A: Pours a light amber color with a soft, white head. The head dies fast and lives on as a light, white lace. Carbonation is a bit on the stronger end.
S: Pleasant toastiness, light, honey like sweetness. A hint of a metallic aroma. Very little hop aroma, but I do detect some "Fuggle-like" characteristics. Finishing aroma is a little biscuty.
T: Beautiful, light malt flavors with biscut and toasty flavors abound. Almost nearing a graham cracker crust flavor. A light caramel-honey sweetness. Finishes with light bitterness to balance things out. Very nice,simple, malt flavors.
M: Light bodied. Crisp carbonation may be a bit too much for the style. Finishes clean.
D: A very drinkable ale. The flavors are complex enough to make this interesting, yet not so over the top you can drink just one. I expect this has a very broad appeal to the craft lover and non-craft lover. Quite enjoyable. I'll drink this again in a heartbeat.

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.
