Made a decent appearance, poured a clear copper with a foamy white head that settled into a thin foamy lacing, good carbonation.
Had a malty nose of sweet barley and wheat, a faint coffee, also fruity with grassy hoppiness.
A crisp, slightly slick and smooth light bodied mouthfeel, good drinkability.
Nice malty taste, sweet and a bit sugary, barley, a soft caramel infused coffee, fruity with a grassy hop briskness towards the end and a dry hoppy and malty finish.
Another nice brew from Michigan Brewing, tasty and balanced.

Good looking beer, pouring the color of a shiny new penny with a two-fingered, off-white head. The aroma is a sweet malt, almost worty, with a touch of herbal bitterness. These balance out nicely in the flavor, creating a tasty, sessionable lager.BigBeer45 (1562) - Michigan, USA - MAR 15, 2007

Bottle, poured a amber gold, sweet malt and some caramel fragrances, faint hop bouquet
aroma, taste of malt and dark malt, little sweetness with a small hop bite on the palate, there is a lager taste to this beer, it is faint though, very easy drinking stuff.

a true-to-description amber color of moderate carbonation and head. aroma of caramel and toast, along with a slightly industrial ’lager yeast’ element. smoother and sweeter than the aroma suggests - surprisingly so! lingering sweetness of honey and brown sugar and the hops are noticeable only when you realize that without them, this would be like drinking brown kool-aid. better than i expected, and better than some of their other brews.

Pours amber with a thick fluffy head that last a few minutes. Strong malt aroma. Sweet from beginning to end. With light hop finish.

clear, amber color, short-lived head.
sweet nose, caramel-y, deep and fruity, slightly spicy.
Taste: nice, hoppy a bit, fruity, ...but, a bit too mild on the palate. Dies off too quickly. Lays easily on the mouth a bit, but doesn’t make much of an impact.
An adequate, run of the mill amber ale, easy drinking, but nothing much.
Not a beer that I’d ever turn away, but nothing to knock your granny over to get, either.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with Pailhead, thanks Kevin!) Not a whole lot of carbonation release when I popped the cap, and the pour has only yielded a quarter-inch tall, light-tan head atop the hazy, ruddy amber body. But fortunately, this beer has a well-carbonated mouthfeel, so I guess we’re fine. As expected, the flavor is fairly sweet and caramely, but there’s a nice toasty and earthy maltiness that adds a modest drying influence to the flavor, and the beer finishes with a touch of bitterness for some balance. But the sweet, caramely maltiness is strong and dominant from start to finish. Medium bodied and a bit sticky sweet on the palate well into the long-lasting finish. The nose is less dominated by sweet caramel, and is more malty and a bit dryer than the flavor. The head eventually fades to a small ring, and lacing is, uhm, non-existent. I like this beer quite a bit, especially the dry toastiness, but it’s still just a bit too sweet. Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Good amber color,small off white head that had a short hang time then faded to leave a little behind.The aroma was malty with some caramel and light fruit.The flavor came off as much the same as the aroma with a bit of a hop bite in the end.it actually was not that bad....kind of pleasant in a way and well worth having a few more around. wmubronco1992 (709) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber. Small white head. Mild aroma of toast and caramel. Flavor is caramel. A bit of roast in the mouthfeel. Relatively mild palate. This is a nice light amber and at 4.5% very drinkable. Probably something you use a stepping stone to bigger beer. Overall decent, but not memorable, even for an amber. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JAN 20, 2011
Bottle. Amber, clear, frothy white head. Medium to mild carbonation.Light malty aroma. Mild taste, very drinkable... but nothing outstanding. Would complement food well.
