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.

Had this one on cask at the brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Golden yellow pour, foamy, with piney hoppiness and sweetness of a candied apple, milky mouthfeel, with pineapple tartness and grapefruit. Interesting, but oddly mild.

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

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!!!!

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.

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.

Growler from the brewpub. Poured a transparent copper with a nice tihick off white head, nice lacing. Aroma of burnt brown sugar. Flavor of thick and bitter hops with a little bit of apricot on the middle of the tongue. Aftertaste was medium bitter and full of hops. An ok beer for an amber ale.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 13, 2008
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.

[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.
