3.38/5  rDev -14.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured into a pint glass and I loved the look. Dark bronze hue and a full inch of head that left silky remnants on the glass.

The smell was also very pleasant and made my mouth start to water.

Upon tasting though I liked it, but wasn't crazy as the bitterness of it was not as smooth but actually kinda over bearing.

The mouthfeel was average and the carbonation seemed pretty light.

All in all I'd definetely drink it again but it is not as tasty as some of the other beers from Great Lakes.
