The First of my beers of the night at Finnegan's Irish pub. Fortunately for the day we were there, it was $2 pints and I didn't even realize until after ordering! A big 16 Oz pint that went quickly as we sat writing our notes at the bar. Thanks to Todd for being a great bartender.
Mouthfeel: Apart from the look, this beer did pack a fuller body than most lagers. Medium body with a poorly low carbonation. A little stickiness and mild crisping element. Not drying. Smooth drinking lager.
Overall Impression: I'd admit I very much disliked this beer upon the first couple sips. It was plain and uneventful, it didn't exhibit much aroma until several gulps in. As it warmed and the taste buds became accustomed, it blossomed into a strong complexity that truly did distinguish it from other drinking lagers and econo-beers. But the low carbonation and that warm-like astringency of Bud and Coors was the biggest deterrence.
