A pleasingly warming beer with it’s amber hue showing off it’s rich malt heritage. Mildly bittered with a smooth hop flavor complementing the malt. Winter Skal makes a person welcome the onslaught of the cold. Available November through January.

The caramel malts dominate the aroma to be like, duh, caramel, though there’s just a hint of fruit, maybe cherries? The taste is sweet throughout and there can be a chocolatey finish. Tasted from a bottle.

Bottle. Poured a clear amber with a small head. Plenty of malt on the nose with hints of caramel and sweet peanut brittle (did I say peanut brittle? Now I truly am a geek). Yeast and bread dominate the taste along with malts. This is a nice beer.

Malty Oktoberfesty brew with a few vegetable/pine notes. A nice change of pace, but not the sort of thing I'd be slugging back on the regular.

Tap at brewery. 2004’s Skal pours a beautiful red/amber color with a moderate/thin whitish head. Aroma on the malty/sweet side. Taste is powerful good. Honey and grain. Very balanced, but with alcohol/malt/hops all elevated. Creamy, quaffable but strong. I really like this beer.

On tap for about the 100th time. No hops and a fair amount of malt. Not a session beer, but drinkable.

So this is a Vienna? It tastes like Capital’s Oktoberfest Marzen with a little more roasting of the barley before brewing. Nice amber color with a lacy head, and decent flavor.

Amber with a quickly disappearing white head. Rich malt aroma. Flavor is sweet malt, fruit and caramel. Spicy hop finish provides some very nice balance. Very solid and enjoyable.

Pours amber with white head. Aroma is all malt. Big heavy caramel malt with lots of molasses taste. Little bit of bitterness from the hops, not much. Ok.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 2, 2005
Amber brown with short choppy head and some spotty lacing. Mellow, subdued malty aroma. Flavor is quite rich, with a highly carbonated malt base and an ample supply of balancing hops. Not too much complexity though, maybe some honey and light grain in the background. Finish is rather the same as the flavor itself. Seems like this would be a good beer for a midwinter mild spell.

BeerInHeaven (375) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 21, 2014
pours a slightly murky copper with a medium off white head. Some wispy lacing. definite biscuit with some grass aroma. Really smooth clean taste with some bitterness on the end. A little hop presence on the finish. Nicely balanced drinkable brew.
