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.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 10, 2005
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.....

NeonLX (261) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Poured from a 12-oz. bottle: clear, medium amber with a thinnish white head. Decent lacing. Somewhat grainy aroma. Surprisingly hoppy taste with a good underlying dose of malt. Smooth mouthfeel with average carbonation. Nice, clean finish.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Purchased several cases (cans) for our company picnic. Pours a clear carmale amber brew with an average sized off-white head that quickly dissolves to an almost clean with a fine film . Aroma of roasted multi-grainy caramel malt, some citrus zest and a touch of sour apple. Taste is highly carbonated, medium bodied with multi-grain dough and some light citrus peel flavors. Finish is dry, slightly musty with a faint pecan flavor in the aftertaste.

bluemooner (640) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - MAR 6, 2008
Pours a rich amber color yet with a taste that is quite thin. It was an ok beer but not really what I was expecting.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Tasted 09/09/09. 12oz bottle. Filtered with an amber hue. Finger width of off-white head. Faint aromas of caramel and doughy bread. Medium bodied with a very smooth malt character. Good amount of sweetness from the malts. No noticeable flaws. Sessionable and easy. Finishes with a mildly sticky sweetness. Little to no hop presence. This is not too bad! Quaffable and mild, but very drinkable.

Pours amber with an off white head. Aroma is yeast bread and caramel. Flavor is sweet and malty, earthy and grainy, with a hint of bitterness.

Braudog (5902) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - JAN 18, 2004
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.

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.

Medium orange colored body with a thick white head. The aroma is potatoes with some green bell peppers and a hin of caramel. The taste is light caramel with some light carrots. A nice subtle vienna lager. This could be a good session beer.
