Pours a dark caramel like appearance. Has a small head that stays thin enough to drink through but there the whole way through. It has a bread like smell. It tastes like bread almost at first and then has a calm flavor afterwards with a bread like after taste. It is a good beer that goes down smooth would be good with a traditional Irish dinner. Will get this again.

Poured from a 12oz brown bottle into a clear glass mug. Best by 032511 on label. Received as gift from brother Greg.

A: Pleasing amber-brown with solid, tightly bubbled 1-2 finger off-white head with good retention and some scattered lacing.

S: Grainy, malty nose with plenty of biscuit notes, but the citrus hoppiness is restrained but a nice complement to the caramel and biscuit aromas.

T: The flavor is a classic amber with upfront biscuity, caramel maltiness and a moderate citrus hoppiness. The cereal graininess has a big but not overwhelming presence.

M: The beer is not very dry but has a lush mouthfeel. The carbonation is low and contributes to the creamy smoothness.

O: I enjoyed this brew a lot -- it is unsung in the Great Lakes lineup and provides a nice example of a superdrinkable amber ale.

Poured a golden amber with a thick off-white head. Light carbonation

The smell, right out of the bottle, was strong malty scent with a little vanilla. It reminded me a vanilla malt from United Dairy Farmer's ice cream counter. A little hop scent became apparent as the pint had time to breath.

The taste starts with a wallop of hops that gives way to a nice malty flavor that turns a little sweet. The sweetness fades over the length of the pint, leaving a very nice flavor similar to an IPA.

The mouthfeel is just right, not too heavy, not too light.

This is a very drinkable brew, quite enjoyable with a nice mix of taste.
