GrainBeltGuzzler (249) - Goodhue, Minnesota, USA - MAY 16, 2005
pleasently suprised by a hoppy aroma from the bottle. a brownish orange color with little or no head, body is almost a syrupy thick. flavor is suprisingly strong bitter hoppy flavor. Very hoppy for itís style and much better than anticipated, flavor isnít the smoothest and they donít blend real well. but still a very pleasant suprise, by no means an exceptional beer, but a great start for a young brewer

TheEnemy (562) - Chicago, USA - AUG 18, 2005
Sampled on tap at the brewery. Slightly spicy hop aroma, nice rich golden color. Flavor was off-dry like a hop combination was clashing -- had the dry-hop character of the style but with none of the fruity/floral tones to moderate. Nice thick body would have been more enjoyable had it been carrying a decent flavor with it. Proprietor Bill Kuether acknowledged this beer was a work in progress and that a recipe revision is in the works. Good riddance to this version.

2004 Autumn Brew Review: Amber Coloring. Small Head. If you Donít Smell or Taste This Beer, Youíll Be Better Off.. Piney Aroma and Flavor...But Not Like Alba Scots Ale....This was Wrong...Possibly a Bad Batch?

ElGaucho (2240) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2004
2004 ABR. Aroma is putrid. Smells like a rotting jar of jalapeno peppers. Dark gold, to light amber in color. Very little carbonation. Thin, off-white head. Nice lace. Tastes like it smells. Based on the favorable ratings given by TheDean and marinaro500, either this was a bad batch, or they changed the recipe.

badgerben (4502) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2004
Autumn Brew Review 2004. Pours a decent enough amber color with little head. Thatís where the decency stops. Very piney nose. It tastes about the same, like some blend of a Douglas Fir and hops. Blech.

TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 11, 2004
Sampled at Great taste of the midwest. A small brewery that I had never heard of (neither did ratebeer as they werenít on here until recently). The Pale was nice; smooth with a citrusy taste.

Festival tap: Toasty pale malts balance this very hoppy pale. Big piney nose and citrusy as well.
