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.

BeerandBlues2 (12479) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Tap at Salt. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is toast and cookie malt with light caramel notes, earthy and herbal hops with dates. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness, dates and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Dogbrick (12252) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Great Lakes usually provides exemplary models for the beers they create, and the fact that this brew is merely above average is kind of a letdown. Still, it’s pretty good. Deep ruby amber color with a medium beige head and thin lacing. The aroma is roasted malt and caramel. Medium-bodied and on the carbonated side, with flavors of sweet malt, light hops and a bit of fruit. The finish is clean and somewhat sweet. Overall pretty good, but I just know GLBC could knock this one out of the park if they really wanted to.

hopdog (11888) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2007
12oz bottle. Poured a medium to deeper amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, toasted malts, and lightly earthy. Tastes of caramel and toasted malts. Lots of caramel in the flavor.

crossovert (11819) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Old rate. Really a style that doesn’t fit anywhere. This one is maltier but still confusing.

Sammy (11516) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2006
Enormous initial head, looks roasty, light colour. Very fresh draft-lkike taste. A bit of roast and alcohol in aroma, fairly neutral. Mild, creamyish mouthfeel, light body close to watery. Easy drink, bitter with mild roastiness.

shrubber85 (10959) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle. Mild toffee malt aroma. Amber with large light tan head. Sweet toffee malt initially but switches to a buttery ginseng/gentian root bitter finish. Not a fan of this combination of flavors. (Best by 4/24/13).

deyholla (10709) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2013
Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a clear reddish amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a light grassy hop note with a bit biscuit and a good amount of sweet grains. Flavor is quite sweet with biscuit and sweet grains and not much of a hop profile.

adnielsen (10573) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle @ home via trade with barak316. Thanks Bill! Pours a clear, dark rust orange appearance with a cream colored head. Quite nutty, very toasty malty, big toffee, caramel, biscuity aroma. Cracker, toasty malty, light roast, a touch fruity, nutty flavor with a somewhat bitter, floral hoppy finish. Not bad.
