UPDATED: SEP 24, 2006 Very delicious beer. Malty,with toasted flavor, plus a hint of hops and a wee detection of fruit. This is the best Red Ale that I have ever tasted. I can’t find anything from this brewery herein Utah or just across the border in Nevada. I was fortunate enough to find this while visiting friends in Pittsburgh.Too bad. Damn fine beer nonetheless.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2005 Amber glow, light beige head. Taste is pleasant, mild toasted malty flavor with a tasteful sweetness, with a hint of fruit. Medium body, has a nice bitter not overpowering hop finish, smooth and creamy. Another fine brew from Great Lakes.

mbpufall (83) - Andover, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2011
UPDATED: APR 15, 2011 Pours lighter amber with orange hues. Thin cream head that dissipates quickly. Toasty, bready malt aroma. Similar toasted, roasted malt flavor with just a touch of hoppiness balanced pretty decently. Drinkable - no real complaints, but nothing amazing about it either. Decent

Bottled pours red very clear with moderate off white head. Taste is clean malt with just a hint of spice, smooth throughout. Nice refreshing beer perfect when you want two or three.

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.

Bottle thanks to Mike B., thanks man! Beer pours a reddish/brown hue with a short lasting head. I picked up lots of malts and toffee/carmel in the aroma. The finish improves as the beer warms as the carbonation is a little to prickly at first. Not a bad beer but nothing extraordinary.

Tap @ many places. Amber color, off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel and some hops. Flavor is sweet caramel and mild hops. Very drinkable.

Dark amber pour with off white head, great malty flavor and nice arrangement of hops. Very easy to drink. Tasted great with pizza.

Another good selection from GLBC, this is about as textbook irish ale as you can find. Pours a clean copper with a moderate not-quite-white head. The aroma is immediately malt with hints of roasted nuts, toast, and just a bit of dark fruit. The taste is much the same, very noticeable again are the roasty toasty malt notes with the faint fruity hops becoming more apparent as the beer warms. It finished relatively dry and clean with almost no lingering to speak of. Very ’textbook’....but in a good way.

Appearance: fairly textbook; reddish amber; low off-white head Aroma: lacks intensity but the expected aromas are present: moderate malt, slightly toasty caramel, possibly with a touch of butter Flavor: has a toastiness, also caramel malt and a bread or popcorn note; pretty appetizing Mouthfeel: medium-light body; mild carbonation; quite smooth texture; enjoyable
