2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft, at the brewery taproom. MBC brewed this special edition re-creation of the Sebewaing brand (1880-1965) for Sebewaing Township's 150th anniversary. Bartender told me this was an ale, but perhaps more of a lager-like "cream ale" like Genesee, which probably was the style in those days. Taste is crisp and light like a lager, but without lager yeast bite. This was available in "historic label" cans, especially their flagship pheasant label at Sebewaing stores this past summer, so I'm surprised no one has found it and rated it here. I also found Sebewaing has its own "Old Style." Wonder what the story was with that one.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Yellow color that holds a thin sheen as a head. Aroma is sweet malted grain with just a hint of corn. Taste is malt juice and although not sickeningly sweet, too sweet for my palate. The thickness almost immediately washes away the carbonation that’s trying to sneak through. The flavors here aren’t very good though.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from the brewpub- Sparkling gold body with a fizzy white head. Grainy hops nose with some corn and wet barnyard. Slightly sweet grassy flavours with some bittering from hops. Mild bready aftertaste is mixed in with mild lingering hops bitterness. Pretty standard lager IMO, and certainly not a cream ale. At least not by my standards. Ok.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Drank this while in high school. Green color. Tasted like bad urine smells. Very worst beer I have ever drank in my life. Brings back memories of living in Michigan.
