Had this on tap at a wedding reception. Nice amber pour with an off-white head that lingered nicely and okay lacing. Aroma was slightly malty caramel with a hint of fruit. Mouthfeel was bittersweet, and the taste, again was a malty fruit, though mnot real dominant.
All rounded out to a smooth, pleasant finish. Not a great beer, but it turned out to be a pretty good session beer, as I had several.

Not a big fan of my first Irish ale. Something just seemed off about this... kinda all over the place. Aromas of sweet cherries and toast? Flavor has little hop character at all... mostly just some toasted malt.

Well, this is malty and has a degree of graininess that is prevalent but without hop accents really. An okay beer with some alcohol in the finish.

Poured from bottle a very pretty orange/red color. Big, beautiful cream colored head. Smelled like sweet cherries. Taste was remarkably light. Very malty...Fruits, cherry and caramel...Very drinkable beer!

Nice red ale with sizable head. Burnt carmel and slight bitter with dry taste and abrupt ending. Good drinking beer. Taste grew on me more and more as I made my way through.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Light red/orange color with thin pinkish head. Aroma features chocolate, peach-like sweetness and cherry like tartness, all while still reminding me of a toasted English muffin with a heavy dose of butter. Very sweet in the mouth. Starts with doughnut flavors and some building cherry tartness. Very little toastyness, but the spicy hops do dry this beer out quite nicely towards the end. Lingering peach-like fruitiness after the swallow. Not bad, but I feel like it was to fruity for its style/intention...

Oh my god, super super drinkable. I REALLY liked this one. Great lakes rules.
It is a little bit like nosferatu light. But its great stuff.

Bottle from Premier Gourmet. This was a surprisingly light Irish ale. The beer poured a light ruby red with a thick white head. The smell and the taste had a good deal of citrus present as well as some caramel and roasted notes. A very fresh feel. Very drinkable and satisfying.
