Rated at 35,000 feet on a Northwest flight from Detroit to DC. Hey...it was better then ordering the Bud Light. Sparkling amber, thick creamy off-white head. All light aromas of toasted caramel, white bread, hint of butter, with a very slight roasty, fruity undertone. Decent balance, somewhat sweet though with toasted caramel and honey being predominate. No bitternees unfortunately. Medium bodied, smooth soft carbonation, lightly toasted, semi-sweet finish. Nothing great obviously, but it beat the alternative.....

Can-on a Northwest Air flight-I don’t think Page actually brews the canned version, as it says New Ulm, MN-so maybe Schell contract brews it for them. Anyway, it was extremely off. A very harsh metallic finish and a flabby munich malt character that reminded me off a bad homebrew. The worst $5 I ever spent for a beer.

A little hoppy, but not much depth, seems thin. Aroma lacks, but has smooth and malty tones throughout. Excellent complex finish with a sweet aftertaste. Warm.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 1, 2005
In the 12 oz. can during a NWA flight. Reddish amber in color. Nice fluffy head, but lacing was poor in the crappy airline plastic cup. I think this is essentially a Vienna-style ale with a fairly decent malty backbone.

Rich gold color with small head. Muted roasted malt nose. Med weight with a sweet to drying finish. Old malt flavors some roasted notes and faint cherry quality. Eh!

Not bad! Imagine my surprise of having this on a recent Northwest flight. Maybe it’s because NWA has a hub in MN. Anyhow, a bit of malty flavor and really nice. It hit the spot and I had it in a can! Give it a try.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 19, 2004
Bottle pours a nice amber color with a decent head and no lace. The aroma is of slight hops. The flavor is slightly yeasty, malty, and a minor hop finish with a rather thin body. Overall, fair...

hellomynameis (874) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2004
I really enjoyed this one. There was a nice fluffly head, and the colour was a very sparkling clear copper type colour. The flavour was good, nice and malty with an excellent hop finish. Honestly the best of it’s category I’ve had so far.

Frank (2881) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Copper in appearance. A bit of head and a few spots of lace. Nose is very malty and slightly dusty. Overly sweet, sticky and a bit flat. I must say I am not digging this, not in the least.

Ungstrup (29335) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2004
A hazy dark orange beer with a fine collapsing and lazing orange head. The nose is of oranges, yeast, malt, and hints of hops. The flavor is of oranges, yeast, caramel, malt, aroma hops, and slight touches of bitter hops giving it a dry end. Surprisingly yeasty.
