Clear medium to dark amber, decent head fades to ring but leaves nice lace. Aroma lightly of toasted malts. Fairly clean lager profile, emphasis on toasty malts. A hint of slightly earthy hops too. Nicely done, seems to be Detroit’s version of Richmond’s Legend Brown

On tap at the DTW airport. Pours a clear amber, small beige head with some decent lacing.. Smell is of malt.. Taste is of malts, with a tinge of fruity undertones and some caramel. Great mouthfeel, and the alcohol is well masked for a good session beer.

Hazy amber red with sticky white lacing. Cereal, barley and hop on the nose. Palate is medium bodied with a nice hop presence. Nice balance. Sessionable, but with good character.

Tap at airport. Reddish amber color, shirt lived white head. A sweet aroma with hints of apple and fruit. Taste is unexpected. hoppy, but with a malt body and lots of esthers and fruit. Ends very well balanced with a fruity/bitter kick.
