COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Attention serious beer drinkers: XLCR is here. Go ahead, dive right into our amber colored pale ale. It features a pleasant floral hop aroma and a satisfying malt sweetness. It’s dark enough to pair with steak fresh off the grill, but refreshing enough to cool off on a Minnesota August afternoon.

Pours a clear, dark copper, with almost no head. Some floral notes in the aroma a flavor, but the malt and grain both are much more pronounced. I have to say this was kind of underwhelming.

Clean, fleeting taste. President of Excelsior Brewing talked about their goal of approachable beers. This brew fulfills their philosophy, and could appeal well as an all-purpose ale accessible by all levels of beer fans. Muted and safe, but I think that was the point.

Citrus nose. Pretty balanced brew. Kinda muted in a sense. Ok to put back a couple but nothing crazy.

On tap at the brewery. Pours orange with a little head. Aroma and taste are nice floral and citrus hops. Definitely a tasty brew.

I love this beer. I want my first child to come from the womb directly into a cat of XLCR. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Growler. Pours clear gold color with a soapy head that fades. Aroma of malt and caramel with a subtle pepper spice. Taste has spicy hops and then the malt caramel shows up. Palate is fizzy and dry. Rather safe and boring.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Golden, clear pale ale. A touch of fruitiness to the nose, then a caramelly malt front with a turn to the hop dimensions later, though with continuing malt backbone and some grassy notes that stay shy of vegetal. Decent drinking, but a better nose than flavor. (on tap at Ball Park Cafe, Minnesota State Fair)

Tap at the taproom. Clear light orange pour with a foamy white head. Very nice floral hop profile with a touch of sweet malt. Good drinker.

vikingguy (804) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Drank at the brewery. Gold, slightly hazy. A liberally hopped pale ale. Good body backs it up. Going off memory here but I really liked this one. Of the three offerings this was my favorite.

Draft, at the disastrous Minnesota Food Truck Festival. Gold color. Dry malt and herbal hops in both the aroma and the flavor. More hops in the aroma however, and a dry, herbal finish with malt.
