12oz bottles shared by SoLAn. Pours darker golden color with small white head. Nose is hoppy and bit of malts. Flavor is kinda sweet at first followed by the hops. Balances it out and the finish is bitter and dry.

Pretty much what it advertises. Citrus start with some malt undertones followed by a long dry piney slightly bitter finish. Wasn’t bad, just not special.

I guess my rating might be biased because I am from Pittsburgh but this beer is just ok. Nothing special to write home about. After taste is ok. Overall taste is fine. GL has some better products like Chill Wave but it's not available year round.

Pour is bright copper with a white, one finger head. Aroma is citrus and floral. Taste is a little bitter and hoppy, with some malt and floral hints toward the finish. Body is medium overall. Overall it’s a great example of the APA style.

tectactoe (2632) - Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Tap @ Great Lakes: Super clear caramel orange body with a small, gray tinted dollar tracing the top. Floral & citrus aroma with a solid toasted malt background. Grapefruit, toast, candied orange peel, & some faint herbal hops. Slightly sweet caramel in the back to balance the hops. Flavorful, not bad.

Canned vegetables, corn husks, and dandelion bouquet. Clear amber, medium head. Dandelion, honey, and hay, good intensity, but again with significant DMS present. Tinny as well. Hop forward and flavorful, but flawed.

MrHangover (2921) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear amber beer with a bright white head on top. Aroma is rather hoppy, grapefruit and some slight malts. Flavor is moderately bitter, touches of tropical fruits als slight herbal. Mellow carbonation, short aftertaste.

Look: pours a bright orange. White head. Thick lacing very clear. Smell: very sweet. Caramel. Orange. Honey. Apple juice. Taste: honey. Slight bitterness. Apple juice. Feel: thick film on the mouth. Medium carbonation. Overall: good beer. Not what I expected. Thought there would be more bitterness. First drank: home 1/1/15

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{)
