Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #37 (Feb 2010):
Brassy orange color, clarity is there, and a healthy head, too. Apple and plum fruitiness with caramel malt fill the nose. Inviting smoothness makes you want to take sip after sip; lush medium body. Caramel runs into a veggie herbal hoppiness. Ripe fruit runs hard with apples, plum and pear. Hop bitterness is subtle but seems to have an unmovable layer in the middle. Lemon candy? The alcohol does show its strength with some warmth. Bittersweet finish.
While not sessionable compared to the more mainstream "Irish" beers, it's good to know that if you are looking for that craft beer around March 17th that has a bit more depth, this one will fill that void.

Smooth easy drinker from Great Lakes. Pours a brilliant copper color with a very thin white head and light lacing. Nose of caramel malts. Taste is up front light brown sugar and caramel with a crisp clean aftertaste that satisfies. Light carbonated mouthfeel makes it an excellent session beer and a good beginner brew for the new beer nut palate. It is worth noting that this beer varies a bit year to year, just like many Great Lakes brews. Some times more malty, sometimes thinner, but all in all highly quaffable.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours orange red with a small white head that dissipates but leaves a tad of lacing. Smells of lightly roasted barley with a little but ad fruit, grape jumping out the most. Tastes of medium roasted malt with a bit of creaminess. Beer is light-medium bodied with good carbonation and nice finish. Overall a pretty good beer.
