blankboy (7472) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev & Dave B. -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a clear amber-orange with a spare diminishing off-white head. Aroma and flavour of caramel malt and not much else -- a hint of yeast, fruit and hops in there. It’s good but I like more hops and less caramel in my Ales.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2006
A ho-hum beer from a good brewery. Clear pale amber with a big off-white head. Seeded rye, toffee, malt, candy apple aromas. A creamy feel in the mouth. Flavor was moderately sweet, caraway, bready.

HogTownHarry (6381) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy, tupalev and Dave B - my bottle via trade with Sammy. Amber-orange with a decent off-white diminishing head. Aroma of orange pekoe tea, light roast malt, dry floral hops, lightly sweet. Taste of wheat, sweet light roast malt, dry floral hops and tea again - pleasant. Soft average body, dry, lightly astringent mouthfeel, quick finish, very nice.

zsb19 (168) - Cincinnati, Kentucky, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Bottle - Pours a deep amber with a thin white head. Aroma is malty caramel. Mediuim oily palate with a nice touch of carbonation. Taste is sweet caramel malt with a touch of bread and dried fruit on the follow through. Aftertaste has a slight metallic taste. Overall, not a bad Irish Ale.

heemer77 (5325) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 17, 2006
Dark copper colored body with a slightly off white head. The aroma is apple cider with some toasted bread and a hint of peanuts. There is a note of Cheerios cereal. The taste is like fall leaves with some old apples. There is some corn cob and a little bit of metal in the aftertaste. A decent Irish Ale.

ElGaucho (2395) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2006
Draught at Fitz’s Pub, Elmhurst, IL. Strong alcohol nose. Smells like an amber. Nothing out of the ordinary. Slightly hazy amber color with a small off-white head and some lace. Initial mouthfeel is a little off. Tastes like Winters Bourbon Cask Ale (AB), but not as sweet. I expected more from Great Lakes, although I submit the possibility that draught craft brews don’t always move that well, and the beer I had may have been sitting in the lines.

jonwayne4883 (401) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 6, 2006
a decent irish ale, not quite as good as we had hoped, but it gets the job done. fails to leave a lasting impression or ask for a repeat buy

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 1, 2006
Bottle. Pours light orange with a diminishing head. Nutty and malty aroma. Caramel, citrusy, and even some cookie like flavor. Clean and very mild bitter finish. A very solid example of the style

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2006
Bottled. Poured a clear, lighter shade of orange with a semi-well-retained cap of creamy off-white head. Nose was quite pleasant, with toasty caramel, leafy/floral hoppage, nuttiness, and light fruits (maybe some pear). Sticky caramel, apples, pears, and a woodsy feel to the flavor... just a hint of citrus sourness... caramel and alcohol became a tad biting on the back of the palate as this warmed. Overall very drinkable and solid brew.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7288) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2010 Until now I have never been impressed by an Irish Red. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright reddish caramel color with a small yellow-white head that fades quickly. The aroma is sour tangy malts. The flavor is sour tangy malts with a light apple and pear element and a light zesty malt undertone. The beer is smooth and eminently drinkable. Definitely a better beer than the sum of it’s parts.
