying ester fruitiness that isn't quite as prominent as in the aroma. Slight metallic notes emerge.
Body is moderate, with moderate to slightly high carbonation and a bit of harsh astringency in the finish.
More malt backbone than expected. The bitterness is a little overly done. The metallic character is offputting. Esters are a little odd, as well.
Serving type: bottle
