3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy amber with a huge head of light tan foam. Lots of effervescence. Nose is malty with a whiff of hops. Very creamy on the palate. First flavor is malt with some bread and yeast flavors. Hop taste follows for a medium dry finish. A likeable beer that pairs well with brats or burgers off the grill.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, served at cellar temp in a Duvel glass. Translucent to murky amber-copper, moderate off-white head that decays to a thin stable ring and a fine coating of dust across the surface...yeasty nose unfortunately exhibits signs of DMS; there’s also a honey-vanilla texture to be had but too much of this is unpleasant and vegetal...better on the tongue, moderately to strongly sweet but with the sugar leavened by light yeast and a faint peppery character, with the finish a bit drier and lightly bitter...rather watery body alas, decent carbonation that is not overdone. All in all this fails but it’s not entirely useless.

Tap at Sheffields in Chicago. Copper with small white head. Smells of flat grain. A bit like a Vienna lager. Kinda thin. Not much of a bite or finish. Malty grain. Didn’t love it.

[Tap] Dull amber color with a soapy white head on top. Notes of toffee, sweet breads and molasses in the nose. Flavors are pretty sweet and grainy. More toffee, residual sugars, light yeast notes and bready flavors. Kind of one-dimensional. Tasting notes from Big Blue Craft Beer Festival in Sheboygan on 10/18/14.
