Bottle was part of a Great Lakes Variety Case.

Enjoyed in a DFH Pint Glass

A - Pour a mostly transparent reddish-amber color. A decent two finger head on the initial pour that lasts a good amount of time. Lots of sticky lacing left on the glass.

A - A very malty sweetness is the dominate aroma.

T - A really good lager. A distinct caramel sweetness is the first taste that hits you. A yeasty, bready taste is also present. The beer's 6.2 ABV isn't that high or noticeable but it's consistancy is on the heavier side which means I wouldn't consider it a beer I'd have more than one or two of at a sitting.

M - A decently carbonated beer. Leaves a sweet coating on the palette.

O - Another well crafted beer from GL. Not a style I generally drink but quite tasty indeed.

Cheers!
