Petite bouteille, merci pour le cadeau. 03-20-2015. Une robe cuivrée foncée à la limite d’être brune. Un nez tout en malt avec des arômes de caramel. Une bouche quelque peu sucrée et très malté. Une bière pour amateur de malt crystal et caramel.

Bottle (12 oz). Hotel Room Tasting. From Russ, thanks!

Appearance: Clear bright golden-orange with a smalll bubbly white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Light caramel, toasted notes, mineral/earthy presence, grains and light fruitiness.

Taste: A bit fruitier than the aroma, but other than that it’s very similar. Light caramel, toasted malts, mineral/earthy notes and grains.

Palate: Light to medium body. Moderate to medium carbonation. Mineral finish.

Overall: Decent Iris ale, but still an Irish ale. A bit bland, but ok drinkability and nothing really off.

Pours a light copper with a small white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of cereals with a slightly atypical "wheat germ" reminescence to it. Taste is lightly sweet and features some nice toasted cereals and almost no husk. Body and carbonation are medium. Overall a good irish ale, I must confess that I usually don’t appreciate them that much but this one was actually quite enjoyable!

Draft at Hackers in Akron. Pint glass was a moderate copper with a light head. The aroma is nuts, slight roasted malts, caramel, and bread. Taste was bread, cereal, roasted malts, walnuts, and caramel. Slight buttery and slick. Not bad.

Honey is the flavor that dominates here, some fruit as well, and a little bit of bread or biscuit or something similar. Decent.

Bottle. Poured beautiful amber, with white head. Very fizzy and carbonated with active mouthfeel. A crisp and light flavor. Not malty as described, but with some barley and hops. Very light and easy to drink.

For the past few winters I’ve found myself drinking Conway’s Irish Ale. I know why, copper body, malty, light hops come together into a palatable beer. Surprised I haven’t rated this Irish Ale from Great Lakes sooner.
