Deep bronze/brown with slow but excessive carbonation and a thin head. Highly aromatic with a bouquet of sweet flowers and juicy lemons. Creamy and smooth with initial sweetness moving to lemon tea. Highly enjoyable. Maybe I was in a good mood because of my birthday, but these numbers seem appropriate.

Terminus (3312) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - FEB 1, 2006
bottle-a bright clear oragne appearance topped with a sudsy, swirly small bubble soapy head. aroma has notes of earthy hops, toasted amber grains, cherries, strawberries, light citrus and a hint of diacytl. flavors are very sweet, almost over the top, but the earthy hops add a needed balance here. lots of leafy hops with a nice dose of fruity malts. palate is full, rich and creamy. Quite nice for the style and under-rated slightly. Nice beer!

Courtesy of OhioDad. <P> Aroma is very strong and features a lot of caramel malt, fruit, toast and light hops. Color is a remarkably transparent amber/red color with a firm thumb thick white head. Fore is quite toasty with less fruitiness than expected. Sweet malts are there though, but well balanced by the hops. The palate is light and refreshing. Some caramel malt and hop bitterness linger in the after tase. I think this is a well done ale.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 26, 2006
12oz bottle from OhioDad. Pours a redish amber color with a small white fizzy head. Nose is sweet caramel, light brown sugar. Taste is quite fizzy on the tongue. Some flavors of caramel and roasty malt, light cherry essence, and a sweet and light bitter finish.

Sweet malt and fruit taste to this beer. Interesting Irish, but I wish it had a little more substance to it.

lethe (177) - New York, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Bright ruby pour that is transparent thin. Nose is stronger than anticipated with a light roast template holding tones of almond, dark fruit, and bready malt. Palate is thin as well and the body is definitely on the light end of the scale. Flavor is more malt character with a nice roast accent throughout. Medium hop presence in finish. Fairly enjoyable and easily quaffed; leaves a bolder body or stronger profile desired however.

Lowe1983 (1367) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2006
Pours amber in color with a thin off-white head. Malty aroma with a hint of fruit. Medium bodied and finishes off with slight fruity finish. Good for an irish ale

A light malty aroma with some fruit is evident. The color is a dark golden with a shortlasting white head. There is a light malt and hop balance on the palate.

My favorite Great Lakes brew. A bit malty and some good nutty flavors. Nice beer.

12oz bottle pours copper with a fair white head that laces and stays prettle well. Aroma of caramel, a bit of honey, and much roasted malt. Sweet and quite malty for flavor. Notes of caramel, honey, and a bit of hops finish this off. Some light fruity notes on the finish too. Palate is medium bodied and very smooth. A nice drinkable session for sure..
