Rating #333, that’s halfway to the sign of the antichrist. Scary. I’ve also had a lot to drink. Clear amber color, solid white head. Aroma of bread dough and wet socks, but in a good way. Taste is like Ovaltine on rye bread. Tasty. cgarvieuk (26422) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 30, 2008

Golden amber; richly malty - rye bread, toffee; complex malt palate - chocolate chip cookies, slight tropical fruit esters, depth of toast notes & bread crust. jtclockwork (17654) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle thanks to BlackIPA. Pours reddish amber with off white head. Nose/taste of nutty toffee, malt, caramel and bready malt. Medium body. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 17, 2011
A: The pour is amber in color with a finger of khaki colored head.
S: A very toasty aroma. Lots of sweet, toffee and caramel malts with plenty of toasted malts. There is a touch of fruit to the nose and a bit of hops in there, but they’re pretty faint.
T: Quite a pleasant flavor which consists mostly of sweet and creamy caramel. Plenty of toffee and toasted bread are there as well. Malt driven, certainly, but there is just a very light hop flavor and bitterness.
M: Light to medium in body with a medium level of carbonation.
O: A pretty decent Irish Red. The malt character really stands out and gives a good flavor to the beer.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is bready malt and caramel, similar flavor with a light fruit flavor. Decent. bhensonb (15993) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Bottle from Half Time. LPours copper amber with a slight near-white head. Aromas of lightly roasted malt and floral/fruit. Near med body. It’s floral/fruit, followed by roasted malt. There’s a lot of that roast malt flavor. Even goes a bit nutty. But it finishes fairly dry. Tmoney99 (15138) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2005
Bottle. Medium red amber with average rocky off-white head. Aroma was moderate toasted malt. Flavor and body was a medium with average bitter finish. Dogbrick (14344) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Great Lakes usually provides exemplary models for the beers they create, and the fact that this brew is merely above average is kind of a letdown. Still, it’s pretty good. Deep ruby amber color with a medium beige head and thin lacing. The aroma is roasted malt and caramel. Medium-bodied and on the carbonated side, with flavors of sweet malt, light hops and a bit of fruit. The finish is clean and somewhat sweet. Overall pretty good, but I just know GLBC could knock this one out of the park if they really wanted to. Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2009
12 ounce bottle shared by cdumler. Thanks! Pours a clear reddish orange color with a medium head. head retention and lacing. Fine carbonation is visible. Aroma is fruity with notes of apricot, caramel and nuts. Taste is elementary school fruit cocktail... peach, pineapple, syrup and whatnot. Also caramel and some faint earthy notes. Full bodied,
