Pours an amber with off-white head, little lacing. Aroma of balanced hops and great malt backbone. Flavor matches well and makes for a pretty decent brew.

ginotarugo (70) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2017
Strong malty aroma and flavor, with some aftertaste. I didnt care for it. In fact, I had to force myself to finish it. Not nearly as smooth as the Yuengling equivalent for this style. After trying at least 7 different beers from Great Lakes Brewing I have yet to find one I like. I will keep trying.

Smell is of cereal mostly but some darker malt, taste is the same, more towards the regular malt though....no hops...smooth and malty but not a lot of depth, in Syracuse for 15th high school reunion

Bottle. Pours clear, dark amber. Aroma is caramel and bready malts, light berry notes, light nuttiness, and some lager yeast esters. Flavor matches the aroma with a really nice malt profile that has complexity without being overly sweet and a crisp, dry finish with some subtle hop bitterness. Medium body.
