A high quality brew. Very easy to drink, pours beautifully, goes down smoothly with little or no aftertaste for a brew with a decently high ABV.

As past reviewers have stated, its a hard brew to describe outside of the fact that is just a damn good brew. Another highly recommendable brew from a great brewery.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

An off white head is formed barely managing a finger of size. Body color is a hazy red dull amber, with some very faint small rising carbonation on the middle.

Nose smells like a sort of Munich malts, Oktoberfest beer. Slightly rich, but a little subdued. Faint airy hop but just barely.

Palate brings a stinky malt crispness. Almost getting into Irish ale tasting territory, very interesting. Very prickly feeling in the palate which is a bit jarring. Stinky tacky aftertaste, sort of gamey.

What an interesting amber ale, somewhere smelling Munich and tasting all Irish, and feeling like a crisp lager. However, it isn't so interesting that I would want to have it again.
