3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. (Lakefront Brewery) Milwaukee, WI.
Clear copper colour with a small off-white head.
Mild sweet toffee, malt and banana in the aroma.
The flavour is quite easy but there’s nothing wrong with it. Dryish malt, banana sweetness and mild hoppy bitterness. I don’t know what the banana is doing here. Drinkable, forgettable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Orangish amber, moderate off-white head, foamy, spotty lacing. very light carbonation. Bready caramel aroma, light citrus oddly enough. Moderate malty character, slightly bready, otherwise fairly grainy. Moderate body and mouthfeel. Grainy finish, malty, but not as smooth as others. Still leaves me wanting some Eliot Ness. Thanks JCapriotti for the freebie!
