Smooth easy drinker from Great Lakes. Pours a brilliant copper color with a very thin white head and light lacing. Nose of caramel malts. Taste is up front light brown sugar and caramel with a crisp clean aftertaste that satisfies. Light carbonated mouthfeel makes it an excellent session beer and a good beginner brew for the new beer nut palate. It is worth noting that this beer varies a bit year to year, just like many Great Lakes brews. Some times more malty, sometimes thinner, but all in all highly quaffable.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours orange red with a small white head that dissipates but leaves a tad of lacing. Smells of lightly roasted barley with a little but ad fruit, grape jumping out the most. Tastes of medium roasted malt with a bit of creaminess. Beer is light-medium bodied with good carbonation and nice finish. Overall a pretty good beer.
