Paid $13.99 for a 12pk. Great Lakes mixed sampler...
The appearence is another beauty by GLBC... Bronze-Copper color body with a tanish-white head and great retention and a beautiful lacing effect. The aroma is of a faint malty caramel one, pleasent, nothing great.
The taste is a good solid mix of hops, coffee, caramel, not too heavy, not too light... The drinkability is nice on the palette and smooth for a 6.2% lager. The drinkability is very "do-able" for a mini-session beer...
Final Thought: GLBC has a great mix and diverse tasting beer lineup, and this one never disappoints from start to finish...

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!
