Draft. Clear golden color, medium off white head, solid lacing. Aroma of subtle straw. Taste is similar, with moderate bitterness. Too plain.

On draft at republic. Copper pour with a moderate white head. Nice aroma with lots of citrus and pine note. A little bit of sweet caramelly malts. Nice bitter finish with moderate carbonation and body. Always a good choice at the bar. Most places in MN have this, so it often saves me from crappy beer.

Alright, this ia a fine example of what an "everyday beer" should be like... it isnít hard hitting and overstrong with itís taste, but it is just a good mix of hops, barley, malt. and water!

Pour is a copper with a large white head. Aroma is decently hopped. Flavor is a little watery but there is a decent enough malt with some hops to round things out. It was just ok and a beer that smelled a whole lot better coming out of the bottle.

Now this is a fine tasting brew! It has a nice hoppy hit up front and then is mellowed out some by sweet caramel flavors. The long-lasting bitter aftertaste is very complementary to this beer. Makes me wish I had made up some fish tacos topped with habanero-guacamole! Will definitely be getting more of these soon!

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Solid short head,very good lacing thin film of leftover foam,light copper color.
Aroma seems a little different,kind of skunky,minerally,A1 sauce weird beef like spice aroma-maybe a mix of the grain and hops,probably some nobel or german hops.Beef boulion comes to mind a little.Somewhat offensive smell like someone cooked a big meal in a small room and then you smelled your shirt the next day.
I dont think this is fresh,bought it off the room temp shelf must have been overexposed im going to assume this isnt this beers best potential,but im going as is.
Light/light med body some citrus then the weird hop flavor/old abused yeast with light carmal and smooth ok mouthfeel but with a light beer taste with some herbal bittering some stale flat taste and
