jmcgavin12 (473) - Madison, USA - FEB 23, 2014
A clear amber pour with one finger of lacing white head. Aroma is very fruity with floral hop notes as well. The taste is a very well balanced blend of malt/caramel sweetness with a slight hoppy finish. A medium body and a great beer to end a week on.

tmoreau (2315) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Accompanied lunch on the day before GT ticket sales. On tap at the downtown Madison brewpub on Doty, and served to an imp. pint glass with a clear, amber hue, a modest amount of light tan, bubbles & cream head foam, and waves & spots of clingy lacing. The nose was light grain, a little sweetness, a touch of spice, and light hints of caramel and vanilla. A little better than softly carbonated, and medium bodied, the flavor also presented a low hop bitterness, light sweetness, and a subtle, finishing bitterness & dryness. Food complementary, quaffable, and fairly clean.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Courtesy of malachi. Bright orangish color. Huge nutty/caramel combo up front. Fades to biscuity/grainy character, hints of fruit. Flavor much the same, caramel and faint fruit character. Creamy smooth mouthfeel. No hop character whatsoever. If not for color would pass for a regular bock.

MIBRomeo (2541) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Blah overly sweet both in aroma and tAste but worse yet a very fake sugar sweetness that comes off like those crappy pink packets. Avg pal nice appearance downhill from there. I won’t drink it again

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Served on draught at the Wisconsin Micro-brewers Beerfest in Chilton, Wisconsin. Pours a clear dark golden colored brew with an average off-white head that has a slow dissolve to a fine film and white ring. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, some light raisin, honey with a mild grassy hop character. Taste is somewhere between medium to full bodied, light carbonation with flavors of semi-sweet caramel malt, honey, a touch of herbal spice and some raisin. Finish is semi-sweet, slightly bitter with a grassy and caramel aftertaste. Best served not so cold.

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 24, 2007
On tap at the downtown location. Clear orange-brown body, medium-thick buff head. Toasty, caramely aroma backed by grassy hops. Toasty body with brown sugar and berries, sweet, with candy and medicinal notes. Balanced by earthy, grassy hops. Clean and quick-drinking.

troyc (2422) - Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2007
(Tap) Pours a light brown color with a small tan head. Aroma features light caramel and grain. Taste includes caramel, nut, and brown sugar. A light hoppiness also comes through in here. Smooth mouthfeel, but could use a little more body.

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 (7129) - 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.
