Headbanger (3323) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Draft Flight 4/26/00 (Brewpub)-Pours a clear copper with a small ring for a head. Aroma of nothing. Taste of malt and hops with a dry finish. This medium to full bodied brew is not bad and pretty tasty.

Aroma is a mix of very nutty malts and strong hints of toffee and coffee. The flavor is toffee, nutty malts and a mildly fruity/tart finish.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2012 Sampled as part of a flight "plank" of the current drafts at the brewpub bar. Poured to plastic with an orange/amber color, a modest, off white head, and wavey lacing. The aroma was soft malt, a touch of caramel, light graininess, but that same acetic hint that I picked up in the Lighthouse Light was present, although slightly masked due to a little more complexity and ingredients in the style. The flavor was lightly dry and crisp, with medium hop bitterness in only a light to medium body. Altogether, just okay.

As of January 2012, this is classified as an amber ale on RateBeer. I think of it as more of an APA and it is an OK rendition. It’s a cloudy copper color. I’d say it’s a little lighter than most APAs even w/ a thin head that leaves behind a nice lattice of lace. Nose is rather subdued, a bit of earth and some toffee, but the flavor is nicely bitter and decently balanced with a little sweetness. This is forgettable overall but it drinks pretty good.

Bottle… Pours hazy and golden with an orange tint and a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The aroma offers biscuity, bready malts and peppery hops with an afterthought of toffee. Medium to full-bodied with vibrant carbonation. The flavor tilts just a hair toward the sweet side of balance and presents moderately toasted barley countered nicely by moderate, earthy hop bitterness. Short, crisp, bittersweet finish. Kudos to my pops for bringing this one down from Wisconsin!

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2011
Clear amber with a quickly fading tan topper. Aroma of caramel, toffee, dough and mild hops. Taste is of caramel, bready malt, diacetyl and mild hops. Finishes up with a bit of fruit and mild bitterness.

A very generic "copper ale". Watch out for this brewery they often have notes of diacetyl in their beers.

Clear honey colored with a small off white head. Sweet honey malt aroma with a hint of sweet grain. Flavor is caramel malt up front quickly fading to a piney bitterness and a dry malty finish.

I really need to try again with this brew pub. This had off flavors and wasn’t very convincing. Maybe I went on an off day. Serving: Tap
