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 the way you want your APA. Smells great, with a smooth hop grassy oral experience. Balanced sweetness and bitterness deliver a well rounded effort here.

12 oz bottle pours amber with a white head. Aroma of malts, citrus and floral. Taste is caramel and citrus.

Easy drinking pale ale with slight hop bitterness. Gets a little grainy as it warms. I can see this as a decent bar beer with some food. Drink um cold.

Copper color with a small head. Very light piney hop aroma. Strong grainy flavor. Rough bitterness. Fairly full bodied. Some heavier Noble vegetal hop flavor as it warms.

bookman10 (701) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2014
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.
