This Ale is the first brewed in Kansas since the pioneering days. The name "Ad Astra" comes from the Kansas State Motto - Ad Astra per Aspera, Latin words meaning "To the Stars Through Difficulties". We’ve blended Pale, Caramel, and Munich malts for a rich amber beer. The hops balance this malty sweetness, and we’ve chosen Northern Brewer and Fuggles hops for their flavor.

Aroma is nutty malts, and a marzen malt quality. Appears brown with red tint and small off white head. Taste is malty with brown sugar, nuts, and some darker fruits like raisin. Crisp yet full bodied. Great session beer.

Pours dark amber with small white head, leaves a little lacing. Aroma was fairly light with roasted malts and a hint of chocolate. The taste followed the aroma and finished with mild bitterness. The carbonation was pretty lively.

Pours a rich cola brown, with a thick creamy white head. The nose is slightly malty. A fairly crisp flavor follows unexpectedly, with lingering berry hint. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reddish amber color with a great initial sweet, malty taste. Bready flavors with a bit of toffee note as well. Wonderful ale for drinking, not too carbonated but a wonderful medium body as well.

A very easy drinking brew. Pours dark amber with little off-white head. Smells like sweet malt but its faint. Taste is also sweet, thin body, not much hops but balanced with the malt. Its a nice beer while mowing my lawn. Nothing crazy but decent. Cheers foppa!
