2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2014 Aroma is strong, but reminds me of the amateur homebrewer - dank, earthy basement smells, not appealing. Taste was better, but average at best.
Tried again in glass and let it breathe for a minute at a better temperature. Much better. I get the fruit notes in the beer much better.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark copper with a thin white head; lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is toasted malts and hop with a hint if grassiness. Taste is a bright pop of moderately bitter hops with a floral finish. Full bodied, lively carbonation.
Nice brew! Way to go Motown!

At an airport lounge in Detroit; I wanted to go local. Flavourful, sweet malts, nicely balanced. Just what I want for an airport layover.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Reddish brown colour, cream head. Fruity aroma, malts, caramel, iron, apple and apricot. Quite sweet malty flavour, fruity, apricot. Slightly thin texture, caramel, fruits. Quite rounded.
Nice, too bad of the iron in the nose.
