Amber color with a healthy foam. Biscuit and nut aroma. Light body. Malty but without character. deyholla (12031) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 6, 2015
Sampled from the tap at the St. Cloud location. Pours a clear amber brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of bread and a bit of roasted malts with s hint of chocolate. Flavor is mainly dark grains and roasted malts with a hint of chocolate. undsioux7 (876) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2015

Tap sample at Omaha, Neb. location. Pours brown, off white head. Aroma of nuts and caramel. Roasted malt taste. unclemike (3170) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - JUL 31, 2015
Pour mahogany with a light tan head. The aroma has faint toasted malt. Medium smooth body with light carbonation. The flavor has light nutty malt and is very watery ~ common trait for all of their beers. Fair

Blah! Reddish pour, malty aroma, & pretty watery mouthfeel. Not very good by any means - it is kind of drinkable tho. blipp (9590) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Sweet and mildly bready malts, some toast and toffee, and just a hint of earthy hoppy bitterness. Decent. Brigadier (3725) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2015
On tap in Cleveland (OH)

The second beer almost crossed over into satisfying territory. Of the more regular drafts I would probably go for it because at least it provides something beyond a handful of hops, malts, and half hearted flavors. If you were forced to visit a Granite City location with friends consider this your best option (or go for water instead).
Aroma / Appearance - A semitransparent mahogany core glimmers with ivory head holding down the warm aromas. Roasted malts, iced tea, cheap red anise, and generic gas station coffee fuel a blend of aromas that capture the interest for a brief period before they become dull.
Flavor / Palate - Roasted walnuts, nuts, and iced tea rinse the palate clean like a glass full of water. Burnt cookie dough rounds out a finish that hardly inspires the desire to order a full pint. Of the regulars this one provides the best experience but that’s not saying much for a place that feels more about the image than the product.
Now known as The Bennie (Benedict?). It has a nutty flavor, a lot like a Brown Ale. outlawskies (480) - Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Julie likes it smooth mild easy drinking she gives a 3.2.
