Great Lakes Elliot Ness
LOOK: Copper colored brew, perfectly clear. White soapy froth leaves plenty of bubbly lacing.
SMELL: Bready malts with minty, herbal hops. Light caramel, toffee and toasted malts.
TASTE: Caramel, rich bready malt profile, and solid earthy hop presence. Richly malty, as well as clean and refreshing.
FEEL: Mediun bodied, well carbonated, very smooth.
OVERALL: Another very solid offering from Great Lakes. A perfect lager for any occasion. I can picture this going just fine with baby back ribs and a loaded baked potato.
Serving type: on-tap

12oz bottle, best by 7/28/2014, poured into a FFF pint glass 7/18/2014.
A- Clear amber body with a one finger tan head, good retention, leaves a fuzzy film on top, lots of lacing all around.
S- Sweet toffee malt, earthy noble hops, some caramel, crisp banana bread, yeast. Sweet but not cloyingly so and in a refreshing way.
F- Toffee, caramel, hint of raisin, a little banana (hence banana bread in the nose), earthiness, and the signature GLBC yeast flavour. This is excellent, not perfect but just about as outstanding as any brewer can make a Vienna lager.
M- Medium bodied, refreshing and crisp yet smooth and silky at the same time. They did a great job on this one. Very drinkable, no real effects of the ABV on the flavour at all.
O- Excellent take on the style, as I would expect from GLBC and their tradition of brewing excellent lagers. Why I never reviewed this before, I'm not sure, but I ought to get around to reviewing their other offerings as well!
