While it may lack the depth of taste of a truly good craft beer, it remains one of my gateway beers to the Craft scene. After not having one in a while, it's still a good beer, especially at an Irish theme bar!

A decent beer. A serious brew head would give it a low score but it is a good adventure beer for folks looking for something light but different.
