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.

Pours a dark reddish brown. Caramel and malty. Overall an average Irish ale. Not my favorite from GLBC bet certainly drinkable.

Decent but forgettable. Nose was fresh and nutty. Dull taste that was brought on by the malts that never hit in the right spot.

[Tap] Reddish amber in color. Light carbonation and little head. Sweet and sticky caramel and brown sugar nose. Toasted breads, sweet fruits and floral flavors. Sweet and one-dimensional, but a nice palate at least.

sawbuck (625) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2014
Mild aroma of malt..hints of bread and hay. Crystal clear orange red in color...white head leaves quickly. Rich malty sweetness is in the beginning. Stalls there, then a mild bitterness moves in. Pretty uneventfull. Not a bad session beer.

fakebeersnob (320) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - FEB 14, 2015
I like a decent amount of Great Lake’s beer (need to get around to rating more). This one has me a bit disappointed. Pours a very light copper with no real head. It has a creamy mouthfeel up front, but ends a bit watery. Smells like a beer (no real distinct smell, so just normal malt. Light toasted malt, maybe slight floral and fruit. Nothing that is the main focus. Very light tasting beer. I seem to prefer more stronger flavored beers (regardless of the type) so this one just not stack up for me due to the very light flavor. Rerated only due to a mistake on initial rating.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is bready malt and caramel, similar flavor with a light fruit flavor. Decent.

Reddish colored pour from the bottle. Taste is caramel, malt, wood, grain and light hops.
