On tap at Rowlands Calumet Brewery. Reddish amber with a thin off-white topper. Aroma of lightly roasted malt, caramel and yeast. Taste is pretty much malt and caramel and no detection of diacetyl. phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2008
This beer pours a dark clear copper colour with a medium sized tan head. Mouthfeel is creamy and delightful, rich taste, soft and nutty with lightly roasted malts. Semi sweet. Skyview (6115) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2008
On draught at the brewpub in downtown Chilton, Wisconsin. Pours a clear reddish amber brew with a creamy off-white head that has some nice retention and sticky lacing. Aroma of powdered amber malt, a touch of light yeast and flowery hops. Taste is light to medium bodied, some fruity character of apples, light caramel malt and citrus zest hops. Finish is slightly dry, a light metallic texture and thin caramel malt aftertaste is just barely noticeable. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

clear amber, wispy beige head, drippy lace,
sweet caramelized malt aroma,
rich malt flavor that lasts from beginning to end, nice sweetness from the richness but a light bitterness keeps it from being too sweet,
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 7/10; Flavor: 6/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2007 Paid my first visit to Rowlands on a beautiful winter Saturday. Started with the Irish Red. Poured darker than expected. Not a bitter beer by any means. Had a light-medium sweetness and medium body. Not overly sweet though. Picked up a growler and brought it to a buddies place. Everyone enjoyed it.

Sort of a generic amber - caramel malt with light hops. I hope this is long enough for the filter. 1FastSTi (3358) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2005
Deep red colored body. Tough to get an aroma on this one. Grains, toasted barley, lager profiles. Malty. Medium bodied. Bottom fermented. StewardofGondor (1933) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Transparent amber with a creamy off-white head. Nice sweet caramel aroma, reminding me of the dough from a honey bread. Flavor is nutty and highlights the toasted and caramel malts. There’s a pumpernickel dinner roll dimension to this. Amble bitterness. We’re not at a robust level here, but this is certainly complex for its genre. Dry, bitter finish with a walnut shell aftertaste. JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2005
Reddish/orange body, slightly dark. White creamy ring around glass. Odd sweet watermelon start, turns into general sweet malts and very slight hop taste. Okay.
