1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On Tap: Pour was light amber with a white head. Aroma was butter......movie theatre butter. Flavor hid this character a little but it still came out. There must have been something wrong because why would anyone want such a blatant butter aroma in their beer?

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy, light amber color. The nose is quite hoppy; with hints of light fruit, toasted malt and caramel as well. Comes across the palate with a light fruit and caramel start. It finishes with a mild root beer taste with hops. Overall a very interesting brew; but also very good.

I picked up a six pack when I was in Wisconsin Dells from the brew master, Thanks for the sample. Pours a hazy amber/orange color, with a little less than an inch of white foam with good lacing & mild malt in the aroma. This is a smooth and drinkable beer - pretty good but nothing flashy. I taste a little bid of yeasty malt and a subtle herbal hop presence in the finish. After a few sips, I really begin to appreciate the smoothness of this beer if I could get this in Michigan this could be my go to anytime beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Bottle courtesy of tytoanderso. Pours amber with a white head. Smells vegetal. Tastes sweet and caramelly with a weird saccharine like aftertaste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
