COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship beer is 5.5% alc. Deep amber in color, and slightly cloudy, this beer is remarkably smooth. We "dry-hop" this ale in the conditioning tank meaning fresh hops are added after fermentation to steep and add a subtle fruity nose. The yeast for this beer was custom created and cultured for us by a lab in Oregon, insuring a one-of-a-kind experience found in no other micro.

ruby red pour, nose and flavor match up: fruity, biscuity malt all day long. almost marzen like, hard to believe this is dry hopped, malt is in your face here but not altogether unenjoyable.

Christian (11119) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2008
Amber with a small white head. Pine hops and bready malt in the aroma. Dry and malty flavour with a bitter hoppy finish. Nothing bad, and nothing special about it.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Bottle courtesy of tytoanderso. Pours amber with a white head. Smells vegetal. Tastes sweet and caramelly with a weird saccharine like aftertaste.

bookman10 (641) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2008
Cloudy with a lot of unfiltered yeast floating about. Bitter finish with hints of spice and caramel. Nothing special--I’ve made beer that tasted as good as or better than this in my homebrewing days.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Tough to get through writing this one as I’ve got the Unforgiven by Metallica going through my head. Cloudy amber beer with enough yeast floating about to bake a crapload of bread. It eventually settles leading way to a somewhat unsettling beer. Aroma of caramel, citrus and something sour. Taste of yeast, spice, caramel and light citrus. Mild hop finish that’s a little bitter. There’s something that’s not quite right with this one. Perhaps they can make another unforgiven as well.

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Bottled. Poured medium orange with a short, sticky cap of off-white head, and a whole helluva lot of chunky sediment in there (even with a careful pour). The aroma picked up those sweet orange candies you probably remember from when you were a kid along with a dusting of lighter fruits and what must have been caramel supporting. The flavor had toasty caramel sweetness at the core with dry floral bitterness, odd lighter sourness, and grainy, grassy notes around.. medium-length, tacky finish. Lighter-bodied on the palate.. unfortunately some less desirable notes are what stuck at the end.. seemed like an appropriate array of hops in here. Drinkable, but I didn’t care for it.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Hazy, light umber color with a few "swinkles" floating about. Moderate, stable light ecru head. Nice hoppy nose. Hints of light fruit, toasted malt and caramel as well. The flavors return to the ambers to which I am accustomed. Light fruit and caramel start. Middle has a touch of orange citrus as the hops start top move in. Finish has some toasted malt and a little more fruit ( in the form of apricots and raisins). LInger has a woody hops and bit of acidity. Overall a slightly hoppier amber and better than many.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 28, 2008
[Bottle] Pours a hazy caramelly copper color with a moderate beige head. Aroma is grapefruit, citric hops, caramel malt, and toffee. Flavor follows pretty well, with a medium mouthfeel, and a nice lingering bitterness.

hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2008
12oz bottle. Poured a deeper and cloudy amber color with a small sized off white head. Lots of suspended floaters. Aromas of lot of pine with some citrus and yeast. Tastes of caramel, citrus, and fruity.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Pours a semi cloudy amber orange with a smallish white head. Aroma is lightly sweet with fresh grapefruit, pine hop and caramel malt. Flavor has a good malt backbone as well as a decent amount of hops for the style. Nice fruity aspect as well. Medium bodied, sticky textured. Somewhat long bitter finish.r.
