Pours an expected dark amber with a frothy head that laces. Slight malty caramel notes. Bitter tastes and finishes astringent. Overall great beer!

If you are a beer lover in Wisconsin this is a must try beer. It pours a dark amber color and has a heavy scent of hops. I delivers a heavy taste full of flavor but finishes very smooth.

Bottle into English pint at lake. Pours foggy red with thin beige head. Hoppy nose and initial taste...medium bitterness with full body and average carbonation...tasty

Draft. Loads of grains and grassy hops with a good dose of citrus. Wish this was available around me because I would drink it quite often.

The aroma is nice and not too overbearing for a beer with hops. Itís appearance was not my favorite (cloudy) but overall a good beer. Maybe excellent for the warmer months when paired with a barbeque.

Tasted from a bottle. Poured a beautiful, dark amber color with a subtle aroma that had a hint of caramel. A smooth drink with an enjoyable finish.

Bottle: Clear amber color with an off-white head. Sweet hoppy aroma and alcohol. Hoppy flavors with a trailer of cardboard. Pretty tasty.

Excellent beer. Dark amber pour with a solid head. Frankly, amber ales are not generally my thing, but this is one of the best examples of the style. Verges on IPA, really, but the amber malt backbone really make this a unique brew.

Pours a brownish red, little head, smells sweet and hoppy. Taste is a bit muddled, completely different than I expected from the smell. Hops were faded, to bad bottled on dating technology doesn't exist....

A deliciously balanced brew. Hoppy, but not overly so, lightly bitter, a slight touch of sweetness, and a bit piney. Amazing.
