The body has light amber honey color with very good clarity. On top it forms a big creamy off white colored head. The head slowly fades but hangs on well and make cool rings of lace on the glass. The aroma is mostly sweet with hints of lightly roasted grains, bready yeast, light hops and some mild fruit notes. Its flavor has a good solid medium body with a sweet malty character that is tempered with just enough leafy hops for some balance. There are notes of bread, light caramel malt, orange marmalade and mild hops. The palate is smooth, slightly slick and easy drinking with mellow carbonation.

Solid red. Amber pour. Toasted malts, caramel, medium carbonation with pretty decent balance. Tad sweet, but drinkable.

Bottle bought on a recent trip to PA. Pours a copper amber colour with small white head. Aroma is roasted malt, floral. Taste is pretty much the same. Very decent Irish Ale.

Bottle. Pours red in color with thin white head that lingers. Caramel malt aroma with mild carbonation. Balanced hop flavor with a bit of sweetness. Nice caramel flavor with some complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is buttered bread and toast with no hop aroma. Appearance is reddish amber color with thin off-white head. Flavorist light caramel upfront followed by a stronger buttered toast flavor. Finish is grain malt toast. Mouth feel is medium to light body as style. Moderate to heavy carbonation. Overall impression is malt forward with an overall buttered toast aroma and flavor. My feel is accurate to style.

Pours a copper brown with a foamy white head. Aroma is sweet fruit, almost yeasty, and caramel. Flavor is less impressive. Sweet fruits stand out the most, along with some wheat and malts. Body feel is light. This is an okay beer. Not the most flavorful, but still hits the spot.

Mild aroma of malt..hints of bread and hay. Crystal clear orange red in color...white head leaves quickly. Rich malty sweetness is in the beginning. Stalls there, then a mild bitterness moves in. Pretty uneventfull. Not a bad session beer.

From my girlfriend’s parents’ basement. Fortunately, this beer is best before 4-22-2014, so I am still getting in the Goldilocks zone. Anyway, it pours an amber color with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, vegetal, caramel malts, and some little hops. Taste is sweet and fruity at the front. Small underlying hoppiness. Mild bitter aftertaste. This is a kind of different Irish Ale.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2014
Best by 3/21/14. Poured 2/16/14. Appearance: Poured aggressively, but no head really to speak of. Perfectly clear copper color. No lacing to be seen. Looks decent. (3.5/5) Smell: One of those brews I don’t have a chance of accurately describing. It just smells like beer. No specific fruit, no significant, out-of-place hoppiness, not a massively overpowering malt aroma... just smells like a balanced mix of hops, barley, yeast. All I can really add is that it offers a "red" aroma. The smell indicates that the flavor will be more maltier than hoppier. (3.5/5) Taste/feel: Strange. I swear, I’m tasting a combination of vegetables. Potato skin, celery seed, tomato juice... the beer description mentions Conway as a "meat and potatoes" kind of guy, and this beer does truthfully have a cabbage soup sort of flavor (I can assure you this is not from the glass, by the way.) Entirely unexpected, considering the aroma gives no suggestions of that. Malt, a barrage of vegetative flavors, and then the aftertaste is a super subtle roasted "red" flavor. Thin initial mouthfeel that gets a bit thicker in the mouth (that’s what she said). Medium carbonation at best. A truthfully strange beer in that it has some, again, very unexpected flavors. (3.5/5, 3.5/5) Far from GLBC’s best. It’s an alright beer, but likely not one I’d pick up again. I don’t hate it though, not at all. I’d definitely enjoy this with nothing else available. 3.5/5
