On tap at The Knick. Mild sweet nutty nose with very little hop aroma. Medium golden amber clear with light haze, topped with thin off-white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts and stays sweet with caramel and brown sugar. Light nutty finish with some sugary tang. A little too sweet for my tastes.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of caramel malt, citrus hops and some fruit. Body is full and crisp. Earthy hops, caramel malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth.. Finish is long and semi-dry. Well made brew.

Tasted from draft. Pours a ruby amber with white head. Aroma of caramel and bread. Taste is sweet malt with minimal bitterness on the finish but very well balanced. Flavors of caramel, toffee, nuts, dark fruits, molasses. Very good for its style as usual for a Great Lakes beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, best before 4/7/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear orange copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cal that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, biscuit, toast, toffee, pear, apple, raisin, floral, herbal, pepper, light nuttiness, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, biscuit, toast, toffee, raisin, pear, floral, herbal, light pepper, light nuttiness, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Slight earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, biscuit, toast, toffee, raisin, pear, floral, herbal, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of bready malt, yeast ester, and light-moderate hop flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Irish red ale. All around good balance and robustness of bready malt, yeast ester, and light-moderate hop flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
