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.

Tasted 4/27/08. 6oz sample from the brewpub. Big bubbled. Filtered with an amber ruby hue. Slight nose. So crisp. So smooth. Touch soggy hops. Medium bodied. Good hop profile and very well melded. Mild effervescence. Mild toast. Spicy with a slight smokey character. Totally solid! My second favorite from this brewery.

Doughy nose with bread and herbs with just a touch of berries and dark fruits. The flavor is lightly sweet, light/moderately bitter with a touch of caramel, doughy malts, dusty yeast and light dark fruit. Medium body is soft with moderate carbonation. Nice beer.

Silphium (3192) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2010
On tap at Dusty’s Tap Room, Okemos. Hazy red body, thick, creamy head that leaves nice lacing. Soapy, piny hops assert slight dominance over Munichy caramels and berries. Nice, herbal, bitter finish. Well-balanced and tasty.

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.

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.
