Roasty in flavor and in aroma.There is a hint of caramel. Great look to it. Dark bronze, with a red tint? A nice off-white head that stays long. A strong malt palate throughout, although, a slight bit watery. Another Great Lakes winner. Drink up!

Enormous initial head, looks roasty, light colour. Very fresh draft-lkike taste. A bit of roast and alcohol in aroma, fairly neutral. Mild, creamyish mouthfeel, light body close to watery. Easy drink, bitter with mild roastiness.

Pretty, crystal-clear reddish-orange body...Refreshing, slightly fruity and dry aroma - very light. The flavor has a hint of fruitiness as well, something I’d appreciate in warmer weather, as in general, the flavor is very light a delicate. Very malty, and gentle on the hops. Pretty thin. Not a bad beer, just nothing to write home about.

Thanks to OhioDad for this - clear strawberry color, nice lacing - light fruits and caramel in the aroma, along with a somewhat toasty smell - crisp, yet heavy on the malt sweetness - a roastiness and moderate hop bitterness tries to balance this, but doesn’t quite get the job done - not bad.

Pours a crisp clear copper color with a lot of small bubbles and a nice medium layer of froathy white head. Aroma is caramel malts mixed with some fruity, almost grapey esters. Flavor is very smooth, very very malty and sweet, a little too much so for me. Overall, decent enough, but i had hoped for a bit more.

Thanks OHIODAD!. Nice orange pour with a fizzy caramel head. Nose is caramel and malts. The after taste is pleasant, no hint of alcohol Good brew here, but from a brewery that kicks butt, so no surprise!

This is an AWESOME beer, from the best brewery on Earth. Excellent smooth full flavor, rich on the palate, witha great aroma. A hint of sweetness, alot of malt. A gorgeous red color, It’s one fault is a fast fading head.

Pours a coppery amber color with a medium sized white head. Aroma is malty with hints of sweet flowers and sweet fruit. Flavor is a combination of malt and fruit, not too sweet though. Tastes like a slightly sweet lager. Not bad.

Very well done, domestic example of Irish Red Ale, a little more "beef" than a traditional example. Pours to a beautiful, deep amber to red color, with a white head that fades, and a good carbonation. Palate is firm, with good sweet and pale malt flavor, with a touch of buttery flavor. Finishes with good sweet and toasty/buttery malt flavor up front, then ends with a tangy hop bite that lingers. Aromas and flavors a touch bolder than a traditional example, but a tasty one. A must try on draught at the brewpub, and a nice take away beer in the bottle.
