My favorite of the flight I just had here at the granite city brew and food at the Indy airport. This one pours a light amber and tastes like a weak coffee with hazelnut creamer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2013
Tap at GC Madison. Burgundy tinted-brown with an excessive head. Sweet brown sugar aroma, maybe a touch of coffee. True to style, albeit a little thin and watery. Nutty, smooth lager tones. Smooth brown chocolate. Mild, decent beer.

kambei70 (601) - - APR 7, 2013
Tried at Granite City Brewery in Kansas City. Part of a flight. Found all of the beers to be watered down and mediocre at best. This was the best of the lot. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nsanders (500) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2013
Medium red brown with a medium off-white head. Lightly roasted malts, nutty, and light caramel aromas. Flavor is lightly sweet, quickly fading. Lighter bodied. Plain and simple, but not bad.
