    A sixer for under $5, and the beer is decent. Hadn't had this in a long time but I remember enjoying a few back in the day. Pour is light for an amber, little head and no lacing. Real sweet aroma, nice fresh baked breadiness. Thin but an adequate mouthfeel. Flavor is alright, but it's watery which detracts from a nice sweetness. Good bargain but not a great representation.

    A very respectable malty brew. It is has hints of hops which add some variety to what to me is a fairly sweet lager. The mouthfeel is its weakest quality coming off very thin and watery to me. But the look, smell, and taste is quite solid.

    This beer poured a medium amber color topped off with a rocky white head that left pretty good lace. The aroma was sweet and fairly malty with some faint hop bitterness as well. The mouthfeel was very thin considering the style. The flavor is fairly mild with some sweeter, slightly creamy flavors with malts being much more dominant than the lighter hops in the finish.

    Now this brew fooled me for sure because I truly thought this was a Irish brew but low-and-behold, it is brewed in New York so I am not really looking forward to this brew. The aroma is a bit grainy with some creaminess as well as some caramel malt as well as sweetness. The appearance is a deep reddish burgundy with a small head on top that discipates quickly to a light lacing that is off-white in color and leaves some lacing on the glass. The mouthfeel light-bodied with some smoothness but lacks complexity and balance with a palate that is thin. The flavor is sweet and malty with some caramel coming through with some creamy overtones with an aftertaste that is subpar and a bit boring with a finish that is watery. Overall, hardly an average brew here and I wish I would not have bit the bullet today and bought a twelver of this because I don't see myself drinking this quickly and the price was not worth it.

    Uh uh. Another sub-par offering. It's the right amber color, but the aroma is weak, and the taste is pretty watery. My opinion is partly because I've more or less gotten away from ambers, but having said that, one can find much better amber ales without even trying hard. Pay the extra money and take a step up.

    Medium amber colored body with a thin off white head. The aroma is rich with caramel with a hint of coffee and pears. The taste is toffee and some coffee. Thin motuhfeel with light carbonation. This is refreshing but not a great brew.

    This beer is not bad... Its taste has a good bitterness level with a sweet, faint wood taste, and it smells really good, like a fresh cake...??? anyways, not bad at all for the price but, is this true irish amber...?

    Aroma is fairly full, sweet and malty. Pours a nice deep amber color with a good off-white head. Mouthfeel is smooth yet crisp...fairly full. Flavor begins fairly full and malty, with a balanced body, finishing a little bitter. Overall, a clean, malty brew with a high level of drinkability; I have always enjoyed this one.
