Sweet, caramel aroma, a little bock-malty , nice. Clear, dark woody color; OK label. Nice toast, grassy, moderately sweet, a twiggy bitterness. Medium body, slippery mouthfeel, average carbo. I liked the finish and maltiness. Enjoyed this. BOTM club selection, thanks Uncle Doug.

Red brown, sweet smelling. Not very bitter. Caramel tasting with some toast and grass hops. Mayhem a bit too sweet for the style, but a very good tasty, malty beer.

12 oz bottle purchased as part of a mix a six at the Festival in Onalasaka, Wisconsin. The pour is a clear golden amber with a two inch light tan head. The head is lasting, falls with nice lace. The aroma is caramel malt, some plum, and a bit of a dustiness. The taste is the sweet caramel malt throughout, with a bit of grass and hay in the middle, and mineral in the back. As the beer warms, the mineral gets a dirty earthy edge to it. The palate is medium to light bodied, very low carbonation, and the slightly dirty dry finish. The dry finish does help to cut the sweetness. Just OK.

Pours a cloudy amber, with nose of caramel, dark fruits, and nuts. A little sweet, but the flavors are good. Some sour cherries, raisins, and a chocolate caramel on the end. Pretty good!

Well, a mediocre beer from a less than mediocre brewery. Pretty much sums it up.

Deep amber with brown hints. Fruity caramel malt, toast, light skunky hops. Flavor is caramel and heavily toasted malt, syrupy fruit. Mild hops. Chalky/mineral taste with a finish that has too much sweetness. Creamy.

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear amber/red with a quick diminishing head and no lacing, the aroma is straight forward with the sweet malt and the taste is much of the same with a little hint of grain in the finish and touches of caramel, doesn’t really blow me away.

dekester1 (346) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Poured a nice dark reddish amber with a slightly tan head that faded to lace rather quickly. Aroma was mainly of malt with a sweetness. Taste was similar with slightly sweet, malty/grainy front end followed up with a moderate hop finish. Mouthfeel was good. Overall, I thought this brew was pretty good and may come back later for another purchase from the folks at Sand Creek.
