A malty beer with a notable toasty flavor derived from lightly roasted malt. Slight fruit and hop accents add to the overall complexity. Available Mid-January to late March

a smooth malty irish red but I expected something with more flavour from great lakes

Golden color. Sweet malty, light hop nose. Fruity hop bite, quite sweet. Good alcohol content, nice long palate.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2003
UPDATED: APR 28, 2003 Typical auburn color, nose is very boring and tells little of the flavor. Palate feels a little nice at the beginning. After a few drinks, it is seemingly all carbonation and not from the hops. The falvor passes right away after a drinks, which might be what you want, but thats not for me. The malts do little for the beer and nor do the hops. The beer is drinkable (as is water) but not really enjoyable.

red in colour with nice creamy head, big hop flavour but lacks bitterness. I’d say it is more of a lager than an ale or was I expecting to much or comparing it to Mcafreys!!!

Pours ruby with no head. Malty aroma, more malty taste. Bland cardboard taste. Sweet. Odd aftertaste. I guess this is a good representation of the style. Not my style however.

Pours amber in color with a thin off-white head. Malty aroma with a hint of fruit. Medium bodied and finishes off with slight fruity finish. Good for an irish ale

Sammy (9815) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2006
Enormous initial head, looks roasty, light colour. Very fresh draft-lkike taste. A bit of roast and alcohol in aroma, fairly neutral. Mild, creamyish mouthfeel, light body close to watery. Easy drink, bitter with mild roastiness.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev & Dave B. -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a clear amber-orange with a spare diminishing off-white head. Aroma and flavour of caramel malt and not much else -- a hint of yeast, fruit and hops in there. It’s good but I like more hops and less caramel in my Ales.

pretty brown. darker than an ipa but translucent. good half-inch head. smells of octoberfest-type malts. pretty strong. unexceptional body/texture. kinda a less malty bock/octoberfest. yeah, surprisingly lagerish. apparently, this bottle is really old. i suppose i’ll rerate it some day.

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.
