Poured a dark murky brownish red with a two finger head that quickly disappeared. The aroma was sweet and malty with a trace of hops. This ale was way too cloying. A rich malt sweetness that never allowed the hops take hold. From the beginning to end this ale remained out of balance. Irish ales should provide enough bitterness to balance the heavy malt bill. A strange, cloying after taste was evident in the finish. This a an ale to avoid.
