3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Re-Rate 12/02/02: Translucent deep copper color on the pour, the head minimal, the lace sparse. The nose is malt, sweet; hints of caramel of maple syrup more like it. Front is malt; the top skeletally thin, the finish is weak and waterish, middling carbonation, minimal hops not much of a beer actually.

Deep red color, medium head. A full-bodied amber. Intense malt flavor, sweet and very robust. Not very hoppy. Good balance. Nice flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and very smooth. Aftertaste is malty and slightly sweet. Very nice beer.

From the land of "Hate and Ham" comes a pretty decent brew. Flavor has a nice maltiness to it. Not much head although there is a decent amount of carbonation.

After pouring the beer the yeasty aroma told me I was in for a treat. The beer had the malt flavor I enjoy and reminded me of a euro Oktoberfest. By far the best thing I’ve ever experienced to come out of Iowa.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
This brew pours from the bottle a clear ruddy copper. The average creamy off-white head is mostly diminishing with decent lacing. The aroma is mostly molassess malt and earthy yeast, some hints of perfumed hops are also present. Flavor starts and finishes fruity and sweet. The light to medium creamy body is soft with a slight chalky/dry feel to the finish. Nice.

A middle of the road amber. Just noit enough malt for style.

A relatively pleasant amber lager. Decently balanced, I taste unique hop and malt characteristics.

An excellent brew! It is just so enjoyable to drink, a milestone in casual beers. Very smooth, and a wonderful mix of malt and hops, but nothing to bold or extreme
