Nose of malt, barley, grain and a hint of fruit - pretty muted.

High on the blandometer.

Light, light caramel colored pour. Sizable off-white head. Some lacing. Smell is malty and that’s about it. Slightly carbonic malty taste. A little fruity as well. A bit bitter in the back. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz twist off bottle purchased as part of a mystery six pack from Andy’s in Rochester, Minnesota. SEP2412 printed on bottle neck. The pour is a light clear golden, with a fizzy one inch light tan head that falls loosely and quickly. The aroma is metallic sweet malt, bit of a grainy corn, and grass. The taste is the sharp malt metallic sweetness, followed by a general graininess - it is a bit cleaner tasting then the nose suggested. The palate is light bodied, active carbonation, and a thin verging on watery finish. Easy enough to drink.

Nice amber color. Big creamy head that dissipates kinda quick. Malts are dominant with just a little bit of hops picked up on the finish. A decent amber from the boys of wisconsin.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle from the sampler case. Depending on your mood, it’s either not bad or the equivalent of drinking rust water. Worth a try in any case.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear light amber with about a finger of white head. Aroma of skunky grassy hops, light caramel and grain. Taste is light bitter. Grassy hops and caramel. Light bodied with a slick texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not that bad. I’ve had worse.
