This seems to me to be a great session ale. Pours a clear amber-red, with a thin head, leaving some faint lacing behind. The aroma is very sweet, but that is not reflected in the beer itself. Nothing in the taste really stands out to me, but overall it is a good solid beer.

12 oz bottle best by 03/20/07 from Trooper11. Amber orange with a beige head. Lightly toasted rye nose. Rye bread flavors, very light nut notes, followed by a mild, bready, herbal bitter finish. Nice!

Beautiful shining clear and bold copper colored body. Nose is peat and overipe bananas. Taste is straight caramel malts with a light banana yogurt flavor. Body is moderately fizzy.

pretty brown. darker than an ipa but translucent. good half-inch head. smells of octoberfest-type malts. pretty strong. unexceptional body/texture. kinda a less malty bock/octoberfest. yeah, surprisingly lagerish. apparently, this bottle is really old. i suppose i’ll rerate it some day.

Very good irish ale, much better to my taste than a Killians, or Legacy red. Look forward to this one coming around again.

Not a bad irish ale, but not that great either. The pour was a reddish-brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was hoppy and somewhat floral. The taste is definitely bitter, with a bitter finish. I was hoping for more of a malt presence, but very little was detected."

Another solide creation from Great Lakes. I am not a fan of irish ales so this one caugt me off guard. Starts with a light citrusy aroma and has a light colour. Taste is hoppier than other Irish ales which is a plus. Finish is clean and crisp. Well done

Bottle shared with Blankboy, Hogtown Harry, and Dave, courtesy of Harry. Nice dark yellow, small orange head. Bready, tea like aroma - some hops. Nice taste - lots of malt and light hops. Would be a regular local session ale for me in the area. Nice Irish ale, add this to my small list of beers with Irish names that are actually good! (Loved the label and story on the bottle btw).

thanks again heemer. flavor is irish red ale, thin with some carmel some mild hops and some yeast. not a ton going on in this one, could use a bit more complexity.
