A fantastic ale. World Champion in 1994 for good reason. Blows away Sierra Nevada. Too bad its not pastuerized - you have to be in Ohio to get it.
Too bitter for me.
Sorry, I had to upload these old ratings. They were for me, not for uploading. And also I need 75 characters, hence this sentence.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Clear copper color and a thick white head. Aroma is a little pine, a little malt, and a hint of citrus. Initial taste is pine, floral, rye?, and caramel malt to balance things out. Aftertaste is a light pine bitterness. A creamy medium body with just enough carbonation. A great pale ale that doesn’t go too far. Well-balanced and drinkable. jksipa (1007) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2017
On tap at Great Lakes CLE. Clear medium copper with a small short lived white head leaving patchy lace. Light caramel with some pine and citrus but nothing standing out. Flavour has the light sweet malt base with a medium bitterness. Mouth is medium- and slick with average carbonation and a fading bitter finish. Didn’t quite live up to expectations.

Very pleasant, drinkable pale ale. Smooth enough to go down easy but had just the right amount of flavor and bite. markas101 (2487) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2017

(12oz bottle) AROMA: hint of sweet corn, malt, yeast/dough, caramel/molasses, APPEARANCE: medium Amber, clear, slightly off-white head (hint orangey color) TASTE: toasted malt, some chocolate, bran, bread crust, some herbaceous, moderate hoppiness and bitterness, smokey dry finish. PALATE: medium body, good balance, fresh/crisp, smooth/watery, lingers on tongue/cheeks. OVERALL: solid ale with nice balance between roasted malt and bitter/tasty hops, enjoyable, not too heavy but robust enough to take your time drinking.

Bottle. Clear copper color with a caramel malt aroma. It has a nice clean mouth feel and is light bodied with just a hint of sweetness. Very drinkable. . Ronritter (874) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2016
12oz bottle pours amber with small white head a bit of lacing, and a fair amount of sediment smells of citrus and malt, with the taste following the lead. MeadProfessor13 (1) - - DEC 14, 2016 does not count
