COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A blend of our Red Ale and our Tigers Eye English ale. Available in draft only, is a collaboration of the head brewer and his wife in celebration of their marriage. The beer has a light, malty body with the earthy esthers of a Irish Style Red, but has the citrusy bitterness commonly found in American Style Pale Ale

On tap.
Pours a clear bright amber with a good dose of head that settles fairly quickly. Nice bits of Brussels lace about the insides of the glass. Aroma gives up a crisp hop bitterness and slight hints of tart fruit and red licorice. Flavor shows all these things but with the fruit tartness a bit more muted than in the aroma; plus a nice lightly toasty dry grain shows up as well. Clean, medium palate with a dry finish. An experimental beer, and the experiment works well.

Skyview (5208) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 14, 2008
On draught at the brewpub in Marshfield, Wisconsin. Pours a clear coppery amber brew with a creamy, slow dissolving, off-white head that has good retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, a touch of roasted nuts and some dry citrus zest. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with a caramel malt and tart berry flavor. Finish has a good balance of tart fruit and malt aftertaste with a slight bitter that lingers on after the finish. There is more hop character in the new version.
