4.1/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Paid $6.99 for a 6-pack...

The beer pours a clear amber base with a medium white head, 20 minute head retention and a few traces on the glass. The aroma is a subtle mix of orange(?) and a spicy hop mixture.

The taste is pretty lo-key but the mix gives it just enough to enjoy it, low-to-medium body and minimal carbonation. The M&D factors raise the beer, the subtle flavor makes it easy on the palette and this is probably the ESB session beer, so I'll mark it a '5'.

Final Thought: A subtle flavored ESB that has session written all over it, a great brew by Great Lakes!
