I got aggressive mid-pour and still only got half a finger of off white head. Body is a a burning copper orange color that could nearly top the head of any red blooded Irish person. Very few bubbles rising to the top of this beer, and no real lacing.

Smells of toasted malt and something sweet and fruity, with just the faintest whiffs of caramel.

Light toasted malt starts her off, then goes into a very rich biscuit flavor. A little caramel in the middle, and a spicy, slightly hoppy ending make for an enjoyable experience.

This beer is medium bodied and very sweet but not sticky. Washes down clean.

Bright, clear, copper pour, with a nice rich, tidy, cream head. Nothing notable in the nose, just some faint sweet grass. Tinny and sweet malts are wrapped around a bouquet of juicy fruit. Picking up hints of orange, lemon and some more of that grass that I smelled. The creamy, watery mouthfeel follows nicely with style. First time trying this, and I found it an interesting and damn fine example. I have come to expect great "ness" from this brewery and it continues to not disappoint.
