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.

Pleasant aroma, of malt, caramel, toffee. It has a deep cola like brown color. Starts off with a nice sweet caramel flavor, then you get a rich malty taste like cereal. It has a nice spicy herb finish. Solid beer

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a mostly clear dark amber with minimal head. Aroma of caramel and toffee with a hint of dark fruit. Taste is light sweet. Toffee with a bit of dark fruit. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively mouth-filling carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Not my favorite from NG but enjoyable.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a darker copper with a thin beige head. Aroma has lots of biscuit and caramel. Taste does too and it leaves a toasty finish.
