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

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.

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..

Poured a hazy, light amber. Nice white head with good lacing around the glass. Aroma of toasted malts and sweet fruity notes. Flavor however was sweet and hoppy. I didn’t really care for it. Light bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Not bad, but not my type.

Poured hazy amber orange with a thin dense off white head...smell is fruity and sweet roasty nuts...taste is disappointing...sour grain and cloying sweetness...

Another good beer from Great Lakes. This was a pretty good irish ale that had a nice hint of fruit to the aroma and taste.
