Part of a sampler with lunch on the way to haul our sailboat. Nice, sharp, bitter brew with a lot of grass and young grapefruit. Very dry, with a goodly hint of seaweed. Quite enjoyable.

#11. A very dark amber, nearly brown color with a thin head. Very floral aroma, kind of like Noble hops, but honestly more just like a stroll in a garden with a hint of green tea. Light malt flavor, burried under a ton of hoppy acidic bitterness. A bit of a floral taste. Interesting and unexpected.

Pours an amber brown with medium cream-colored head. Aroma is hops and caramel. Flavor is definite notes of hops with a mild caramel undertone. (I didn’t tell WisconsinBeer this was an IPA...merely that it had definite hops). The hops are citrusy. Interesting Amber.

Growler. Brownish red color, medium head. Decent amount of lacing. Flavor is mild caramel malt with an assertive hop finish. GF picked up a growler of this, she told me it was and IPA, I believed her. That’s how much hop presence this "amber ale" has. Medium bodied, mild carbonation. Sweet lingering finish. Solid for the style.

Sampled on draught as Daisy Ale #9 at the Fitger’s Brewhouse in Duluth, MN. Pours a clear reddish/copper amber brew with a creamy light tan head that has good retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, some roasted nuts, green tea, and some floral/citrus hops. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with a good balance of caramel malt with some flowery hop character. Finish is slightly dry, a little metalic with a lingering mild bitter aftertaste.

This is Daisy VI. Pours a nice clear ruby amber color. Beautiful. A two inch thick layer of the softest foam I have ever experienced, almost a tan color. Nice lacing throughout the pint. Initial aroma of hops (when I opened the growler), subsequent aroma mildly malty.
This starts out as a malty beer, with caramel, a mild toasted malt, and some burnt toffee. Then the citrus/pine hop bitterness kicks in for a nice balance and great flavor. A little citrus, a little pine, and a lot of bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium body and very tasty.

On Tap in Shaker. Light brown-amber colour with a sizable creamy white head with good lacing. Scent is subdued; smooth and inviting with strong tea elements. Taste was creamy and light/smooth bodied with strong tea elements intermixed with a nice balance of mild grain and hops. Interesting earthy flavour on the palate as it goes down.

ABR 2006. A little more complex than the average amber ale. This one is well hopped and on the dry side. Light amber color.

Served on Cask. Ruby orange brown, burnt-sienna pour, with a finger of superfine ivory head. Dried apricot and craisins aroma, backed with a quick dose of Cascade hops. Crystalline. Flavor is a mellow fruit, again kicked with hops on the back. Tangy, with a touch of floral and a dose of grapefruit and lime cologne. Good warm bitter nose. Finish hop dry and yet savory smooth. Solid, with no faults and a nice level of intricacy. Clinging hops sugars and sunflower seeds on the finish.
Earlier Rating: 10/23/2005 Total Score: 3.1
Slightly murky orange fringed brown, with a thick bubbly tan holding cream head. Light chlorine aroma, a tinge of lime and some rum. A very light and thin beer, but well balanced on the low end of the spectrum. Sharp floral, yet fleeting hops and a sultry smooth brown sugar malt. Less distinguish that straight Daisy or Double. A much reduced hop profile. Watery for the style and 6.5%
