I have a little bit of Irish blood runny in my veins, so this label caught my eye and decided to give it a try.
I am not sure this is a true "Micro Beer". After doing a little hunting around online, I was surprised to see that this was a Pabst product. I get the impression that this an attempt by a big brewery to try and make a beer that has a micro beer look and feel. Anyway....let's get to the beer.
Pours a dark, dark brown, almost black, but when held up to the light it has a ruby redness to it. A nice one inch head that dissipates quickly, leaving a swirl of milky foam around the edges of the glass. Spotty lacing.
The aroma is nice, but not very complex. I am getting dark roasted malt and that is about it.
Taste is mostly roasted malts, with a hint of bitterness on the back end. Maybe some hints of Carmel and coffee.
Mouth feel is nice, creamy with medium carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall a decent beer. I was not expecting it to be as enjoyable as it was once I found out it was brewed by Pabst. It's an easy drinking beer that I actually would have again.
