A: Pours a blood red and is topped by a finger width of off white head, copious amounts of lacing coat the glass. A lot of carbonation can be seen.

S: Hops and malt are both prevalent in the nose. There is plenty of caramel and biscuit like notes that are toned down by earthy hops.

T: Given the fact that this beer is towards the end of its self life the hop characteristics are toned down quite a bit. However, I do know that the hops are there normally. It is balanced with a pretty impressive malt profile as well. Biscuit, toffee, caramel, and some fruity characteristics are all there the alcohol is well hidden.

M: Perfectly rounded enough carbonation to make the complex flavor easily quaffable.

In my opinion, this is the best bottled beer great lakes offers!
