Very good irish ale, much better to my taste than a Killians, or Legacy red. Look forward to this one coming around again.

Pours very nicely into a glass and is an off brown color in the glass, good head on it. Goes down very smooth with almost a coffee type flavor to it as well as a slight fruit quality. Overall quite a good beer to sit out and watch the sunset over Lake Superior with.

medium sweetness, lightly bitter, caramel, nuts, citrus, banana, amber-orange color, minimal head, medium body, average carbonation, long finish, overall worth trying, not a stand out beer but i would recommend if asked.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2012 Pale red pour and thin creamy head. Super smooth creamy caramel palate and refreshing taste. Well balanced beer.

Another solide creation from Great Lakes. I am not a fan of irish ales so this one caugt me off guard. Starts with a light citrusy aroma and has a light colour. Taste is hoppier than other Irish ales which is a plus. Finish is clean and crisp. Well done

Incredibly clear with an orange caramel coloring, off white foam head. Smells of malts - bready, caramel, and toffee. Surprisingly complex in taste - flavors of yeast apparent - earthy and bready, but sweet like strawberry. SLight hop bitterness to balance out. Light body with little carbonation. Very quick finish of sweet malts. Very much enjoyed this beer for its surprising complexity.

Beast: 12 oz. Bottle from GVL WEST- pours clear light amber in color with almost no head just a ring around the glass.. some malty sweetness.. medium carbonation ... very light roasty nut and caramel.. overall a little light for a red but not terrible Beauty: not available for this tasting

Bottle at George Street Pub in Chicago. What an underwhelming beer. Tasted like nothing to me. Couldn’t pick up any real flavor or smell. I will give it credit for being extremely easy to drink. Went down smooth but I need more than that. This might be a good beer to have with food like some corned beer and potatoes but on its own it was disappointing. Will not order again.
