awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2007
On tap at the brewery, downtown location. Pours a transparent, brassy golden color with a medium layer of fizzy off-white head. Lots of clean, toasted grains with a subtle herbal spicy hop character. A little bit of honey and a borderline jewish rye bread in the nose as well. Light bodied, crisply carbonated mouthfeel. Light and refreshing with a clean, dry palate. Lots of crisp malty grains, almost like chewing on some fresh vienna malt, as well as a noteworthy nuttiness. Gentle hop smack left in a cold lager finish.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2006
Sampled from a growler shared by malachi following DL06: Pours a clear copper bronze with a nicely-lacing off-white head. Fresh, grainy caramel malty aroma has authentic noble hoppy balance. Body starts with a sweet toasted maltiness well balanced with good noble hoppiness. Very authentic and enjoyable.

1FastSTi (3344) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Tap at the downtown location tonight. The beer pours to a transluscent chestnut body with a creamy white head. The flavor is toasty/roasty, floral/herbal/Saaz-ish hops. The aroma is floral/herbal/grassy. Honeysuckle. The palate is quite carbonated with a malty mouthfeel.

DL06: Poured a clear golden amber color with a thin off-white head. Sweet fruity malt aroma with notes of apples and golden raisins. The flavor is fruity and estery. Light bitter finish.

Pailhead (5589) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 30, 2006
Growler: Courtesy of malachi at the Hampton Inn Tasting (Saturday). Grassy aroma with hints of fruit, nuts, and caramel. Pours a bright transparent orange with a small off-white head. Lightly fruity with some hints of toffee and light brown sugar. Finishes with a nutty sweetness and a touch of bitterness.

Brigadier (3230) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2006
Growler from hezron shared at Dark Lord tasting
There was a slightly off wheat scent intermingled with hints of orange peels and fruity hops from this amber bodied bock. The flavor was good but not outstanding - I was able to detect caramel, toffee, hazelnut and pine at various stages. Enjoyable but coming from the Dane I was expecting a little more.

hezron (611) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 19, 2005
UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 Rerate from a growler thanks to malachi. Nice aroma with lots of grassy hops and a strong caramel aroma. Golden amber-orange in color with a thin head. Great crisp caramel flavor that isn’t to sweet and a spicey, grassy finish. Really good this time, I was impressed.


Original rating 6/19/05 (7,3,5,2,9:2.6) Caramel/toffee aroma and noticable green olives, weird. Copper with amber around the edges and a thin white head. Sweet caramel and toffee flavor with some tart vinigar in the finish. Sweet and cloying in the back of the mouth.

heemer77 (5169) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Body is a light copper color with a white head. The aroma is sweet molasses and vanilla. The taste is strong caramel and a little toffee. There is a burn that seems like alcohol. This is sharp on the tongue. The mouthfeel is sticky.

Ughsmash (7354) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Poured a reddish-tan with below-average head retention. Plums, prunes, and pine in the nose. Light fruity taste that was rather sweet. Hops noted in taste, but were rather secondary. Mildly carbonated with an almost tingly mouthfeel. This was a decent beer that I will likely skew toward "good" because I enjoy the style.
