egggsellennnntt! very nice beer from GLB. pours a nice reddish amba. bood carbonation and lace. nice hop flava that marries well with a sweet fruit. a nice balance.

very drinkable, specially on a cool winters day by the fire.

i admit that i am a lover of Great Lakes Brewing. this one is no exception. not as heavy as some irish ales but a much better example of one than Killians.

suckem up and movem out!

The day after St.Patrick's Day...

This brew pours out a clear, reddish brown with a little off-white head. Some lingers throughout. My initial impression of the aroma is that's it's mostly malt - caramel, and a little hops. Nothing really particular in the nose. The taste is also creamy and sweet, but really well-balanced at the end. I notice a grassy, sort of mossy flavor, too, slightly minty in the aftertaste. So far this one is hitting all the right notes for me. It's very pleasant in the mouth, too, perfectly carbonated and just the right consistency. On top of that, it's just sliding down, too, so I'm really happy with this one.

This is a seasonal from Great Lakes. I hear they only make one batch every year. The beer pours a hazy dark orange/red color. The head is creamy and lingers for quite some time. Lots of lacing clings to the pint glass as you drink. The nose has some fruit and spice. The taste is quite mild with a mellow taste almost like tea. The malts are sweet and the hops are subdued. Although the alcohol is a little higher than some, it would make for a nice session beer. This is a keeper!

This beer pours a clear bright red color. The head is one inch in height, and recedes quickly into a small cap of lacing. The aroma is of tea leaves, toast, caramel and toffee. The taste is slightly maltier than the aroma, but still quite balanced. There are some very nice strong tea notes that blend well with the toffee, and caramel of the malt. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, and a smooth texture. Overall, this beer is really, really good, and spot on for the style. I will certainly be drinking a lot of this while its around.

Pours a coppery color, very clear, good head which dissipated fairly quickly, trace lacing.

Smell: Sweet malty smell, maybe a bit grainy.

Taste: Beautiful balance of sweetness and bitterness, neither particularly dominates. Almost has a root beer-like taste up front.

Mouthfeel: Nicely carbonated, full bodied beer. Pleasantly warming.

Drinkability: Another hit from GLBC. This is a very nice offering, not too overwhelming, I could see myself drinking a few of these tonight. Way to go, Great Lakes.
