Great Lakes Conway's Irish Ale

Great Lakes Conway's Irish Ale. An Irish Style Ale. Brewed and bottled by Great Lakes Brewing Co., Cleveland, Ohio. 6.5% ABV, 25 IBU.

Clear, amber/copper color, slim white head.

In the nose: malt-forward, earthy, floral hops, low-bitterness. Well-balanced, but leaning toward the sweet side.

In the mouth: Flat out tasty. Again, terrific balancing act, malty sweet with just enough hop bitterness. Kissed by caramel. Medium body, malty finish, drinkable as all heck. Well done.

"A pint for Pa Conway! Our co-founder's grandfather and policeman who'd likely uphold that an Irish Ale with full-bodied caramel malt flavors is just the ticket."

Ha. Ticket. Police. Irish. I get it.
