3.8/5  rDev -6.6%

Poured bottle into glass. 6.5% abv

Appearance- Light amber and semi clear. One finger head that dissipates.

Smell- Strong and sweet smell of caramel malts and that of fresh bread.

Taste- A fresh flavor of toasted bread drifts into the rich sweetness of caramel malt. Finishes clean and sharp.

Mouthfeel- Thin but lively and crisp.

Overall- A refreshing and good example of this Fall seasonal. A good offering by Great lakes.

One of the best examples of the style I have had. Bready, fresh, and malty. I could definitely do a six of these.
