Poured a golden amber with a thick off-white head. Light carbonation
The smell, right out of the bottle, was strong malty scent with a little vanilla. It reminded me a vanilla malt from United Dairy Farmer's ice cream counter. A little hop scent became apparent as the pint had time to breath.
The taste starts with a wallop of hops that gives way to a nice malty flavor that turns a little sweet. The sweetness fades over the length of the pint, leaving a very nice flavor similar to an IPA.
The mouthfeel is just right, not too heavy, not too light.
This is a very drinkable brew, quite enjoyable with a nice mix of taste.

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.
