Tap. Copper pour with a small ring of head. Faint aroma of cherries, nuts, caramel, and toast. Tastes watery and boring. Very light caramel and cherry. Thin body. Eh. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - SEP 10, 2014
9/10/2014. On tab in Troy MI. Labeled as The Bennie. Dark amber with a tan head. Sweet malty aromas with caramel and dark fruit. Fruity flavors, honey, malt and a sweet finish. geeklimit (292) - USA - AUG 2, 2014
Pours a dark cola with light carbonation and head. Strong malt aroma. Caramel flavor with light coffee and dark chocolate notes. Relatively clean mouthfeel with light caramel and chocolate aftertaste. edgallow (4218) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2014

Surprisingly good for a Granite City brew! Very forward caramel, nutty, toasty flavor that is very enjoyable. Thinnish body but very flavorful and tasty brew indeed. Refreshing. Nice darkish brown color too.

On tap poured into a 24 oz glass stein. The aroma is a very mild somewhere in between toasty and burnt caramel malt. The hazy red-brown (caramel?) colored beer is topped with a very light white head which retains a medium-thin ring and leaves a fairly clear glass. The taste is overall mellow with a medium sweetness and a medium light bitter. There’s an above average, soft carbonation to the medium malty body with a light / creamy thin texture. A roasted caramel and grain come through at the finish with a touch of nuts and a bit of chocolate. It’s a pretty clean finish with a slight caramel aftertaste.

On tap @ the Granite City Food & Beer in the Indianapolis airport, concourse A. Medium old-penny brown, miniscule head. Bready malts, more nutty than chocolatey, oddly. If I were guessing, I’d peg this as a brown ale. gopherfan99 (1959) - Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2014
Draft, reddish brown with a white head, sweet taste with caramel, malt and a hint of fruit, dry finish, was hoping for better but this is an average beer, EyeAmBaldman (461) - Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2014

Light nearly clear brown. Real light body. Nothing memorable about this. Refreshing.
