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.

badgerben (4387) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2009
#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.

Tripplebrew (775) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 22, 2008
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.

WisconsinBeer (704) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2008
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.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 14, 2007
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.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2007
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.

linkolnlogg (94) - your home, Minnesota, USA - OCT 17, 2006
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.

JK (4377) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2006
ABR 2006. A little more complex than the average amber ale. This one is well hopped and on the dry side. Light amber color.

auerbrau (3157) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Earlier Rating: 9/11/2005 Total Score: 3.5 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%
