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

I want to rave about this beer, I really do. I love the brewery and I love my heritage and I’m sick of cloying cheap red Irish ale knockoffs. But this beer can’t quite climb past the promise of its substantial, pleasantly malty body - once you’ve had half a bottle you realize that there’s really nothing else there.

Run of the mill ale. Nice red color and pleasant aroma. Medium hops presence and the same sweet caramel malts as most of the other GL brews.

Yellow/amber color with a huge, fluffy white head. Aroma is faintly like a belgian blond, slightly sweet and malty. Flavor has caramel notes, smooth overall. It's an alright brew, seems kind of like it can't make up its mind what type of beer it wants to be.

Well, this is malty and has a degree of graininess that is prevalent but without hop accents really. An okay beer with some alcohol in the finish.

Very faint aroma. Light malty flavor, a little nutty. Drinkable, not terrible but far from interesting, and a little too strong to session. Seems like it’s in a no man’s land, in terms of what it’s doing.

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.

12oz bottle. Rating skewed, as the beer is being consumed a week after it’s est by date. Filtered tan-orange color. Fluffy soapy head. The aroma is all malt, some amber in there I’d assume. Sweet and pretty one-dimensional, I’m not very impressed. Good session beer for the malt maniac, but lacks any praise-worthy complexities.

Had at the Grafton. A decent Irish ale but not as roasted a flavor as I would have expected. A slight tang that didn’t agree with me. However overall not bad. Serving: Tap

Bottle. Toasty caramel nose with not-so-vague highlights of strawberry ice cream! Cloudy amber pour with a dense, rocky tan head. Taste is mildly sweet with low bitterness and roast, thin toffee and lager-like character in the crisp light body. Has a touch of flimsy citrus from the hops, but the overall flavor is backed way off from what I was anticipating.
