This is another incredible beer from Great Lakes and to me pretty much the perfect pizza beer.

Deep reddish copper, it has a big tan head slowly shrinking to rich frothy ring, rich wisps, some lace.

Aroma is strong caramelised toasty bread crust, winy/sough bread dough, woody herb, hint of dried fruit.

Taste is string, rich caramelised toast, strong woody herbal hop, toasty, peppery, woody herbal bitterness. It has frim balanced character, complexity, a warm winy-toasty-dried fruit malty sweetness to round out the hop.

Another example of Great Lakes' mastery of lagers. Nice noble hop presence here, some slightly sweet toasty bready malt flavors, and a really wonderful crispness. It's got a wonderful fullness that belies the lower ABV. As drinkable as it gets. Always worth a revisit.
