3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This seems to me to be a great session ale. Pours a clear amber-red, with a thin head, leaving some faint lacing behind. The aroma is very sweet, but that is not reflected in the beer itself. Nothing in the taste really stands out to me, but overall it is a good solid beer.

Not great, not awful. Pours a clear orange color with a little foam. The aroma is mild caramel, sweet fruit, nuts, grass. The flavor is adds apple and sweet tea notes. I didn’t hate it.

Strange aroma....almost like an acidic tomato. Very weird. The initial taste is almost veg-like and fills the nasal. I like the slight sour and burn left on the palate. This is good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: March 17, 2016... GLASSWARE:Brew at the Zoo pint.. OCCASION: St. Patrick’s Day--observed with an appropriate Irishman... APPEARANCE: dark orange amber, almost browning, body that cascades bubbles in a balanced and full manner; the head is off-white creamy and thick, holding at a full finger... the glass drain approaches lacing appearing almost as webbing... AROMA: surprisingly hoppy, with tangerine and mango wafting with flowery scents to evoke a pale without the resin... oven-raised dough and caramel make for a balanced suggestion--hearty yet accessible... PALATE: immediate presence at the throat, kicking open the door with its maltiness and leaving a thick, toasted residue in its wake... the hops soften at the teeth, with little suggestion or staying power there... medium-bodied, warming (at 6.5%, formidable) and worth mulling over after each sip... lively...TASTE: the toastiness is overt, with toffee and caramel demanding attention... the hops are light and afford some fruitiness--apple, tangerine... a slight basement dankness is winning, as it adds strength to each sip... some nuttiness and buttery hints jam as many different angles into the profile as it seems possible... OVERALL: Great Lakes continues to impress, this time with a style that comes across as a workingman’s ale braced for the month of March... flavorful, refreshing, bolstering...definitely worth the six I picked up just for the holiday...
