On tap at the Bocktown bar in the Robinson Twp shopping complex. They were having a Great Lakes tasting night. Pours light orange brown with a froth on top for a head. Not much aroma but what I do sense is sorta fruit hoppy and sweet. The initial taste does reveal some hops but it is not overpowering like most IPAs. Much milder than an IPA but has the personality of an IPA without the offensive bitterness. Very nice creamy carbonation that is enjoyable but it does not attack your tongue. The smooth bubbliness is sorta creamy champagne in nature. Finish is quite hoppy but again it is not strong medicine bitterness like an IPA. It is trying to build to that level but it ends up with a short medium bitter linger. Way better than that flat Wexford irish cream ale but not as good as Smithwicks.

Irish ale on tap at Maple Tree in Blue Island. Maybe mine was bad...soapy, no head, no carbonation, funky aftertaste, very disappointing especially because it was so highly recommended by someone who’s beer knowledge I respect so highly.

Bottle. Maybe this bottle was off...Looked fine with a nice head, but taste is reallyoff like something has gone bad. Reliable brewer so wil try again.

Old rate. Really a style that doesn’t fit anywhere. This one is maltier but still confusing.

As soon as I sniffed this one I knew there'd be trouble. It had a really bad bite to it that ruined my meal.
