Irish Red Lager
Named for Steves' friend Ed Lewis, who has been building canoes and paddles in this area for many years and who built Steve his custom mash paddle for the brewery. Deep red in color, this beer has a nice maltiness balanced with an English hop bitterness in the finish.

Draft sample at MBG Winterfest 2009. Pours reddish/brown color with a moderate frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Medium roasted sweet malty aroma. Medium bodywith a smooth deep texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

b3shine (8109) - Indiana, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Draft to pint at The Livery. Looks good for the style; a transparent copper with foamy eggshell head. Smells malty with notes of caramel, toast, and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with less toastiness and a medium-bodied mouthfeel. A touch of hops too. A decent example of the style.

TheAlum (6943) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Pours a dark dark amber, well hazed, with small white head that dissipates to a film. Aromas are faint, lightly malty but not much going there. Initial is lightly sweet, throwing some fruity notes, light hoppy bitterness. Apple fruit, light spice make this beer very quaffable overall. Finishes mellow sweetness, near non existant bitterness. Very nice overall.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 29, 2007
Tap: Deep amber with reddish highlights topped by a nice creamy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and aromatic hops, slight caramel and biscuity malt, walnut and a hint of seasalt. The taste has a crisp bitterness with an herbal background supported by a layer of sweet grainy malts. Slight medical finish however. The mouth feel is thin, refreshing, dry and short. A simple drinkable brew.

heemer77 (5294) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 6, 2008
From a growler a day after getting one. The body was dark amber and copper . The aroma was earthy with some floral hops. There was also toffee and iced tea. The taste was black tea with some oranges and light potatoes. A pretty good version of a style I don’t usually like.

queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Tap at brewery. Sweet butterscotch, banana aroma. Copper with a small off white head. Funky malt, grassy hops flavor. This one was kind of weird for me.

On tap at The Livery. Amber/reddish color with medium white head. Aroma of malt and grass/earth hops. Biscuit in the flavor. Palate was both a bit watery and dry. Overall it was ok.
