COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A solid, malt emphasized lager, the firey hued richness perfectly balanced by clean hop bittering.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2003 Upon first sip, gives off an ordinary-ish vienna vibe. The malts start out sweet and spry, but end up with a fiery taste of dragonfruit and a little blood (ferric). Aroma is tarnished darker malts, and a hint of your best tie getting caught in your Eureka upright vacuum cleaner, conservative yet smoking and organic. Perhaps a little bitter for style, but I won't complain. Very, very sharp on the palte. Save for the hint of iron, this is a nice, quaffable lager.

Overly malty, with a funny grainy mouthfeel. Mine was repackaged as a "Willam Brennan's".

Color of an average amber, orangey glow with a nice light frothy head that fizzles to lay around the top. Good smell of malt with a spice lightness of fresh hops. Tastes pretty good, sure had me fooled, I was expecting a watery version but it was pretty solid. Well balanced hop and malt flavors that settle into a teriffic solid pine finish with out being to strong or bitter. Good body, had nice little tingle in the mouth. The malt was pleasing. Very drinkable solid offering.

Dissapointing. Sweet and malty, good carbonation. Not enough hops. Poured nice dark golden color with good head which soon evaporated, but had nice lacing. I wouldn't turn it down if offered, but I won't seek it out again.

This was pretty tasty when I had it at a BBQ outside on a hot day looking up the street to the Capital building in Madison this past weekend. Sweet malty aroma. Carmel character in the flavor. Fairly tasty.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2003
Candied malt and caramel aroma, hazy amber/peach colour, with a medium custard head. Hoppy, citrus taste, as well as malt. Well balanced, nice example.

Nice tall foamy tan head.Light amber color.Malty sweet aroma very hoppy.nice malt taste the hops really shine through on this one.Some what spicy,very nice hop after taste that seems to last for a long time.No wonder people are tripping over each other to get beer from this brewery they make a damn fine brew that is highly drinkable.

aroma is faint, nearly non-existant. Flavor and palate are thin and watery. Nothing special.

Amber color with decent head at first. Malty, slightly hoppy aroma. Some smokiness in the body, dry finish. A decent beer, easy to drink.

Nuffield (3858) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 26, 2003
Decent appearance, not for the body but the fluffy off-white head. Muted aroma, though perhaps I served this too cold. Smooth, slightly creamy body, but a lingering metallic flavor overwhelms whatever enjoyment of the malt character I get from this. Very drinkable, but not rocking my world--then again, having been born and raised in Minnesota, nothing related to Wisconsin has every rocked my world!
