Bottle ala Bob. Copper color with a moderate, but stable beige head. Dry floor malt, caramel and toasted sour dough bread (once again I fear the bottling line from this brewery) aromas. Earthy grain bread, with a bit of tartness. The tartness is not as bad as some bottles; but the feel even after a a significant amount of time is still like sucking on a 9V battery. This one darkened appreciably after the last pour and fish food also appeared. Flavors have not changes so chalk up another bottling. Unless fresh, I will not trust the brews from this brewery.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 30, 2008
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Fox River brewpub in Appleton, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-hazy copper amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a thin white ring and some spotty lacing. Aroma of multi-grain malt with rye, some tobacco, iced tea, some grassy and dry leaf hops and a touch of dry herbs. Taste is medium bodied, a dry texture with flavors of rye, multi-grain malt, some tobacco and dry leafy hops. Finish is semi-dry with a lingering ice tea and tobacco flavor and some mild bitterness. Quite an excellent dry bitter ale. Would have enjoyed trying this cask conditioned at GTMW last month.

Many thanks to Skyview for bringing this in! Slightly murky copper color with no head. Wonderful aroma of tobacco, earth and leather. Tastes strongly of rye. Quite bready, but more of a multi-grain bread than the breadiness I get in Belgian beers. Earthy, like the smell of clay dirt. Dry finish. Outstanding bitter. Far exceeded expectations.
