A: This is a light walnut-colored beer. The pour developed a significant head, fading after a minute to a solid half-inch.
S: Bready, with a lot of caramel.
T: Good malt, with crusty, toasted bread notes and light caramel. Bitterness keeps the sweetness at bay, and adds some earthy hop flavor. Finish is relatively dry.
M: Neutral texture, medium carbonation.

Well-crafted. In fact, nearly every beer in GL's lineup has been good. I'd never had them before last week.
