Single bottle (best by 04/08/10) poured into a tumbler.
Appearance: Coppery orange-red color. 1/16" persistent off-white foam across the top and some lacing is noted as I drink it down. Nice amount of bubbling coming up in the glass.
Smell: Some roasted malts with a hoppy finish.
Taste: Very nice - malt up front quickly covered by bitterness and then a toasted malt (biscuity) finish and aftertaste. Quite tasty and very balanced.
Mouthfeel: Some carbonation on the tongue, goes down quick. A little bit thick but not at all in a bad way.
Drinkability: I could easily have more than one of these - perfect for a quench of thirst, with a meal, or just enjoying.

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.
