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.

bhensonb (10765) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 16, 2008
Bottle. Sort of a bland, not very sweet caramel aroma. Nice amber color with no head at all. Near medium body with very little carbonation. Sort of a bland not very sweet caramel with hints of hop. Decent enough, but not anything to get excited about. I suspect the bottle is atypical in that it lacks carbonation, but I don’t think more fizz would change my feeling.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2006 Had this one on my Northwest flight to Hawaii the other month. Poured an Amber color with a smaller head. Malty caramel tastes with a light hoppy finish. Re-rate from 12oz bottle. Poured a medium amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of grain, and caramel. Tastes of caramel, grain and some hops. Thin body.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2008
Bottle from Park Lane Liquor in Lancaster, CA, bottle states it is from Minneapolis, MN. The beer pours a glowing orange-amber color with a minimal off-white head that bubbles away to nothing immediately. Lacing is virtually non-existent. Tart fruit and light malt aroma. Medium-bodied with a tart fruit and pungent malt flavor that makes me wonder if this beer predates the Stevens Point ownership. Very little hops are present. The finish is fruity cough medicine. Pass.

Ughsmash (7099) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2007
Bottled. Poured clear lighter amber with a quickly-receding white head that left a thin film. Aroma was of artificially-sweetened toasty caramel with faint herbal accents.. very simple and cheap smelling. Flavor was a touch better with toasty caramel again and some mild leafy bitterness and light honey sweetness. Light-bodied and too sweet overall with a very dry back end and finish. This had no glaring flaws, but not much going for it either.

Bottle pours light amber with a miniscule white dishwater like head.   Light carbonation and zero lacing.   Slightly malty aroma, notes of buttered toast and sour fruit.   Very uneventful on the flavor, slightly bready and thats it.   Medium bodied, mediocre mouthfeel.   Not all that impressing.   Thanks goes out to BierBauch for the trade!

BVery (5969) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Tap. Mostly clear amber pour with a clingy white head. Pretty simple aroma and flavor of caramel malt and mild hop. Okay.

Bottle and served in my SN pint glass:

A light amber hue with an initial fizzy head which fades to a small ring and left some lace. The aroma has notes of grain and pale malt with a dash of caramel. Some buttered bread and very mild fruit esters as well. The taste is rather straight forward but enjoyable. You get some acidic fruits and light bitters with that sweet and bready malt base. The finish is rather short but some lingering caramel flavor does stay around. The feel is lively enough and very lightly astrengent. I have had better but also far worse, a quaffable brew all things told.

Drank from a can aboard Northwest Airlines. Presented with a good amber hue and nice head. But it has that airy aroma of a macro. At first I didn't distinguish much flavor, but a tinge of hop bitterness saved it from awfulness. Towards the end of the glass, as it warmed, more of a decent character and flavor shone through, but still an average beer.
