Can (gift from Lopez, who was in Wisconsin recently.... thanks brutha!) Pours a nice, medium amber, frothy white head with very nice retention and lacing. Nose is cakey malts, some citrus, hint of Ritz crackers. Mouth is medium bodied, caramelly malt, white pepper, crackers, mild bitterness, not bad flavor profile but a bit muddy and/or muted.This would pair well with a bag o’ cheese curds.

Pours an Amber colour. Aromas and flavours are a bit of caramel. Some citrus notes. But everything is faint and watery.

Can. Poured a clear medium orange color. The head was thick and white with good retention and lacing. Nice caramel, graham, light butter, and floral hop smells. Light to medium bodied and slightly sweet without any significant bitterness. Caramel, graham, and floral hop flavors with a hint of pine. Nice.

Tap at Angry Minnow on Nov. 18, 2011. Light copper pour with a clingy white head. Lemon and citrus on the nose. Medium palate. Taste is citrus hops and slight breadiness. Very good.

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2010
clear copper color, small off white head, a touch lacy. airy nose of malt and perhaps a touch of pine. flavor was very mild, perhaps some malt, maybe some hops. i took a couple sips and didn’t see anything here, then i tasted a strange metallic taste that did not fade. perhaps an infected bottle, but this sample was pretty poor. a flossmoor station mugclubber provided the sample at a recent tapping.

Bottled. Poured crystal-clear medium amber with a well-retained cap of off-white head. The aroma was on the sweet side with caramel and redder fruits accented by floral and citrus character.. maltage became candied as it warmed. The flavor found sweet caramel at the core with fruits in the form of bitterness around.. some spicy pine and a touch of citrus too.. aiight. Light-medium bodied with decent flow across the palate.. a tad grainy.. spicy, refreshing finish.
