Top o' the mornin'! Poured into a plastic cup a couple hours before walking with the O'Tux Society in the Mal's St. Paddy's Day parade, Jackson, MS.
A: dark amber, producing a tan, two finger head that lingers with big bubbles in its wake.
S: nice and malty. A hint of caramel.
T: ...and so goes the malts.A semi-dry finish. Smooth, light; perfect for an Irish breakfast.
M: medium with medium, frothy carbonation. Produced a fine, Irish mustache.
O: A very sessionable Irish ale. Perfect for calming down the demons in a Guiness Extra Stout.
Serving type: bottle

Poured from an 11.2 ounce Euro-brown bottle into a shaker pint. A moderate pour produces about one inch of a creamy, pale tan head that proves quite sticky. The color is a deep copper with high carbonation.
I perceive that old familiar aroma of minerals and faint, tea-like hops that distinguish many of these beers from the Brittanic isles. The flavor is malty and a little sweet but with a fairly dry finish. The malt tastes of caramel, but hints of a honey-like quality can be detected as well. The body is medium thin and lager-like, but with a creamy mouth feel from the head and carbonation. A little bit of grassy hop bitterness settles on the tongue.
This is a fairly light, sessionable and refreshing beer but with a good deal of flavor. Nothing special, but nothing overbearing or off-putting- just an all around good beer. Bought as part of a six pack for about $8.50 (on sale) at Hennessey Market in uptown Butte. Believe it or not, this is a fairly rare beer to find in these parts.
