Growler sample shared by Dr Silverworm. Poureed hazy light ruby color with an average fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate roasted malt and earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Flavor was moderate bittersweet flavor with an average bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sample at Gallo’s Tap Room. The beer is a dark copper-red color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Short stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt and butterscotch. Light body with a sweet malt character and notes of vinegar and fruit. The finish is lightly hopped with a buttery aftertaste. Think there was something wrong with this but being a brand new tapping not a good sign.

Great Lake’s "red ale" offering. Man these things are a dime a dozen. This beer is bereft of character.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint at Gallo’s on 4/25/12. Clear reddish copper pour with a medium beige head. Malty nose with caramel and grassy hop notes. Malty flavor with a big buttery character with some caramel and a very bitter grassy and earthy hop finish. Lots of diacetyl in the flavor. Bums me out because I’m a big fan of GLBC, but a lot of their draft offerings lately (even regulars like Burning River and Eliot Ness) have the big D going on.
