Good and malty. Has a nice smooth taste. One of the better great lakes but nothing special yet solid.

bottle. Pours red with thick head that lasted entire glass. Aroma and taste toasted malts, on the sweeter side but well balanced. Nothing too complex but good enough.

ross (2075) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Bottles. Darker colored pour with an off white head. Smell is fruity and malty with a little bit of hops. Taste similar, easy to drink, not really a winter warmer, but it comes close. Not a bad beer that is usually easy to obtain in the winter months.

Bottle into pint glass. Light golden-amber color with some white lace. Aroma of toast, toffee, nuts with a light grassy hop note. Taste is heavy malt sweetness, caramel, bready, grainy, some roast with very minimal hop bitterness for balance. Moderate body, average carbonation, sweet, somewhat earthy with a dry finish. I’m convinced after a few ratings this isn’t my style. It’s not from lack of trying though!

TwoSipDip (8948) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle @ home via trade with barak316. Thanks Bill! Pours a clear, dark rust orange appearance with a cream colored head. Quite nutty, very toasty malty, big toffee, caramel, biscuity aroma. Cracker, toasty malty, light roast, a touch fruity, nutty flavor with a somewhat bitter, floral hoppy finish. Not bad.

Old rate. Really a style that doesn’t fit anywhere. This one is maltier but still confusing.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber to copper body with a small frothy off-white head that left a bit of light lacing. The nose is pretty standard for the style, dry toasty malt with a touch of light yeast and a minimal touch of hops. The flavor is toasted malt with a little too much residual sweetness for my tastes. It almost tastes as though it’s a little under attenuated, but I feel like that this is what they were going for. Just a little caramel and fruitiness on the finish. Light bodied and a touch husky in texture with soft fizzy carbonation. I didn’t really care for this one all that much, I don’t think there’s a brewing flaw in here, it’s just something that doesn’t turn me on.

12 ounce bottle poured a light amber color with aromas of light caramel, light roast, some hay, and a touch of biscuit. Flavors are the same, light haying he aftertaste, nice beer overall.
