12oz bottle had a friend's house. Pours a clear light copper color with small sheets of lace on top. Mild sticky lace clings to the glass. Aroma of light citrus, sweet malt, husk. Crisp clean feel. Easy drinking with a good amount of bubble play. Simple flavors with a mild bitter smack. Some residual sweetness balances it out. Touch of fruit and alcohol as well. Not a bad little Irish beer. I'd gladly drink this one with a steaming bowl of Irish stew!

For lack of anything more exotic at a local restaurant went to this acceptable go-to

A: Reddish/amber, clear, 1 finger white head

S: Some malty/caramel, not much else

T: Moderate malt taste slight caramel, not too much else that stands out, definitely muted on the hops side

M: Thin, moderate carbonation

O: A decent average beer, certainly beats almost all other American tap offerings
