Hazy ice tea red color. Aroma was of caramel and light roasted malt. The taste was the same with light bitter finish. Pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask. Smells of faint malts and mild berries. Taste very mild, sweet and toffeeish. Like countless other ambers nationwide but for the subtle berry/pear notes.

Pours a very cloudy amber. Flavor is evenly balanced. Nice level of malts with almost a caramel covered apple tone to the flavor. Feel has a full carbonation and a good liquid bodt as well. This is very easy to drink and I could easily have gone for more.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy red. Smell of sweet malt but tastes more on the sour side. Not bad but I think the lines might have been funky.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
You can tell from the other ratings that this beer is quite distinct and flavorful and sets itself apart quite well. :P Its true, the beer is quite bland and hard to describe as a result. Served on cask. Lightly bitter with lasting head. Slighty, yeast-filled finish. Fairly mild, somewhat bland. Nothing offensive but I'd get someething else from GL if I went again.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber color with strong red hues. Average size white head. Mainly malty and caramel aroma with a hint of hops! (shocking for the GLI!) Flavor adds a little spicyness. Dry palate.

Growler: Poured a dark hazy amber color with a medium head. The aroma was nice with hint of caramel malts. The flavor was mally and sweet with a nice balance and finish. Overall I was please, as this was one you could drink a few and not get tired.
