3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear copper/brown color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet malts, grain, caramel and hops with a bit of a pine note. Taste is toasted malts with sweet-like fruit notes and grassy hops. Light-to-medium bodied. Smooth, and very easy to drink.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Clear dark amber with creamy head. Caramel, toffee, whatever that stale old barleywine flavor I always think of as caramel prunes. Taste follows, along with copper and cola. Finish is lightly bitter, but otherwise pretty sweet. Light body, lively carbonation. Overall: this doesn’t really work for me.

Very middle of the road but good. A good solid offering from a good brewer. I like the ease in which this brew goes down. Enjoyable.

I thought I rated this beer. I have had this beer several times and think its really good. Reminds me of boston lager with more malt and somewhat sweeter. Has nice body and goes down smooth.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange-tinted amber in the pour is nice to look at and it provides a smooth and relatively heavy mouthfeel, otherwise nothing really special here. Grainy malts and maybe a touch too sweet.

Out of the bottle with the boys. Aroma is nutty and malty with some caramel notes. Pours amber with a small but frothy white head. Taste is malt forward with notes of marshmallow and figs. Great warm malt mouthfeel without being too sweet. Solid vienna.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours slightly hazy deep amber, finger thin head, thin lacing. Aroma toasted bread, caramel, floral hops. Taste folows nose, slightly bitter, enough sweetness to balance. Mouthfeel medium body and carbonation, clean, balanced finish. Overall real nice beer, tasty and well made, another great Great Lakes beer.
