4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Crisp dark orange color with a tight white head. There’s nothing overpowering in this, and that’s why I like it. It just tastes good! If you really want to search for flavors, you’ll get some bread, a little bit of roast, maybe a hint of apple (but not sour) at the end.
Simple, but very good.

Excellent. Had this from tap. Good roasted malt flavors wit ha complex hop profile. Both highly malted and hopped There are slight hints of rasins. Wonderful dark red color. The beer is very clear. Probably the best Red Irish Ale I’ve had. Very drinkable. My Great Lakes Favorite to date.

12 oz. pours clear light amber in color with almost no head just a ring around the glass. A small amount of caramel and some spice but there is a funkiness there as well. I taste some malty sweetness and biscuit it almost tastes like a lighter version of their christmas ale. Mouthfeel is light with medium carbination and the finish is a little short.

Bottle. Pours a deep amber, almost brown golden color and a medium white head. Aroma is heavy in malts and a slight, slight hop smell. Taste is medium bodied malty character, and a somewhat sour or hoppy flavor towards the end. Overall it is a smooth taste and finish.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a completely translucent amber with a decent-sized but quickly receding white head. Nose is cheap american beer (ie, not inviting). Flavor is much better than the nose. Creamy, nutty, malty, and a bit sweet. I recall really loving this when I was younger, but my tastes have clearly changed quite a bit. Still, this is a decent beer for a change of pace. I’ll continue to pick up a sixer or two when its released each year.
