In Chicago on St. Pat’s Day, some of the bars will actually dye macro-swill green for the celebration. They’d be doing the day a greater honor by serving some of this baby. Beautiful red-orange color with a creamy cream-colored head, this has a hoppy, toasty, sweet malt aroma that entices. It’s got a creamy-yet-carbonated mouthfeel filled with sweet malty flavors, nuttiness, fruitiness, and a nice bitter hop counterbalance. Nice crisp finish. I like Great Lakes more with each of their beers that I try.

Pours a hazy glowing amber with a nice creamy off white head that leaves sheets of lace in my glass. Sweet fruity aromas, nutty, buttery, toasty and sweet fruity flavors. Medium bodied with a soft and creamy mouthfeel, finishes on the sweet side. Another good one from this brewery.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2005
Light aroma of toasted malt and ripe fruit. Clear copper color, thin off-white head. Richer-than-expected sweet malty flavor, moderate caramel, with light fruity notes and faint herbal hops. Medium body and smooth. One of the few examples of this style that I’ve actually enjoyed, much more flavorful than most Irish ales.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2005
This pours a thick deep amber color. The nose screams of sweet toasted malt and toffee. The flavor is very sweet which didn’t seem to go well with the toasted malt flavor. It’s almost like they were trying to hard to make something out of an Irish Ale. It didn’t work for me.

cazort (516) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2007 Reddish with little head. A rich grassy malt flavour, and complex earthy tones characterize this exceedingly pleasant beer. Very little bitterness, just a slight crispness. Smooth without being bland: absolutely my favorite Irish Ale without question.

Aside from the fact that I just spilled about half of this beer on my desk and won’t feel so bad about throwing out some of these old letters and paperwork... Ruby; small head. Nice aroma with malts, caramel, and dark fruit. Flavor is sharply sweet, pretty malty, with some light hops in the finish. Mouthfeel is very good: full and frothy; a bit sticky. A good beer that needs a lot of work to become outstanding.

I think i rated this beer as high as i could for a style of beer that really doesn’t knock me out....but these guys really consistently brew up excellent product. clean, tilted toward malty, but with a perfect amount of bitterness to balance it nicely. every flavor shines through. the best irish style ale i’ve ever had.

Pours ruby with no head. Malty aroma, more malty taste. Bland cardboard taste. Sweet. Odd aftertaste. I guess this is a good representation of the style. Not my style however.

Light malt and cane sugar aroma. Tan to red body with an off white head. Very slight lacing. Malt flavor with some florals mixed in. Clean finish.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2006 Very delicious beer. Malty,with toasted flavor, plus a hint of hops and a wee detection of fruit. This is the best Red Ale that I have ever tasted. I can’t find anything from this brewery herein Utah or just across the border in Nevada. I was fortunate enough to find this while visiting friends in Pittsburgh.Too bad. Damn fine beer nonetheless.
