I need something to finish my peanuts at the hockey game. It was local in Detroit so I gave it a shot. A bit boring. Brown color with a decent head and good lacing. Subdued smell with a slightly sweet bready taste. It was ok.

Just call this biscuit beer or bread in a bottle as it's big on bread flavor and yeast to the nose. Hardly and hop flavor that I could pick up. I prefer my beers with bold or robust flavors and smells. It's just too mild for my taste but I get why it might be popular with other beer drinkers.

Hugely popular in the D but it's lost on me.

Not exciting, but solid enough. No nose to speak of, very muddy-puddle appearance, but nice toasty-biscuit taste, little hay note, good balance of those elements with dry-leaning brown sugars, and overall within the boundaries of the style. It lacks depth, and hasn't much in the way of innovation or explosion; all the same, in no way could I call it bad.

At 7:00am in DTW after a red-eye, "not bad" and mildly local equates to pretty good.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a nonic pint glass

This beer pours burnt orange with amber highlights. It is capped with two inches of beige head that leaves some decent lacing.

The smell is of toast, toffee, and caramel.

It starts out with toffee and caramel flavors. Then comes toasted malt with an almost but not quite burnt toast flavor.

Medium mouthfeel

This is a flavorful mild. It is quaffable and doesn't bore the palate.

Too bad my 500th review wasn't that great. D'ohwell, didn't feel a long review on such a mediocre beer

On draft, served in pint glass. Clear dark copper color, thin head that fades. Biscuit malty aroma, earthy. Similar taste. Thin to medium body, average carbonation
