Just had this last night on draught at Dexter’s Pub: Poured a well carbonated amber colour with small white head. Decent amount of sticky icky lacing circling the top of the glass. Aroma is decently hoppedas well. I love that fresh floral aroma of a West coast style amber. Some subtle biscuit but noticeably hoppy taste with a touch of spice near the finish. Really nice beer. Looking forward to this in sixers hopefully sometime soon." sleestak (226) - Williamston, Michigan, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Draft. Poured reddish amber with a big foamy head. More hops than expected in the aroma, with a nice bready/caramel backdrop Incredibly drinkable with a smooth malt flavor backed-up with decent hoppiness. Perfect carbonation - not nearly as syrupy as a lot of ambers. Very nice example of an underappreciated style. RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Growler. Coppery amber with a thin white head. Tangy hop aroma and taste. Earthy malt backbone with a clean finish. Very smooth and tasty. Ron (4065) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2009
FCBF 09. Was an amber color and a pretty ok head. Flavor was a little malty and some hops were present in the finish.

FCBF 09. Was pleased these folks had a new beer to showcase. A bit of crackers in the nose along with the hoppy aroma, something unusual in there too that I couldn’t identify, but it added to it. The palate was surprisingly hoppy and dry. Decent.

(draft @ 2009 Flour City Brewer’s Fest - Frontier Field - Rochester, NY) Clear orange pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is loaded with dry and floral hops. When I first smelled it, I thought it was an IPA. Flavor is incredibly floral and bitter with some mild citrus. Mainly dry hops. Tastes exactly like an IPA. Finishes dry, bitter, and cloying. phaleslu (10462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Draft. Clear golden/amber pour with almost no head. A lot of malt and hops on the nose and in the flavor. A few minor secondary flavors- floral notes, bread, and some earthiness. Light body and bitter on the palate. Not particularly unique, and feels a little too common compared to most of Great Lakes’ offerings. grebs (72) - Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2009
On tap at Winking Lizard. Malty and hoppy and brown. Good, not special. I’m usually looking for something more curious from my seasonals. cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - AUG 9, 2009
Lightly hoppy with a medium bodied maltiness. Pours a fair amber color with a half inch thick off white head and good lacing. Some citrus and faint pine hop aroma coupled by mild sweet malts. Middle of the road ale. hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - AUG 6, 2009
tap at coles- i was not thrilled with this great lakes offering- strong malt flavors dominate, along with some faded, oxidized hop flavor way in the background- unpleasant bitterness. i was looking forward to switching to something else after my first sip.
