This is a good one, unfortunately it isn't bottled and is hard to find on tap. So if you see it give it a try, you may not get another chance!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Great Lakes in July 2009 as part of Christmas in July. Sampled side-by-side with the Christmas Ale. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate amber color with a bit of a stronger reddish character when light hits the glass. A bit of a light head that dies down a bit too quickly. The nose brings some citrus and pine hops as well as some very lightly-toasted malt with a bit of bread and biscuit. The taste is mostly bready with a small spattering of hops. Good body and slight bitterness; a bit plain, but drinkability is nice.
Serving type: on-tap

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Just had this last night on draught at Dexter’s Pub: Poured a well carbonated amber colour with small white head. Decent amount of sticky icky lacing circling the top of the glass. Aroma is decently hoppedas well. I love that fresh floral aroma of a West coast style amber. Some subtle biscuit but noticeably hoppy taste with a touch of spice near the finish. Really nice beer. Looking forward to this in sixers hopefully sometime soon."
