Draft - Great Lakes. Had a unique brown color. Had a nice malty flavor, but was just a little too thin. Smokey malt and sweet flavor. Good--Not great.

On tap at brewery: reddish brown in color, with small thin head, and pretty cloudy. Aroma is malty, maybe a bit yeasty. Flavor is malty and pretty sweet, with a bit of caramel. Too sweet overall. Not bad, but nothing especially great.

in a bar pint, sans head, appears whiskey red. bar odors make whiffing difficult, and the beer appears unwilling to help much. a guppy among scotch ales, must be a 60-70 schilling. light sweet maltiness emerges, no distinctive character to speak of. very low hops. obviously brewed for the casual drinker. i suggest adding 4 oz. of spaten optimator to each pint to give it some hair.

dark brown, surprisingly thin body. very smokey/toasty malts, some sweetness, almost enought hops to crisp up the finish. i thought that this would be thicker, but the thin body went much better with the warm weather.
