The other really good OB brew - this one has some neat woody flavors to go with the more obvious grains.
clear gold, medium white head, lacy. mild mild nose of malt, grain. flavor is too mild, malty. no hop presence at all. not much here, but not objectionable. RAYBOY01 (2010) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Sweet medium roasted caramel malt, with hints of nuts, and yeast trailed by a touch of lemon slice and herbal hops. Pretty thin texture. Tmoney99 (15233) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2007
Draft sample at brewpub. Poured clear amber color with a medium frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Moderate sweet balanced aroma. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a light sweet finish of short duration. Average drinkable brew. Muckrakerr (33) - Muskegon, Michigan, USA - MAR 29, 2005
A good standard Amber ale. I could drink this every day. Excellent balance between hops and malt. Silphium (3269) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2004
On tap at OB. Cloudy orange-red body, thin yellow-cream head. Light fruity, caramely aroma. Flavor was likewise fruity and caramely with a hint of wet socks and some earthy hops. Pretty standard and a bit thin-bodied.

nice appearance; brownish pumkin red; sour or citrus aroma...thin palate; grapefruit, lemon, and spices for flavor (somewhat like a belgian); decent beer at best hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - JUL 25, 2003
Easily the prettiest OB brew, a lovely clear copper with the only significant lasting lace of the OB bunch. A little on the skin deep side as it's now as substantail as the lighter colored brews or as interesting as the fest, but I'd order it again - it is the least hoppy of these beers and lets you experience the sweet simplicity of a quality malt.
