A very smooth and pleasant lager beer. The beautiful color and depth of flavors is achieved by a dominance of Vienna malt with complimentary additions of rye and a couple caramel malts. The crispness and drinkability come from lagering and the flavor balance created by Cascade and Liberty hops. We think you’ll enjoy the difference this beer has in comparison to others of the same style.

On tap at the O’so tap house. Pours a clear smber with a red hue snd a light brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has noted of grain and bread with a bit of backing grassy hops. Flavor is similar with grain and hay upfront and a bit of crisp grass lying underneath.

BVery (9668) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Tap at South Shore Brewery on Nov. 18, 2011. Clear reddish amber pour with a nice white head that laces well. Mild caramel in this, but there is a touch of hops in the taste that works very well.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2008
On Tap at the Great Lakes Brewfest. Reddish amber with a medium white head. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts and mild hops. Taste of sweet malt, nuts and roasted malt. Somewhat chalky in body but not too bad.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Sampled on draught at the ABR 07 in Minneapolis, MN. Pours a clear orange amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a white ring a spotty lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt, some flowery hops and a touch of citrus zest. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with more distinct caramel malt flavor than its aroma. Finish is a good balance of malt and citrus hops to give this a refreshing flavor.

muzzlehatch (4835) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 16, 2006
Draught sample at the brewpub, late July 2006. Wow, wash I excited that there were TWO lagers on tap during my visit, a golden and a red! Could a man do better? Anyway....medium amber with a thin lasting head and some nice lacing....honey-berry sweet aroma, perhaps a touch of cranberry....sweet body, light alcohol notes, grassy and slightly bitter qualities towards the finish, low carbonation....not bad I guess.

JK (5809) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2005
ABR’ 05. This is a decent effort. A light red beer. Aroma of roasted malt, and the flavor is very dry roasted malt as well. Rather plain, but a decent session beer.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2006 Available only at Pizza Luce in Duluth, I believe. Pours, crystal clear clean red. Light dusky and lemony malt aroma. Flavor is a nice, rich, creamy, heavy and chewy blast of firm malt, mixed with wheat bread, bright yeasts, caramel, brown sugar and dulce de leche. This is nicely rounded and balanced with a sweet kiss of European style hops. Pretty respectable.

JPDIPSO (5672) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 4, 2005
Light chestnut color with a touch of ruby. Small off white head. Light alt aromas and little else. Flavors of mild caramel and touch of licorice. Not much going on in this one.
