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.

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?

stankenk (130) - Maplewood, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2008
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.

Very nice low carbinated beer. Goes down way to fast. Crisp, yeast and malt.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Pours a cloudy amber orange colour with an off white head. Taste is firm and slightly hopped, with caramel, bready and lemon notes. Aroma is semi-fruity with biscuity notes and grapefruit.

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.

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 (11479) - 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 (712) - 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.

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.
