Artie explains the taste the best. Looks like a light beer. Has a hopy after taste bit not overwhelming.

In my expert opinion this is the best tasting great lakes beer. Only problem with the beer is it is brewed in Cleveland which is the trash can of America.

Partly my dislike is because I missed the part right on the label saying this is a pale ale. I bought it and poured it expecting porter. I’m not a pale ale fan. But, very hoppy, start to finish. Clear amber. Short lasting head. A good pale ale. A really bad porter #8{)

amber color; piney, citrusy hop aroma with caramel and toasted malt notes; an excellent, well balanced, bitter pale ale with a citrusy, piney hop character on a bready malt base with caramel notes

Pours golden orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of pine, citrus, floral hops, sweet malts, and some bready malts. Taste is similar to the aroma with the addition of some herbal and grassy hops. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel with a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty, drinkable, and hoppy pale ale.
