3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a hazy orange with a small head.
The aroma is pretty caramelly. Itís got some chocolate & cherry. The alcohol is evident but mild on the nose.
The flavor is sweet but not overwhelmingly so. The caramel is fairly restrained itís got some honey & certainly some alcohol bite. The toasty malt character is really enjoyable & probably my favorite aspect of the beer.

Aroma is fruit, malts and hints of dark bread and nuttiness. The flavor is moderately strong malts, fruit, nutty notes and a slightly sour/dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clearish copper/amber. Creamy head, some lace. Above average carb. Aroma is nutty and caramel. Sweet toasty. Some ripe fruits. Full mouthfeel, malty somewhat sweet. Minerally slightly boozy, with Oktoberfest kind of flavor/character.Not shure if I think its smooth, seems like an ale to me. Pretty decent, not real familiar or too experienced with this style though.

Tap at New Bohemia. Solid copper coloring and a hearty lacing. Lots of malt here. Aroma is sweet and malty. Hop is absent which was expected. Notes of caramel and maybe toffee. Surprised this one impresses me. I would give it a shot if you come across it.

My favorite from Rush River. I donít usually favor higher alcohol beers, but the smell and bite from this alt were great with the full taste. Even had a good aftertaste, and liked the second half of the glass as much as the first.

Reddish orange pour some persistent head. Aroma is grassy. Toasty rye flavor. Tastes sweet hay, caramel, spicy grain, some sour lactic. Sweet palate, but approachable not excessively sweet.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Glowing orange-copper color. Thin, creamy white head. Pleasantly true-ish to style, nice toasty brown malt notes. Muted noble hops, faint spiciness in the background. Has some of the nice caramel sweetness if a Sticke, but not quite as refined as an authentic version. Comes off a touch boozy, and yet still a little hollow and one-dimensional as well. An interesting effort.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle pours a bright amber with a large khaki head. Aroma of caramel and toffee malts, graham cracker, and grassy hops. Very sweet fruits and caramel with a hard hit of alcohol. Too sweet, too boozy.
