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.

12 ounce bottle courtesy of bertram. Thanks! 3700th rating. Woot! Pours a clear brownish red color with a creamy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, banana and a faint bit of chocolate. The taste is toasted malts, banana, cherries, pineapple, grapes, plum, caramel and just the faintest touch of burnt sugar. Medium bodied and quite creamy in texture. Very nice... these guys sure know how to make a lager.
