A malty beer with a notable toasty flavor derived from lightly roasted malt. Slight fruit and hop accents add to the overall complexity. Available Mid-January to late March

tiger orange with some haze. after a minute the head is down to just a skin of die hard little bubbles. the nose is balanced caramel malt and cedary hop, and quite engaging. whiskey and apple flavor, medium bodied, good bitterness. i put mine away without any grief at all. you’d think it was castor oil and battery acid by some of the ratings on this page, but i think it’s complex, medium bodied and pretty good. references to killians, which really IS swill, seem the product of overblown expectations rather than conway’s being a poor offering. so there.

This brew pours a medium clear reddish amber. The mostly diminishing off-white head starts out full and creamy, and has good lacing. The complex malty nose is bold and spicy with a caramel toastiness balanced by resinous herbs and soapy dough. The bittersweet flavor is balanced yet moderate with an acidic toasty quality. The body is outstanding, and if I would have been blindfolded, I would have had no idea of the brew’s color. This brew tastes ALOT darker than it looks. The body is medium to full with lively carbonation a creamy texture that finishes very dry. Great Lakes brewing continues to impress me.

Clear copper/red. Decent creamy head. Nose of malt,peat, and something that reminded me of rotted vegetables?? Very smoooth body,palate is very ’clean’ with a trace of peaty smokiness and subtle malt, light hops at the end that actually work pretty well. Very drinkable but flexes no muscle, even at 6.5%

Great Looking, but not great tasting Ale.... Great Lakes runs the gamut of quality in it’s brews, and this one is right in the middle of them. They have many better products to offer.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2004 Amber red body with sweet malt aroma - fresh. Body is mildy carbonated, smoothing out as it warms. Thick caramel paints the center of the tongue and roof of my mouth. Finish is hoppier than some of the style - I liked that, it helped balance out the sweetness.

Hints of chocolate and peat, butter and alcohols. Some mineral component not altogether pleasant -- tastes like calcium carbonate.

Just not much there at all, low body, no flavor, it’s just overhyped Killian’s.

Verly lacking in flavor, malty, extremely subtle on the hops, the worst Great Lakes Product i’ve had to date
