3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted 8/20/10. 12oz Can. Hazy with a dark amber hue. Layer of off-white head. Aromas of cereal grains and caramel with a subtle, sweet fruity ester. Nice nose! Medium bodied and full of sweet malts. Bready and mild caramel. Dry finish with a slight hop bitterness. The finish is mild with a mix of both bitter and sweet. Not too bad at all!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Poured clear rusty amber with a light brown head that slowly dissipated to the edges. Aroma was grain, cereal and hay with a slight pine hop backbone. Flavor was similar, the grain was bit sweeter, but the same pine hop backbone was still present and grew toward the finish.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap at the brewpub. It looked pretty, smelled OK, but then it was a very sour beer--seemed as if the tap lines needed some cleaning. Very disappointing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz can. Describing your beer as Oktoberfest-style ale is just a bad call, in my opinion. Hazy brown-red color. Beige head. An OK amber or red, nothing extraordinary. Very malt centered, not much hop character. Fruity tones from the amber malt. Inoffensive session beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can purchase at Eastman Party Store in Midland MI. Pours a copper amber with a dissipating rocky light beige head. Very faint aroma of sweet bready German malts. Light bodied approaching medium with average carbonation. Flavor of munich malts, dough, and a hint of noble hops. Basically, this tastes like an average Marzen that has been watered down.

12 ounce can from a friend. Pours a very slightly hazy copper color with a large creamy, frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel with faint, herbal hops. Taste is caramel, berries and a bitter hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Looks good, but fairly bland.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is an amber without much of a backbone. Very little flavor although it looks pretty good. Mouthfeel is nothing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Better than other Keweenaw offerings. Lovely cloudy reddish/amber hued pour with creamy beige head. Grapefruit and bread aroma. Roasted caramel on the palate. What subtracts from this is the watery finish and lack of hops.
