Duck Pond is a subtly complex Nut Brown Ale. Various roasted barley malts lend a wide spectrum to this beer ranging from lighter notes of bready, toasty, and nutty to deeper characters such as prune, raisin, chocolate, and coffee. All of these flavors and aromas are wrapped up in a moderate gravity brown ale (at 4.4% ABV) with a clean finish that leaves you searching for another pint.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Third stop during Minnesota Paul Bunyan loop tour. Sampled on draught at the brewery taproom in Baxter, Minnesota. Pours a semi-clear brownish amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that quickly dissipates and leaves a thin lace. Aroma of roasted nuts, a touch of grassy hops and some light chocolate. Taste is light to medium bodied, flavors of roasted nuts, dark caramel malt and a hint of grassy hops. Finish is semi-dry with a short spice bitterness.

Bacterial (2871) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Draft at All Pints North. This is a pretty average brown ale. A little roasted nuttiness to it. Simple, something that will appeal to someone that thinks they dont like dark beers.

BVery (9668) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Sampled at All Pints North 2013 in Duluth, MN. Hazy amber pour with a frothy head. Bready, some chocolate and nut. Not a bad beer.
