hezron (610) - 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 isnít 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.

CaptainCougar (7131) - 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.

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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2004
Amber color with a mderate ecru head. Sweet hops and malt aromas with a light clean lager nose. Pale malt sweetness throughout. Floral hops jump in the mix and help distact. A touch too sweet for my palate.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Creamy white head, clear dark orange body. Aroma is sweet with strawberry, concord grapes, and maybe caramel. Very sweet taste fruity, again with some caramel. Too sweet for me.

Skyview (5177) - 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.

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.

Pailhead (4778) - Brownstown, 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.

troyc (2473) - 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.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 11, 2006
