3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Minneapolis airport. A deep amber color with a good nose of caramel malts and just a touch of hops. A really good balanced flavor. I got some of the flowery hop flavor, but not much of the bitterness. Has an average palate for the style.

On tap at Rock Bottom Minneapolis before the RBSG 2007 Surly tour. I loved this one. Nice coopery color, small creamy head, sweet caramely flavor with other dark fruits. I have a thing for Vikings and explorers...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a pint at the Minneapolis airport on 10/17/08. Poured deep amber. Aroma - light malt. Taste was fairly sweet with some earthy hops, malt and caramel. Maybe a bit thin, but overall very drinkable. One of the better offerings from Rock Bottom.
