A- appears blond with a slight reddish tint.
S- citrus smell is stonger than spice smell. THe aroma is there, but it is by no means overpowering.
T- hoppy but under control flavor. creates the desire to have another one in order to be fulfilled.
M&D- swirls around the mouth to create a slight wooden flavor. A beer you could stick to all night. also a great beer to convert the bud crowd, as it is a very easy drink but still has some flavor.
Serving type: bottle

Poured from the bottle into a snifter at around 45°F
Appearance: Pale amber color with a two finger off white/light beige head. A very good looking beer
Smell: Sweet, toasted, bready malts with undertones of citrus hops.
Taste: Same as smell. Wish there was a little more hops to balance out the malts
Mouthfeel: Light medium body; Smooth, dinkable, and refreshing
Overall: For me, this is one of those beers that I enjoyed more when I was first getting into crafts. Now it's too malty and not enough hops for my liking. More like an EPA. However, it's still tasty and easy to go down. Great Lakes is very reasonably priced in my area so that's what's going to keep me coming back to this beer.
Serving type: on-tap
