Grabbed a bottle at the brewery while I was visiting my parents- pours a dark amber color with about a finger of light beige head, decent retention and good lacing.

Smells of malted barley and caramel with some light floral notes from the hops.

Tastes very good- rich but crisp. Definitely a good amount of hop flavor and bitterness: definitely floral and kinda earthy. Pronounced caramel at the end and a nice malt flavor to round the whole thing out.

Mouthfeel is nice- medium full bodied, well carbonated. I like this beer but like many from Great Lakes it's not a knockout. Worth getting for sure though.

Big fan of Great Lakes and they have produced another good one here. Red Ale that pours and settles well.
Head is foamy and about 1/2 inch. Red Ales can go light on flavor but this one does not. Feel is hoppy and tasty.
Cooler summer day in the Mid-Atlantic and this is a good beer to enjoy today.
