Bottle, best by May 1, 2006. Sounds pretty fresh to me! Looks like a really clear amber ale to me. Not much aroma. Nice lacing, but not much head even when I pour the beer down the middle (like the Bud Light commercial tells me to!). Surprisingly medium- to full body. I tend to go for beers on the malty side, so this is very appealing to me. I can hardly taste/smell any hops! This is just the kind of beer I would reach for a second time!

Precept53 (147) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2011
Aroma of caramel, nuts, and hops. Very nice copper coloring with modertae copper head that slowly disipates. Taste of strong hops and alcohol. Moderate mouth feel with livlely carbonation. Overall well made beer but not as good as many of Great Lakes fine offerings.

Pours a dark, clear, reddish-orange. Minimal head, but lots of carbonation. Roast, nuts, hops aromas. Crisp & clean at the front. Caramel flavor, with mild bitter aftertaste & linger.

Paid $1.50 for a single 12floz bottle with a BBD 04.14.2017. Consumed from a mug glass 03.16.2017. What we have here is an amber ale in the Irish tradition, and it does a fine job of being true to style. Albeit a tad high ABV wise. Anyway, it has a copper body with a soft off-white head. A malty beer, where the cereal grains call to order a sweet doughy aroma and flavor. A hearty medium-bodied ale good for late winter/early spring swilling.

This is an AWESOME beer, from the best brewery on Earth. Excellent smooth full flavor, rich on the palate, witha great aroma. A hint of sweetness, alot of malt. A gorgeous red color, It’s one fault is a fast fading head.

pjweaver (136) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Pint Glass Pours a red amber, with a small white head. Aroma of nutty dark chocolate, toasty hazelnut. Light palate, with dull flavors matching the nose. Oily in the mouth and on the finish. Meh.

kjohns (131) - North Dakota, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Clear medium red-amber pour with moderate bubbly off-white head. Aroma is predominantly malty, mostly caramel and biscuit with a bit of nuttiness. Taste is caramel and toffee with just a touch of floral hops. Nothing fancy or complex here, just a very easy-drinking Irish ale.

Pours a reddish amber. Moderate to low carbonation. Much sweeter that. I expected with minimal bitterness. Nice beer.

Color is a gorgeous ruby hues beer with a thin white head. Aroma of malts, toast, and caramel. Taste is malt forward with a sweet well balanced finish. Good brew from a great brewery.
