Tap. Amber with small head. Sweet caramel with light hop bitterness. Clean and pleasant, but rather bland.

As mentioned earlier, difficult to tell from their brown ale. All had bland malt flavors, almost no aroma, watery consistency. Forgettable lot of beers.

12oz can, purchased as a single (for $2.50) from Woodstock Wine & Cheese in Michigan. Clear amber color. Thin half finger of off-white head. Toasty malt, some pumpkin like light spice? Decent lace. Kind of a musty taste, moderate bitter, light to moderate sweet, some metallic. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation, dry finish. Mediocre amber ale.

Straight from the can in deer camp. Malt and caramel on the palate, but not much taste beyond that. Probably should try it again in a glass.

9/22/12. Poured from can into pint glass. Stiff, lingering head. Mild aroma. Beautiful, copper-red color. Taste starts smooth with fruit and spice, tickles the palate and then gone. Flavor vanishes into barely identifiable aftertaste. Meh... A disappointing Oktoberfest.
This is the first I heard of this brewery located in the UP. At least the beer only contains the classic 4 ingredients. Would not order another.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a reddish-orange, with smallish head. Aroma is grassy and a bit sweet, with a hint of hops. Flavor a bit watered down, but tends toward the sweet malt, with some fruit and some hops. Just a bit on the metallic side (courtesy of the can?). Not terrible, nothing too special, either.

12oz can. Dark copper color with an average off white head. Sweet malt and caramel aroma. Toasted malt and nut flavor turns sweeter with a caramel finish. Dry texture with average carbonation. Nothing stands out but nothing wrong with it either.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Reddish golden pour with a medium sized off-white head. Malty and a bit sweet with notes of nuts, bread and hints of citrus. Nothing spectacular but very drinkable.
