cherry-copper in color with a foamy, soapy, grey and audibly popping head. Sweet caramel biscuits roll out the aroma, along with hints of honeyed oats, bran flakes, molasses snap cookies and a slight copper kiss. Sweet hazelnuts and subtly smooth caramel team with sugared bran for the primary flavor onset. Heartier profile than expected. Sticky toffee chews with Irish cream flavored nougat in the center. Medium-bodied, slightly thick and oily, and a substantive palate load, especially considering its parameters. Sweet caramel creations and dead-on carbonation levels contribute to a formidable, balanced end quotient. Cedar smoothness, butter almond, pistachios and vanilla bring things to a close.

Smooth easy drinker from Great Lakes. Pours a brilliant copper color with a very thin white head and light lacing. Nose of caramel malts. Taste is up front light brown sugar and caramel with a crisp clean aftertaste that satisfies. Light carbonated mouthfeel makes it an excellent session beer and a good beginner brew for the new beer nut palate. It is worth noting that this beer varies a bit year to year, just like many Great Lakes brews. Some times more malty, sometimes thinner, but all in all highly quaffable.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours orange red with a small white head that dissipates but leaves a tad of lacing. Smells of lightly roasted barley with a little but ad fruit, grape jumping out the most. Tastes of medium roasted malt with a bit of creaminess. Beer is light-medium bodied with good carbonation and nice finish. Overall a pretty good beer.
