2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can pours golden-orange with a creamy off-white head. Aroma shows caramel, stale cereal, and slight herbal note. Flavor shows the same. Starts sweet and finishes dry on some very muted hops. Nothing exciting but I would still drink this over plenty of macro-brews.

2.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber with nice white head. Aroma of nail polish remover. Carmel malt-grainy flavor. Paid $8.50 for 12pk @ Woodman’s in Kenosha. Not the worst offering by Minhas by far (i.e. Clear Creek Ice).

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is under rated. Not sure about those of you that said it poured a "clear gold". Mine poured a thick golden copper color with an off-white cream head. Very lovely. Aroma of overly sweet caramel and overly ripe fruit. Abundant presence of hops, light presence of malt. Decent bitter after-taste.
I remember seeing this while on a tour of the Minnesota Brewing Company in Saint Paul about 10 years ago. Not sure how it ended up with Minhas. Anyone know the alcohol content? I paid $7.49 for a 12 pack. Worth every cent!

Can. Bought this one primarily for the can collection. Don’t remember much other than it was drinkable. Nothing special.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
[Can] shared by KAF. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma is corn syrup, malt, and just a little hops. Flavor is slight. Corn syrup, no bitterness, and lots of sweetness with a medium mouthfeel. Short to no finish.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Actually not as bad as I thought it would be. I got a lot of caramel notes in the finish with an overall decent malt character. Still not very good but way better than I thought it would be.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked up a single orange 12-oz can at Warehouse Liquors in Duluth, MN. Pours a clear golden pale amber brew with a thick, creamy off-white head that has some spotty lacing and decent white ring. Aroma of multi-grain malt, some grassy hops, a touch of corn grits, and some fruity character. taste is light to medium bodied, quite smooth, with flavors of multi-grain malt and flowery hops. Finish is semi-sweet with a thin malty grain aftertaste. Actually this is much smoother than most macro-brewed beverages I’ve tried.

if somebody knows where to get this email me firstname.lastname@example.org.... This stuff used to be 7 bucks a 12pk at bevmo... the can is cool the pour is dark the flavor is, well, better than bud. And I miss it. This was an all time favorite of everybody i knew... for the price specifically. I’d love to have one I’m only speaking on memories.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
So now I have to travel to Iowa to find "new" Wisconsin brews. A fine looking can of brew this is. Obtained from Coralville Liquors on a weekend when all the co-eds are back on campus and I find it hard to pay attention to anything but every other pedestrian. That brings me back to this brew. Amber color liquid with a full head of light beige bubbles. This actually looks like a really nice english pale. Slight haze, tall and lasting head... Huh, pale lager, that is what they said they brewed. Reality kicks in with the first big sniff. Old orange juice, stale malt and drying/rotting weeds. Flavor is devoid of many thing, most of all much flavor. Dry, somewhat woody malt, with a touch of dry herbal hops. Still searching for more and not finding anything more to grasp onto. Dry and blah.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
For the price, a surprisingly rich brew typical of most Huber products. REminiscent of the first Augsburger I had in 1977.
