Poured I to english pint glass a deep Amber with small off white head that disapated to nothing quickly. No lace. Aroma and taste were of malt with a slight vanilla and honey note. I was expecting a little more.

Nutty aromas, some toast, subtle pine, some caramel. Clear amber, mostly lasting off-white head. Subtle sweetness upfront, light hops, pretty well balanced. Light-medium bodied.

Tobacco and tea nose, subtle dark honey notes. Clear copper, medium yellow head. Honey and tea flavor, cereal grains. Celery and tobacco finish. Unusual and not terribly true to style, but quite good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber beer with a medium foamy light tan head. Rather mild nose of caramel, bread, and soap. Flavor has a toffee-like sweetness up front with some vanilla and pear flavors underneath. This is finished with a slight bitterness that ends kind of watery and disappointing. Some good flavors are there, but they are ultimately under-developed.

Nice Carmel color--head a bit small. Enjoy the taste--reminds me of an Oktoberfest. Malty and nutty with a slight dark fruit taste. Good overall

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is bready malt and caramel, similar flavor with a light fruit flavor. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light carmel color with little to no head. Lightly roasted malt flavor balanced well with light citrus hops. If it wasn’t for the slightly high alcohol content this would be a good session beer.

I like a decent amount of Great Lake’s beer (need to get around to rating more). This one has me a bit disappointed. Pours a very light copper with no real head. It has a creamy mouthfeel up front, but ends a bit watery. Smells like a beer (no real distinct smell, so just normal malt. Light toasted malt, maybe slight floral and fruit. Nothing that is the main focus. Very light tasting beer. I seem to prefer more stronger flavored beers (regardless of the type) so this one just not stack up for me due to the very light flavor.
Rerated only due to a mistake on initial rating.
