A- Amber with a head that quickly dissipated. lots of fast moving carbonation rising.
S- Malt and sweetness
T- pleasant to drink, with a nice Carmel malt flavor.
M- Medium body that lingers on the tongue.
O- This looks good, tastes good, its a great lager. I tried another Great Lakes offering and again they succeed.

I find Eliot Ness to be simply one of those "fridge" beers one can enjoy anytime... Definitely a Go To, Everyday beer that's quite drinkable and doesn't kill one's palate. A nice brownish-amber color, crisp somewhat malty nose and a pleasant, smooth taste.. Probably, my favorite lager...
