Bottle poured into a pint glass.

A- The body was a hazy, straw yellow. There was a 1 finger white head that dropped to a solid lace that left some nice sticky spots as I drank. It had a somewhat heavy carbonation level.

S- The aroma was a nice mix of light fruit smells, doughy malts, and lighter hops.

T- There were more doughy flavors mixed with some moderate grassy hops. There was also a slight fruity flavor and a dry finish.

M- It had a medium-heavy carbonation level and a slightly chewy feel.

D- This is a very easy drinker. I had it with a grilled sausage dish and can see myself knocking back a few while sitting on the deck or out at the beach this summer.

If anyone remembers the original Sebewaing Beer, you should remember that it tasted alot different than the MBC recreation. Appearance: The MBC beer has a different bottle of course and I think it would be rather difficult to find the original stub bottles. The labeling is pretty much the same, still looks good I think. The coloring of the beer is a nice golden color, clean with a nice head.
Smell: The smell of the beer is another area that I think is a detrimental issue with the beer. It smells clean and pure, like the appearance.
Taste: The BIGGEST difference in the two eras. Much better taste than the original, not as sharp on the tounge. Yet you can distinguish different flavors.
Mouthfeel: Nice feel, rich, robust but not "chunky" feeling.
Drinkability: Not to sound like a drunk, but after a few during a nice Porterhouse, we tended to go a little overboard and ended up finishing the case we had bought but the initial feeling was pretty good.

Another from MBC's "Retro" beers. A nice interpretation of a blonde ale. Pours out to a (gasp) blonde golden color with a nice head of white foam that calmed to about 1/8 of an inch and remained consistant. Some lace, and a medium level of carbonation. Aromas were a light and fresh mix of yeasty buttery malts, hops and biscuts. Nice. Taste was light to medium light bodied; flavors of buttery malts and mild hops dominated, with notes of caramel malts and wheat. Mouthfeel was fair. Drinkability is good. Another cool quaffer from MBC. I'd love to see this in a can with the sweet logo and graphics.

Tasted at the brewery taproom. MBC brewed this special edition re-creation of the Sebewaing brand (1880-1965) for Sebewaing Township's 150th anniversary. Taste is crisp and light like a lager, but without lager yeast bite. This was available in "historic label" cans, especially their flagship pheasant label at Sebewaing stores this past summer. Nosing around for information on the web, I also found Sebewaing had its own "Old Style." Wonder what the story was with that one.
