Tap @ Raccoon Lodge... Poured a deep ruby with an off-white head. Toasty aroma with a bready quality. Foamy texture. Big malts and sweet toffee and almond notes. Dry finish with a hard candy (like butterscotch) sweetness.

Tap @ Raccoon Lodge: Darker copper pour with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel malt and roasty tones. A little earthy in the flavor with some more malt, roast and caramel, into a crisp floral finish. Some citrus notes in the middle. Not bad.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Draft @ Raccoon Lodge. Pours the color of a penny; clear, deep copper-tan; light tan head with fine-bubbled lacing. Wet biscuity malts and a light citrus presence in the aroma; basic and crisp. Medium mouthfeel: biscuity maltiness, light cola, and brown sugar forming the core of things; solid malt center while staying crisp; minerals and a very light citrus at the perimeter. I could see drinking a lot of this, but it doesn’t quite have enough to keep things interesting. Medium finish: toasty / bready malts and minerals; nicely dry.

on tap: amber in color with off white head, aroma has some sweet malt along with a hint of hops, flavor well balanced tastes between a weak IPA and an amber nothing really sticks out but not a bad beer.

bhensonb (11378) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 20, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Aroma of lightly smoked malt. Translucent darkish brown color with a lacing beige head. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Flavor of smoky malt and mild floral hop. The finish somehow ends up rather balanced. A good brew (5.35% / 48.6 IBU)

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2007
Sampled on tap at the brewery during ABA Beer Tour ’07. Pours a dark ruby copper brew with a creamy off-white head that dissolves to a fine white ring. Aroma of caramel barley malt with sweet apples. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with a smooth and creamy texture. Flavors picked up are caramel and some toffee character. Finish is a soft and bready without much bitter aftertaste. Nice done!

Smooth malty ale that would make a great session beer in the winter months. Rich caramel flavor on the palate with a slightly earthy finish.
