COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The “Back Forty” is property commonly found on the outskirts of the Wisconsin family farm. Here uncultivated acres wait prime for adventure- forts, tree houses, rope swings and first kisses! A place to run away, to camp, to climb, to build, to play. Not actually home but not too far away. That’s the Back Forty. The beer you hold is similar both dark and adventurous still smooth and familiar. Here’s a beer you can enjoy without pretense or explanation. Every mind requires some acres of possibility, space for dreams, the great escape, everyone needs a Back Forty.

bottle from Summer SS. aromas was best part of beer - toasted malts, nuttiness - great aroma - taste wasn’t as good - a little bland with a combo of over carbonation, spice, hop bite at end that wasn’t enjoyable.

Clear brown in color... Aroma of nuts, caramel, toffee, molasses... Flavor is nutty, light tobacco notes, plum... Solid bock, but not terribly exciting ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to glass. A deep, clear caramel color with a thick off white head. Malt sweetness, with a little roasted hint in the aroma (with a little metallic?). Medium carbonation. A malty, yeasty sweetness. It mellows a little as it warms. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Look: pours a light brown. Maybe a deep ruby. Pours clear with a white head that fades quickly. No lacing on the rim. Smell: very sweet malty aroma. Banana. Taste: heavy malt. Bready flavor. Slight bitterness on the back. Feel: almost feels like a soda. Heavy carbonation. Foams every time you tilt the glass back and forth. Overall: not my style of beer. But ok. Nothing wrong with it just not my style. First drank: home 7/13/14
