badgerben (4386) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Amber color with a "moldy" head. No real aroma. Kind of a malty taste, but nothing special. Slightly bitter, probably from the Packers loosing to the Vikings too many times. HA!

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 29, 2004
Clear amber body. Somewhat lasting off-white head. Light sweet hops like their EPA, but rindier.

I tried this on my buddies reconmondation. A nice hjoppy bear that reminds me of a Christmas Seasonal brew. Maybe it is, hence the name and time of year they had it available. GO PACK!!!!

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Decent hoppiness, nice lasting finish, but little real flavor or aroma beyond a very faint smokiness and hints of citrus.

Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 4, 2003
This beer had more of a brown color than red. Nice malty smell. Seemed to have more hops than malt, surprising for an amber. Slight caramel flavor. Relatively smooth. The malts picked up at the end, finally drowning out the hops.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2002
Slightly chill hazed amber with a light cream colored head. Mild malt and light fruity aroma. Light malt and floral/spicy hops flavors. Mouthfeel has a somewhat slippery rye glide. Nice amber

Tundra will appeal to a smaller general audience than the Badger Red Ale, and that’s a shame. “A helluva more real beer.” Though only a seasonal, this is perhaps the beer I most enjoyed at Whitney’s. It’s everything an amber should be. “A little less malt and a little more bitter would taste like an IPA.” Maybe that’s why I liked it.
