COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Medium bodied and lightly hopped, this Oktoberfest-style ale is brewed in tribute to the Red Jacket Mine of what is now Calumet and to the glory days of the copper industry in the Keweenaw Peninsula.

Can. Clear amber with a light white head. Aroma is mild malt, a little musty. Taste is mild, body is medium so it’s not too weak -- has enough substance. I like this -- easy to drink with taste & body.

madvike (2759) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 16, 2011
Can - Pours deep, dark amber with a thick fluffy off-white head. Lightly soured malt, with some breadiness and a touch of herbal hops. Wow, there’s barely any flavor in this at all. A light maltiness, with a mineral quality and basically no hop presence. Light yeastiness in the finish. Really inoffensive, but would like a bit more flavor even for a session beer.

triguy84 (235) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Pours a clear light brown, rocky head, and lots of bubbly carbonation. Malt forward, nice "bock" aroma. Light malt flavor with a hidden sourness. Medium-light body, somewhat dry finish.

Tasted 8/20/10. 12oz Can. Hazy with a dark amber hue. Layer of off-white head. Aromas of cereal grains and caramel with a subtle, sweet fruity ester. Nice nose! Medium bodied and full of sweet malts. Bready and mild caramel. Dry finish with a slight hop bitterness. The finish is mild with a mix of both bitter and sweet. Not too bad at all!

deyholla (6737) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 9, 2010
On tap. Poured clear rusty amber with a light brown head that slowly dissipated to the edges. Aroma was grain, cereal and hay with a slight pine hop backbone. Flavor was similar, the grain was bit sweeter, but the same pine hop backbone was still present and grew toward the finish.

On tap at the brewpub. It looked pretty, smelled OK, but then it was a very sour beer--seemed as if the tap lines needed some cleaning. Very disappointing.

12oz can. Describing your beer as Oktoberfest-style ale is just a bad call, in my opinion. Hazy brown-red color. Beige head. An OK amber or red, nothing extraordinary. Very malt centered, not much hop character. Fruity tones from the amber malt. Inoffensive session beer.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Can purchase at Eastman Party Store in Midland MI. Pours a copper amber with a dissipating rocky light beige head. Very faint aroma of sweet bready German malts. Light bodied approaching medium with average carbonation. Flavor of munich malts, dough, and a hint of noble hops. Basically, this tastes like an average Marzen that has been watered down.

12 ounce can from a friend. Pours a very slightly hazy copper color with a large creamy, frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel with faint, herbal hops. Taste is caramel, berries and a bitter hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Looks good, but fairly bland.
