Murky amber, with a small creamy white head. Sticky sweet malt with some bitter honey and some damp hops. Light sour lemons and sweet raisins mix for a nicely balanced and refreshing brew. Palate is nicely creamy and the malt sticks to the tongue. Great Northern has done something good here - thanks to slikwily for the nice surprise.

Light amber color,small white head that faded quite quickly.malty sweet aroma with a mild hopping,maybe a mild fruit presence.Malty taste with a nice hopping sweet in the beginning with a slight sour to it in the middle.There is also another flavor there that is hard to describe,it's fruit of some sort but just beyond description for me.I'm thinking it's almost like green grapes.The after taste is sweet with a decent hop taste in it.the feel is mild.Not a bad brew at all,pretty decent and a definate keeper i think.

Big caramelly lager; slightly slippery body, some corniness in the aroma. Some sweet brown sugar, malt is indeed sticky. Not the hoppiest Vienna around; much more European without hybrid intent, I think. Super drinkable, perfect with Pizza! Thanks SW. Skyview (6031) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at the Great Northern Brewpub in Whitefish, Montana. Pours a dark caramel amber brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissolves to a fine film and white ring. Aroma of roasted dark caramel malt, roasted nuts, a touch of toffee and soem flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, very light carbonation with flavors of dark hard fruits, sweet barley malt and some candy cherries. Finish is smooth, slightly sweet with a candy sugar aftertaste.

Pretty amber colour. Wonderful malty aroma with plenty of toffee, a little hops, and maybe even some fruits? Flavour has an interesting combination of sweet malts and acidic hops (Cascade). IMHO not perfectly balanced. The carbonation is fairly low. Overall, a decent beer (with a great aroma) but nothing more.

Draft pint to finish off oru tasting at the GN taproom. Dark amber, almost light brown. Lightly carameled aroma. Nice fully flavored brew, almost tea-like, moderately bittered. Robust for an "amber", bordering on a brown ale. Good, though. (#2866, 5/12/2007) Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Sampled at the brewery. Clear amber, frothy beige head. Aroma of caramel malts and fruit. Taste is mildly sweet with very faint citrus. Medium light body, smooth carbonation. oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2005
Pours a medium amber color. Aromas of caramel, a hint of nut, and some light fruit. Flavor is a sweet roasted taste, I think it could use some more hops. Finishes a bit sweet. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle:   Deep amber, moderate foamy sandy head, spotty lacing.   Pale caramel malt aroma, slightly mealy but not too much.   As it warms it appears to be a little toasted.   Smooth sweet and rich malty start,
could be a little much if had in quantity, but its nice.   Very minor nuttiness and biscuit in the finish.   Not a hoppy Amber, and does seem like a Lager despite it being listed as an Amber Ale.   Better than I was expecting
at least.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes fairly quick, which is better than the start which seems to be a little sticky.   Not bad! DuffMan (10425) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2008
Clear amber, average off-white head, no lace. Aroma of caramel, and low earthy hops. Same on the palate, a little thin. Decent enough, but there are better beers coming out of Montana.
