COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We have attempted to brew a beer from the early days of Mt Horeb. Full of flavor and taste as the area was settled.


4.1
   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
JoeinEscaz˙ (1325) - Ozark, Missouri, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Sampled at Great Taste. Said to be an old-school lager recipe from the 1860s, which gets us off on the right foot straightaway. Lovely aromatics, honest hop flowers and grain silos. Just downright farmy. Crisp grassy bitterness, a lightly sweet grainy taste, going drier for the finish. Excellent stuff.

nuplastikk (4129) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Draft at GT. Yellowed-tan, thick off-white head. Medium bodied, some nice easy yeast tones. Somewhat watery but that works with the style. Classic noble hops..maybe a summer Hellerbock. Simple, subtle, subdued. Some graininess, lemony. Not mind blowing, but a solid brew.

2.7
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
dionysus (1449) - Arizona, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Thirsty Troll Brew Fest. Pour is deep gold with a white head. Aroma is somewhat grainy pale malt and some grassy hops. Flavor shows pretty much the same with a slight floral quality from time to time. Overall the name seemed more impressive than the actually beer turned out to be.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
BVery (5616) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at the brewpub. Semi-hazy dirty yellow pour. Minimal head. Light peach-fruit aroma. Lighter palate with carbonation. Lemon and wheat on taste.

crossovert (6355) - Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2011
A pretty standard Amber ale, some hops here, some malt there, it is pretty nondescript.

3.5
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
arkurzynski (1401) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Golden yellow. Crisp lager malt aroma, mildest of hops. Clean pale lager malts that finish with light noble-type hop bitterness. Good presence on the palate, more dense than expected. Crisp, semi-dry finish.

3.1
   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
Narnad (1417) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Clean, golden color with a modest white head. Aroma is very light as a whole but notes a grainy/light hay presence and a light flowery hops nose. Flavor has a grainy pale malt presence with a mild earthy hops middle and a very light hint of vanilla at the tail end. Body is nice and light with a dry finish. Overall an enjoyable, well balanced brew.

3.3
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
cbfobes (2153) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2011
On tap at the brewpub, pours a clear golden with a thin head and some lacing, the aroma has a faint amount of grain and the flavor is pretty crisp and nice, easy drinking and smooth.
