On tap in an oversized shot glass as part of a flight at Penfield Pour House in Penfield, NY.

Pours a clear, toasty red. 1 inch head, not much lacing.

Very weak, almost non-existent aroma- some English/Irish hop aromas make their way through, plus some mild toasted malt.

Taste doesn't improve a whole lot- it's mildly bitter, with some English earthy hop tastes- slightly vegetal and bitter.

Thin, watery mouthfeel. Decent carbonation.

Not one of my favorite Irish beers.

Rohrbach Patty's Irish-style Cream Ale is a very clear amber beer with a dense, creamy off-white head that has outstanding retention and lacing. It has a fresh, hoppy aroma that's very citrusy-- maybe orange or lime. It's pretty light bodied; smooth and slick with a clean, dry finish. It has a touch of sweetness and it's fairly bitter. There are notes of grass and citrus with a hint of nuttiness. It's very sessionable!
