Bottle from Champagne’s. Hits the spot, better than I thought. Malty aroma. A good balance of malt complexity, not too sweet. Very good drinkability

On tap at the Mackinac Island Draught House. Pours a clear deep amber with a near white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has notes of sweet bread and biscuit with a leafy backbone. Flavor has more of an earthy bread note with leaves and grass backing.

16oz can, purchased about a month ago from the Woodstock Wine & Cheese. Shared with friends 3 ways. Toasty, caramel malt nose. Kind of spicy. Hazy amber color. Thin white head, leaving decent bits of lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft carbonation. Kind of soft, crisp lighter carbonation. Kind of dry. Eh. Yeah, kind of carboardy. A whatever amber / altbier. Not smooth enough to drink on your own, OK to share I guess. Wonder how old this is? No date on the can I could find

I had a couple of glasses as G’s in West Branch. It poured mid brown and had a nice thick frothy beige head. Thinner lacing. A malty aroma and this tasyed quite malty. Nice sweet fruit is pleasnt. Gentle hops are cotrus. Yeast is fairly big and brings biscuits. This is a nice beer for a place like G’s. It is very easy to drink with very little bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle pour thanks to drsilverworm. The beer is a clear amber color with a beige head of foam. Its kind of a musty, smelling beer with notes of toffee and a moderate spice. The taste has some sweetness and a dry bitterness. Maybe this example is past its prime, but it just didnt have much good going on.
