3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught at the brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a clear copper amber brew with a slow dissolving white head that leaves behind a nice white ring and some spotty lacing. Aroma is quite malty, caramel malt, some floral hops, a touch of brown sugar, and some tropical fruit. Taste is medium bodied, some dry caramel malt flavors with a dry grassy hop character. Finish is a little more dry than average, some tart fruit and grassy hop aftertaste. I strongly doubt this is what Lambeau Field tastes like when tackled to the ground but still an average amber ale overall.

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

[GABF, Denver Co - 2006]
Amber ale that poured very deep and rich and was an excellent Amber ale to drink. A “Packer” Seasonal Ale I liked the name and the beer was one of my favs of the day.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Decent hoppiness, nice lasting finish, but little real flavor or aroma beyond a very faint smokiness and hints of citrus.

Draft at the brewpub. Poured a clear medium orange color with an off white head. Diacetyl aroma of butterscotch and caramel. The flavor was similar with a little flowery hop mixed in. Light bodied (a bit watery, actually) and slightly sweet. So so.

Now this was more like it! I liked this a lot better than the badger. Pours a pleasent shiny copper body with a large frothy head. a oaky taste, with a hint of red peppers and sausage. No lie! a good packer game day brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Translucent and opulent copper in color with an icy white pond rung fading into the center. Wet cardboard calls out the nose with caramel, citric brown bread, soggy graham crackers, mild amaretto and strawberry puffs. Nutty cocoa powder airiness settles in for flavor with a campfire cardboard trait to it. Super clean filtration distracts the flavors, making some aspects out to resemble infant fabric softener. That’s the bad part. The balance and flavor of earthy, dry cocoa mud is the simplistic yet enjoyable part. Nutty, medium-fired cigar wrappers crumble in the finish, and the aftertaste resembles that “morning after smoking a cigar” mouth flavor.

Clear amber body. Somewhat lasting off-white head. Light sweet hops like their EPA, but rindier.
