look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Can into shaker pint glass. Two finger light brown head over amber to red-brown body. High carbonation

Smells of caramel and chocolate, maybe a hint of cinnamon is present in the nose as well.

Taste: herbal with malt, the caramel and cocoa come out and shine at this point. The finish is a floral light hop, but I'm unsure of how to describe it. The booze really shines at the finish as well.

Mouthfeel: Thick and creamy!

Overall, this is a great beer! I'm becoming more fond of Great River as time passes, and I can happily say I have visited them once. I think I may pick this up again soon!

4.19/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Serving type: 16-ounce can. No freshness date.

Appearance: Poured into a nonic pint glass. When I started pouring I thought, “That looks pretty f***g sinister for a lager.” The color is clear, ruby/mahogany. A finger of slightly tanned head dissipated slowly to leave a skim and thin collar of foam.

Smell: Fruity and sweet like a maibock. Apple, raisin, prune, strawberry licorice, sweet caramel, perhaps a little toffee, and helles grassiness.

Taste: It has a nice, medium-bodied mouthfeel. The flavor is sweet at first, but toasted malts slowly emerge to give it a nice balance. Apple, raisin, prune, not so much strawberry licorice but it is present, sweet caramel, and helles grassiness. That’s when smooth toastiness comes into play to offer a countering bitterness.

Drinkability: This is tasty and well-crafted stuff. Great River usually goes big and bold (except with Roller Dam Red) and this is no exception.
