Bitter hop lightly acidic flavor with a medium caramel malt body and a hoppy rind, floral aftertaste. Medium bodied and fizzy, dry palate.

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.
