poured a lighter orange color with no head or lacing to speak of. Aroma was weak as well, some caramel. Flavor was a sweet malts needed a little something so it didn’t run away

Poured a clear orange to copper color with a very thin head, not much lacing. The aroma was hard to pick up, some toffee and caramel notes, toasty too. The flavor was a little imbalanced toward sweet, yet no where near cloying and certainly balanced by the toasted earthy notes (somewhat like Blue Point’s Toasted Lager). With temperature, a touch of fruity esters appeared. Mouthfeel was moderate and with a little stickiness.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JAN 28, 2007
12 oz. bottle, drink by date 3/27/07. rystal clear coppery amber under an off white head of medium size, settling to a fine layer in a few minutes. Light malty nose of caramel and a hint of light stone fruit. No hop aroma to speak of, but that is not unexpected with this style. Smooth mouthfeel with medium carbonation and body. This doesn’t have any big in your face flavors, but rather a gentle malty sweetness, and just enough bitterness to bring things into balance. Drinkable, subtle, a good session beer.

Bottle. A bit of a rare variety for me as this may be the first beer I’ve rated that falls specifically into the Irish Ale category, though I have had similar beers. Not overwhelming or complex in any department. A bright, deep copper color with minimal head. Slight bananna aroma. A rather bitter beer when compared to the bottle description - expecting more hoppy characteristics. A nice, drinkable brew - but not one of my favorites from Great Lakes.

Draught at 69 Taps in Akron, OH. Deep amber color with good head. Nice flavor with clean malty flavor and a little fruit.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2007
Draft. Aroma: Lightly toasted malt, brown sugar, light fruitiness(grapes and apples). Appearance: Orange amber in color and clear. Light khaki head was full and foamy with decent retention. Some lacing. Flavor: Toasted malt, caramel, light fruitiness(grapes), some light hoppiness with some floral notes. Bitterness is high for the style, but not unpleasant. Fairly dry finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: A nice Irish Red. Easy to drink.

Nephilium (1790) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2007
This seems to me to be a great session ale. Pours a clear amber-red, with a thin head, leaving some faint lacing behind. The aroma is very sweet, but that is not reflected in the beer itself. Nothing in the taste really stands out to me, but overall it is a good solid beer.

12 oz bottle best by 03/20/07 from Trooper11. Amber orange with a beige head. Lightly toasted rye nose. Rye bread flavors, very light nut notes, followed by a mild, bready, herbal bitter finish. Nice!

Beautiful shining clear and bold copper colored body. Nose is peat and overipe bananas. Taste is straight caramel malts with a light banana yogurt flavor. Body is moderately fizzy.
