This is a clean, crisp, delicately balanced beer with subdued sweetness and a pleasantly refreshing tang in the finish. Because of the low hop bitterness and dry, light body, this beer is easily mistaken for a lager or light beer. These qualities make it a great summertime beverage. This beer is brewed using our local pure water without any additives. This beer was our very first recipe. It was our introduction into craft beer. We brewed what we wanted to drink, and this quickly became a favorite among our friends and family who weren’t ready for the more brutal styles on the Bent Brewstillery beer menu. We make this beer our own by using richer Munich malts to give it a more complex and deeper flavor. This beer is best when fresh.

Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a clear golden amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has musty grains and bread notes with a touch of straw underlying. Flavor is full of straw with bread and grains notes.

Bottle. Gold pour with a small head. Syrupy density and corn. Not bad, but not good either. Meh.

Can. Pours a mostly clear gold body under a small fizzy white head. The nose is lightly sweet with a bit of citrusy hops and a slight huskiness. The flavor isn’t the most exciting, but its clearly well made and a pretty strong effort for an Amber Ale. It has a fairly sturdy body for the style with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty good stuff.

Skyview (5360) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Sampled on draught at ABR 2013 and via 22-oz bomber at Dennis Brothers tasting. Pours a clear, golden pale colored brew with a fast dissipating off-white head that leaves behind a thin white ring and minimal lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, some light spicy and grassy hops, and a touch of caramel. Taste is light to medium bodied, some extra carbonation with flavors of golden and caramel malt, a touch of white pepper and some grassy hops. Finish is semi-dry, a short-lived spicy hop aftertaste followed by some light caramel finish. A hybrid amber/golden blond ale best describes this new beer.

I had this after the Ghostface, and it was either because of that or because of the cold weather that I could barely taste anything. Pah. Thin drivel. Nothing going on. (on tap at Winter Beer Dabbler, January 2014).

Bottle thanks to CLevar. Pours a fairly clear. Smell is harsh graininess. Slightly funky. Taste is slightly funky as well. No bueno. Obviously the two guys who rated this before me are dee runk.

This would be a good go-to session beer. Light but with a good crisp and hoppy flavour. More hops than a typical amber or blonde. Nice little beer.

A very nice blonde ale. Crisp with some nice malt sweetness and a great hoppy finish to keep it balanced. Nice.

Draft at Grumpy’s in Roseville. Looks ok. Yucky. Odd finish. Some off flavor that I can’t really put my finger on.
