12 ounce bottle shared by cdumler. Thanks! Pours a clear reddish orange color with a medium head. head retention and lacing. Fine carbonation is visible. Aroma is fruity with notes of apricot, caramel and nuts. Taste is elementary school fruit cocktail... peach, pineapple, syrup and whatnot. Also caramel and some faint earthy notes. Full bodied,

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great Lakes usually provides exemplary models for the beers they create, and the fact that this brew is merely above average is kind of a letdown. Still, it’s pretty good. Deep ruby amber color with a medium beige head and thin lacing. The aroma is roasted malt and caramel. Medium-bodied and on the carbonated side, with flavors of sweet malt, light hops and a bit of fruit. The finish is clean and somewhat sweet. Overall pretty good, but I just know GLBC could knock this one out of the park if they really wanted to.

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

Enormous initial head, looks roasty, light colour. Very fresh draft-lkike taste. A bit of roast and alcohol in aroma, fairly neutral. Mild, creamyish mouthfeel, light body close to watery. Easy drink, bitter with mild roastiness.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Mild toffee malt aroma. Amber with large light tan head. Sweet toffee malt initially but switches to a buttery ginseng/gentian root bitter finish. Not a fan of this combination of flavors. (Best by 4/24/13).

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.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is bready malt and caramel, similar flavor with a light fruit flavor. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a clear reddish amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a light grassy hop note with a bit biscuit and a good amount of sweet grains. Flavor is quite sweet with biscuit and sweet grains and not much of a hop profile.
