A: Very clear copper body topped with a respectable creamy off-white head. About average in the carbonation department. Looks a little bit like tea. Left very small traces of lacing.
S: Up front smell of toasted grain to bread-y malt with noticeable floral to herbal hop aroma in the background.
T&M: Medium body with a straightforward flavor similar to the nose. Toasted malt, herbal hops, toffee, caramel, and pepper spiciness come to mind. Carbonation is medium at best and the finish is relatively clean.
D: Solid brew to be sure. I have yet to taste a poor offering from Great Lakes, and this is no exception. I think they hit the nail on the head by calling this a "meat and potatoes'" kind of beer on the label. It's a no frills, solid, good tasting beer. Recommend.

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.
