Had this beer on-tap at Finnegan's Wake in town for lunch. Came out a crystal clear pale gold with a thin white head on top. Light lace left behind. The nose was basic: some light grains, buttered-bread, faint hops. Nice crisp clean mouth on it. Refreshing. Nice grainy breads in the flavor, hints of bitter hops, and a smooth sweet finish. This paired very well with my Irish fare. Not a bad beer. I liked it.

Won a bet with my boss pertaining to the Milwaukee Bucks winning more than 35 games. He owed me a six pack and asked me what I wanted. I couldn't be honest and say "how about a four pack of Three Philosophers." He knows that I am really into beers so I just told him to go in the store and pick out anything that he thought maybe be different or "wierd". He set down a six-pack of Harp. What could I say, it could be a lot worse or a lot better. I guess my thoughts of the bet settlement sum up the taste of this beer. It could be a lot better, but it isn't all that bad. This is a very nice crowd pleaser and doesn't taste too bad after a long week of work.

Poured a one finger head from a twelve ounce bottle into a glass. A nice golden color to it. As I check my notes I realize I have made no notes regarding the aroma. The lacing held nicely to the glass as I drank it down. Bitter hop taste with a nice crisp finish. Honestly a little less than I remember from drinking this beer years ago. Don't get me wrong, this beer is much superior to BMC but inferior to the american craft beers in general. Times have changed I suppose.
