Good Irish Ale. Creamy but not too heavy. Dark amber color, malty head. Slight hint of cocoa on the backside. Delight!

Poured from the tap. The appearance is a clear light brown color with a large white head. The aroma is full of grains and has a slight sweet scent. The taste is a very good blended grain flavor.
