The key to appreciating a true strong bitter: A balance that you’ll savor. Our pronounced hop usage has been compensated with smooth malt perfectly. Presenting our inaugural brew, with hints of its English roots and a whole lotta Minnesota depth to explore.

arminjewell (9207) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Pour on tap at APN 2013, orange-red pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of spice, herbal notes, hints of caramel, toffee, some biscuit and bread notes, slight touch of grass and orange in there as well. Taste is a mix of some biscuit, bread, slight spice, grass, into some caramel, toffee, hints of slight citrus, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Not bad.

Cloudy rust color with quick diminishing head. English malts on the nose. Taste- English malts, crackers, spicy hops. Medium body, med bitterness, solid maltiness. A solid bitter and one I'd buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

asedzie (783) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark amber with medium head. Aroma has mildly fruity hops, behind sweet malty aroma some very slight peaty notes., Flavor is really well balanced for an American ESB - initial caramel toastiness followed by a memorable combination of herbal and resinous hops. This is a really well thought out beer with just enough bitter dryness to cleanse the palate and just enough residual malt sugar and earthiness to keep one craving more. A very well done ESB.

Ericular (930) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Unique, big in the middle. Earthy, lightly toasted malts with a laid back hop bill and dry in the aftertaste.

ElGaucho (2371) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle. Poured a huge head that almost overflowed my tasting glass. Murky lovely orange with a huge, foamy off white head. Somewhat caramels aroma; with some hops at 2nd or 3rd whiff. Flavor has some saison qualities, which I don’t think are intentional. Pretty decent. A little hot initially. Thinking there may be some skunking going on. Improves as it warms and breathes. Very carbonated mouthfeel.
