Enjoyed at the brewery.

A - Poured a crystal clear honey amber hue with a nice tan head that fades to leave thin wisps and light lacing.

S - Aromas of light caramel malts, lightly grassy notes.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, nice light bitterness, there is good caramel notes, nice earthy hops with good floral notes.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, clean finish.

O - Overall this was a solid Irish English pale ale.

Serving type: on tap

Huge head--7/8 of the glass. It settles slowly in a rocky fashion way. Large chunks of foam stick to the glass throughout the taste. The liquid is a muddy, light brown.

A bit of yeast, a bit of earth. This is what the beer smells like. I note some chalkiness and light hop in the background.

All of the aroma elements come out in the taste, but I would say the flavor is superior to what I smelled. Reminds me of a very hoppy, Amber homebrew I once made. Lots of yeast on the tongue. Rich body, but with an elevated carbonation.

Bottle from Bert's
Mostly clear orange amber color with a smallish off white head. I got this weird spearmint or peppermint aroma when I first stuck my nose over this but that seems to have faded. Rich sugary maltiness with a strong earthy mineral presence. Says it dry hopped, but I can't find much in the way of hops. Maybe a bit of lingering bitterness. Not a fan.

From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on March 27, 2015.

Good looking medium amber-bronze colored pour with modest off-white head that becomes a ring.

The aroma is mainly toasted caramel malts but I keep picking up this sort of pear or apple thing that makes no sense. But there you have it.

The body is around medium but smooth.

The taste is more focused on the toasted malts and there is a keen bittertness to wind things down at the finish.

I've added this beer but certain categories were not available to select. This beer is collaboration with Rising Sons brewery in Cork, Ireland. Also the style is an Irish Pale Ale.

A - A vigorous pour raises a bubbly tan head over a cloudy deep amber body. Really good retention with nice sudsy lacing.

S - dark caramel, toasted and sweet with some spiciness

T - smoky, earthy, grassy, Irish peat? Really nice flavors at the start followed by big chocolate sweetness. Slightly bitter citrus in the aftertaste.

M - medium body with moderate fine carbonation. Very smooth and creamy.

O - this was a great surprise. Very different from other pale ale styles. I really enjoyed the flavors and especially the silky smooth mouthfeel. I'm glad to find such a great beer being brewed in my home town.
