3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small pour on tap at Brickhouse BBQ (Madison, WI). Pours a richer amber pour, moving into copper with touches of haze. Frothy offwhite head, near transparent, healthy rich glow with a bit of lingering ringed head. Aromas are carmelized, toffee, and toast. Some biscuits, gentle spice, dry earthy hops. Initial is medium bodied, a bit sticky, toffee, and toast. Biscuits, toast, some mellow kisses of darker fruit influence. Some toast, biscuits, carmelization but a bit on the sweeter side. Middle is a bit more dry and toasty, with gentle dry hops, with some dark fruit. Backend is a bit toasty, dry with some of that underlying sweetness. Lesser body gives some drinkability, good balance. Solid, could use a touch of dryness. But pretty solid. A touch sweet at times. Simple, enjoyed.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber with off white head. Lite lacing. Caramel, mild nutty notes, and mild lemon hops aroma. Full bodied, flavor like aroma, malt dominated with hop lemon flavor notes. Decent balance, tongue tingler and lite bitter finish.

surprised that all their web site has is a generic blurb: Our Brewmasters make -- and drink -- these limited beers based on the moods of the changing Wisconsin seasons. Look for a variety of flavors to match your favorite Wisconsin season and ENJOY!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - Pours light rosy amber with a thin off-white head. Lightly soured malt on the nose, caramel corn, overripe melon, a touch of milk. Huh. Didn’t expect it to smell like that at all. The taste is a bit better, but pretty nondescript. Has the same milky, soured malt note with light herbal hops that enter in the finish. Malt lingers through the long finish, with some lightly spicy hops rearing their head. Wow...what’s up with this beer? Not like any O-fest I’ve had and definitely not my thing.

Pour out of bottle was slightly hazy orange with white head. Aroma had notes of toffee, some spice, caramel, biscuit, emphasizing the sweet notes in there with just a hint of grassy bitterness. Taste was a bit of the same, with lots of biscuity, bready malts with a touch of caramel, some bitter grass, finishing fairly sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Old Fashioned. Hazy orange-tan, minimal non-head. Light, easy doughy malt aroma. Medium bodied, pretty crisp. Mild amber malt, light buttery caramel, soapy hops. OK, could use a little more malt depth.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz brown bottle. Im not sure on the dare.
It is either an old bottle or a fairly unfiltered lager as it pours a decent brownish orange with a bunch of floaties. The head is foamy and white.
There is a decent amount of herbal hoppiness in the smell a keen candy/caramel smell, and some toastiness.
The flavor has some oxidized fruit and caramel, it is basic, perhaps a bit on the sweet side.
Not the best ofest, but I think it is an old bottle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is a clear orange color with a medium thin eggshell white head that dissipates quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt and mild hops. Light and sweet character that is malty with notes of caramel and floral hops. The finish is toasted malt and caramel with a lingering sweetness left behind. Decent overall.
