Review of Finnegan’s Irish Amber Ale
Finnegan’s Amber Ale is one of my go to beers when I’m looking for something a little bit lighter on a hot summer day or when I’m just really damn thirsty. Subtle hop aroma and caramel flavors are laced with a potato sweetness. I guess to really taste the potatoes that this brew is made with you have to have tried a raw potato. Try it, its there. The beer is lighter, crispy and smooth to drink. The beer isn’t exploding with flavor or texture or anything, but it strikes me on another level of satisfaction. Finnegan’s is a for profit company that uses all of its profits to help their local communities. It is amazing that a company like this is run completely by volunteers except for the lady in charge, Jacquie Berglund. Check out her story, its pretty cool. Well enough with the lesson…let’s talk brews!
