COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beaver is the work horse of the forest but Bucky knows a good beer when she tastes it! Maris Otter Malt plus Styrian Golding Hops make a medium- bodied brown ale that has malt sweetness with wonderful hop flavor & aromas.

Pours a clear copper body with a nice full head and plenty of retention. A sweet honey aroma with floral notes, and spicey hops. Well integrated hops midpalate, grapefruit flavors are prevalent, finishes long and smooth.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2007
On draught at the brewpub in Wisconsin Dells. Pours a clear medium/dark caramel brew with an average sized creamy off-white head that slowly dissolves to a fine film and ring. Aroma of caramel malt, some sweet apples, toffee and a touch of milk chocolate. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated, with a sweet hoppy character with a caramel malt flavor. Finish has a slight dry bitter aftertaste that lingers around after the finish,

mlist55 (210) - media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Light caramel with hints of nuts and floral hops. Mild malt and hints of milk chocolate balance by mild floral hops. Light pine and earth noted near the finish. Not a bad english pale.

JMerritt (1828) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2005
Dark copper with a small white head with white lacing that is small but noticeable. Pine needles, alcohol, toffee, and light chocolate aroma. Hops are mild with biscuity caramel malts dominant. Pillowy mouthfeel. Finish is chocolate malt, malted milk balls, and a light roastiness. A rather malt dominated pale.

ElGaucho (2229) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Smells and looks like a brown ale, and now that I see the commercial description, I now know why. One of the darkest pale ales I’ve seen. Faintish aroma. Slightly hazy dark amber in color with an off-white head. No visible carbonation and some lace. Too much roasted malt for a pale ale, albeit ok for an English PA, but this is not a bad beer. Actually, pretty good overall.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Deep amber with reddish hues, along with a creamy tan peninsula for the head. Aroma is pretty nonexistent. Some cedar panels and maple syrup, but very faint. Creamier than expected. Accents of rye, sourdough and pine. Mustiness in line with an oak chest and a heavily stocked humidor. Moosejaw continues to do pretty good darker-shaded ales.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Darker copper with white lacing. nose is faint hops and the taste is more mellow hops with some malt finish. Actually pretty good and easily drinkable.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Copper color with a smaller light beige head. This place does love to serve the brews chilled. Take some time to reduce the temp to drinking condition. Light caramel with hints of nuts and floral hops. Mild malt and hints of milk chocolate balance by mild floral hops. Light pine and earth noted near the finish. Not a bad english pale.

PorterPounder (5656) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2005
On tap at the brewpub/restaurant in the Wisconsin Dells. Seems to be a weaker cousin of the Kilbourn IPA. Light copper color, faint hoppy aroma. Some decent bitter notes redeem it some and there are some hints of chocolate in the back end. Mouthfeel, slipping to thin. Not their best.
