From a brown 12 oz bottle, it pours amber with a medium off-white head. The smell is a bit of caramel with a trace of metallic smell in the background. The taste also has notes of caramel and the metallic smell carries over into the taste. Hops are on the light side, even for a purportedly Irish style ale. It's not particularly interesting but not offensive either. Two was about the limit on this one.

From the tap, pours nice amber with rich, creamy head that lasts a bit.
Smell is neutral, a bit of grains, but mild.
Light, balanced flavor. Caramel, make presence, a bit of bitter hops, some alcohol burn on the finish, but only mildly.
Easy to drink, light and crisp, clean finish.

341ml bottle poured into a 16oz pint glass.
A - Big frothy light tan head. The beer is a nice clean amber-red hue. Good head retention with some nice lacing.
S - Really nutty. Lots of peanuts and caramel malt. It's simple, but appealing. A nice hearty malty aroma.
T - Caramel malt and nutty character don't translate quite as well as I was hoping. A little metallic. Finishes with a slight hop astringency and alcohol warmth. A lot more nutty than expected, with a slight sweetness to it as well. Overall a nice malty profile, that's drinkable but not exceptional.
M - Light-to-medium carbonation, done fairly well. Body is about medium. Pretty smooth feel. Nice finish.
D - A nice easy drinking ale with a malty profile. Nothing exceptional, but it's something I could see myself trying again. Not too bad.
