Served on tap at GLBC.

A- Pours a red copper color with a medium sized head that leaves a bit of lace.

S- Smell is mostly of fruit and a bit of spicy hops. Very subtle but seems on par for the style.

T- Nice caramel malt flavor initially with some ripe fruit and biscuit and nutty flavors. A fairly noticeable hop presence in the finish that seems like one of the noble varieties.

M- Very clean and smooth on the palate with medium low carbonation.

O- Overall a very enjoyable beer and one that I could see pairing with a variety of everyday meals. (555 characters)

Named after the traffic light, first installed in Cleveland. Poured a red color with a very small head. Head retention was poor. Looked like a good solid Irish Red.

Smelled of a simple ale with a bitter hop smell that was very subdued.

The taste was a train wreck. Actually, I'd prefer the train wreck. Very astringent, to the point that its a turn-off. The only malt flavors I got were adjunct and bad.

The bad flavors tend to stick around through to the finish unfortunately.

I hate to rip apart a GL brew, but they missed the boat on this one. (558 characters)
