look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 ounce bottle, poured into a pint glass.

Been a while since I have had something from Great Lakes. It has an appearance of a light amber tone with a one finger had. The nose has pine and citrus hops. While the taste has quite a bit of malt, more hops, orange and other citrus fruit. MF is medium with a nice, crisp, dry fisish. A pretty good pale ale, but nothing special.
