Great Lakes Conway's Irish Ale brewed by Great Lakes Brewing Co. This Ale has an ABV of 6.50% The ale pours out a nice light brown color, with a nice white head. The smell of Great Lakes Conway's Irish Ale is rich, with flavor. You pick up on grains, malts and hops. Now for the taste it bold with flavor. You pick up on malts and grains in this brew. Conway's Irish Ale has a nice balance to it, there is nothing overpowering in this brew. The mouthfeel is nice clean and rich. There is a nice smoothness to this brew. It is hard to pick up on the 6.5% in this brew, not saying that it a bad thing. Great Lakes Brewing Co., did a nice job with this one. I would buy this brew again. Overall I'm giving Conway's Irish Ale a 4.5 out of 5.

Pours orange with good clarity and long lasting head of tannish foam that clings in streaks and spots. Nose is malty and sweet with caramel and a buttery toasty nutty scent. Light floral and grass with a vague fruitiness. Sweet grain. Taste follows the nose. Extremely pleasant. Smooth malt brings plenty of flavor to the palate as the hops are just blushing in the background with a light fruitiness and sweet grass. Mouthfeel is medium and this finishes not quite dry with a supple malty resonance. The hops are only in the finish for balance and this one drinks like a charm. An easy going laid back sipper from great lakes.
