Crisp and cool with a hop bite under the kilt. I'd sell my soul to the Blarney Stone to drink this brew above the fog--Spitting on Long-shanks while picking breakfast Haggis out of my dentures.
Smell: Sweet malt, nutty, clean.
Taste: Incredibly drinkable and well balanced. Light malt sweetness up front followed by an extremely pleasant hop aftertaste. Bright and clean flavors unadulterated by any heavy bread like notes, or unpleasant astringency. Stable from start to finish.
Appearance: Reddish-copper almost carnelian in color; clear with no haze. Medium head, medium carbonation.
It only took one Gaelic Ale before organizing a small militia amongst my neighbors to fight against big beer and praise craft brew FFRRREEEDDDOOOMMM!!!

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a small head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color beer with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Bready and caramel malts, tangerine, grapefruit, and other citrus aromas. Smells nice.
Taste: A lot of oat and bready malts, followed by some caramel malts, bitterness, and a bit of citrus hops.
Mouthfeel: Chewy, smooth, medium bodied, and medium to high carbonation.
Overall: A nice amber/red ale. I have hoppier versions from other breweries, but this one firs the suit. Top bad I can't get my hands on another bottle anytime soon.

a: slightly hazy reddish brown body. an inch of off white creamy foam settles leaving a small amount of lacing.
s: lightly toasted bready malts, touch of floral hops in the background.
t: sweet bread and toast. hops are almost not there. just a touch of spice on the finish.
m: medium body, creamy, carbonation is spot on.
o: very drinkable. very well balanced between the malts and hops. just nothing about it makes it stand out against the others in the same category.
