An amber ale with a thin light moka head. A lightly cloying aroma of buttery malt, vinous notes, light spices, not bad. In mouth, a nice sweet biscuitty malt with smooth hops, juniper, warming alcohol, nicer than expected, nicely aged. 09 vintage on tap at MacGregors, July 31 2010.

Great Lakes never fails to please! While not as appealing as some of their other offerings, this is still a decent beer. Dark orange-red color with a thin beige head. Spiced aroma. Flavor consisting of spices (cinnamon and ginger) with a pinch of hops at the end. Overall not a bad seasonal.
