Had this one on tap at the brewpub. Described as a dark lager on the board. Named after the Macatawa River.

Comes to me, in the stupid mason jar, a dark black, very dark with a slight creamy dark tan head. Strong roasted aroma, almost burnt and a little smoky, somewhat reminiscent of the Cole Porter in aroma. Taste is smooth with notes of coffee, maybe some chocolate, and lots of grain huskiness. The burnt, smoky aspects don't really seem to be there in the flavor. Finishes slightly bitter with what I believe to be the hops coming through. Body is a bit thin but not too bad. Easy to drink a few of these for sure. Definitely worth a try.
