Pours well from bottle to pint glass. Head is nice and thick, taking a while to settle. It is not a very sweet Irish Ale, it is a malty ale, with a somewhat bitter finish. This is a full flavoured beer, that is neither overly filling or too complex. This is a great beer from bottle or tap.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: a thick fluffy off white head recedes at a glacial pace with some fine lacing. Color is a somewhat cloudy reddish amber with plenty of yeast in suspension. Very little streaming carbonation.
Aroma: bready malts dominate the aroma, with some caramel sweetness, a bit of fruit, and some pungent hops.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, fluffy, and sticky with a somewhat wet finish.
Flavor: toasted bread crust, raisins, caramel, a bit of grassiness, and a strong, lingering hop bitterness in the middle and finish.
Overall: this is an above average, but not outstanding, offering.
