    Crisp dark orange color with a tight white head. There's nothing overpowering in this, and that's why I like it. It just tastes good! If you really want to search for flavors, you'll get some bread, a little bit of roast, maybe a hint of apple (but not sour) at the end.

    Simple, but very good.

    This is one of the first really good beers that I have ever had. My son is really into craft beer gave me this to try. It has a nice malty and bready flavor, unlike the mass produced bitter watery beers like Budweiser and Miller that have a ruff fizzy texture and nasty aftertaste. I also noticed that Conway’s has a nice hop flavor and aroma with light bitterness. I absolutely love this beer!!!

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

    Appearance: The body has light amber honey color with very good clarity. On top it forms a big creamy off white colored head. The head slowly fades but hangs on well and make cool rings of lace on the glass.

    Smell: The aroma is mostly sweet with hints of lightly roasted grains, bready yeast, light hops and some mild fruit notes.

    Taste/Mouth Feel: Its flavor has a good solid medium body with a sweet malty character that is tempered with just enough leafy hops for some balance. There are notes of bread, light caramel malt, orange marmalade and mild hops. The palate is smooth, slightly slick and easy drinking with mellow carbonation.

    Notes: I love Great Lakes and this is one of my favorites. I also converted my mother and step father to craft beer with this Irish Ale! How cool is that!!!
