Bottle @ home via trade with barak316. Thanks Bill! Pours a clear, dark rust orange appearance with a cream colored head. Quite nutty, very toasty malty, big toffee, caramel, biscuity aroma. Cracker, toasty malty, light roast, a touch fruity, nutty flavor with a somewhat bitter, floral hoppy finish. Not bad.

Tap. Clear brownish amber pour with a small white pour. Malty nose with mild caramel. Full mouthfeel. Taste is an odd malt and almost buttery. Caramel as well. Not crazy about this one.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a light amber color with a medium rocky off white head. The aroma is lightly roasted malt, some caramel, and mildly earthy. The flavor is moderately sweet malt, light roast, light caramel, bready, with some earthy hops. Medium bodied. A decent, but middle of the road kind of beer.

phaleslu (10104) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2010
12 oz. bottle from Keller’s IGA. Pours a clear copper with an inch-thick beige head. Aroma of sweet and roasted malts, toast, caramel, cherry, apple, spice, and hops. Flavor is sweet caramel malts, cherry, apple, light hops, spice, and brown sugar. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, and crisp. Sweet, smooth, and simple. Nice beer.

GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 9, 2011
355mL stolen from tastybeer. Pours a clear fire orange with a medium, dense, rocky, sheen, yellow head with pretty good retention and spotty lace. Aroma is corn heavy, reminds me of a grainy well-made lager, lots of sweet cherry, and that characteristic Great Lakes rustic/raw maltiness. Taste is suddy at first, moving to sweet cherries, moving to almost metallic, and finishing oatmeal grainy and crackery malt heavy. Really has an insane amount of malt husk and raw malt character that Great Lakes has in all of their beers. Just too suddy on the palate.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 30, 2012
12oz bottle. Clear light red color, minimal white head, big bubbles. Crisp but a bit heavy carbonation. Very good with a toasted jimmy john’s sandwich, becomes much more enjoyable with a meal. Nice light spice, caramel, fruity taste. Light bitter. A decent Irish.

2.9
3fourths (9332) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2006
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.

blipp (9172) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 26, 2009
Bottle. Pours orange amber with a beige head. Sweet aroma, toasty as well, with a light hop presence. The flavor is well balanced with toasty caramel malt and some nice earthy hop notes. Pretty good.

On tap at some crappy fake sports bar in WashPA. God, how many of these places do we have to endure? Soulless. Full of fake masculinity and cheap fast food. Now, we add to that mix a fake commitment to craft beer. Dozens of TVs blaring the Penguins game, feels like loneliness. Anyway, to the beer: pours a deep copper color with a medium white head. A sweet clean caramel flavor, toast, some light fruit. Pretty good. Thankfully, because apparently the normal glass size is 32 ounces!

czar (9009) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2015
bottle shared by tom10101, thanks bro. pours unclear bright golden orange with a small off-white cap, little retention and lacing. toasted melanoidin, fruitiness - red peppery fruits - hint of tartness; sulfuric grassiness, pepper, clean yeast. light carbonation, light body - watery; almost balanced herbal-grassy-spicy finish. nice irish ale.
