3.2/5 rDev -17.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a snifter.
A: Pours a deep but clear dark reddish-brown color, with a finger of foamy, off-white head, which diminishes to a thin film which coats the beer for the remainder of its time in the glass.
S: Tons of malts here; extremely bready and bisciuty, with a rich fruity sweetness lingering in the background.
T: Bready with dark fruits once again, and hints of ethanol in the background. Not particularly complex or enjoyable, but there's nothing damning against it either.
M: Thin-medium body with moderate carbonation; mostly smooth with a hint of an ethanol/bubbly burn on the way down. Slightly dry finish (for the style at least, something I haven't really encountered before), and a lingering sugary feel.
D: This goes down easily enough, but the not-particularly-complex, mostly sweet flavor isn't appealing enough for me to really enjoy my glass. Though I did buy a 4-pack of this, my other bottles may hang around the fridge for a while (and this is coming from an ordinarily huge fan of Great Lakes).
