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.

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!
