As cascade hopped. Cask at GBBF 2014. It pours clear golden with no head. The nose is earthy, peachy, apricot, stone fruit, grain, honey and grass. The taste is earthly, toasty, grain, stone fruits, dough, mild pine and alcohol with a short finish. Flat, low carbonation and general bad condition. Bad.

Attractive aroma though it hints more at amateur-hour homebrewing. Very boring gold body with minimal head. Very strong hoppy flavour with a dry finish makes up for the less than stellar surface of the beer. Nice dry finish with a strong bite. Not bad at all in fact.

Dark copper pour from a 12oz can. Nice white head and lots of lacing. Nose is biscuit and mild earthy hops. Simple taste, a little hops and a bitter finish. Its not bad, better than the big guys.

Solid Minnesota beer. Could stand more hops. Many better offerings but if it is the only game in town drink up!

Drank from the bottle, so not sure about the color. Nose earthy hop mixed with light sweet malt. Taste metallic bitter up front. Mineral on the early palate as well. Some dank hop. Mild sweetness late. Unfortunately the mineral continues.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Transfer from BA review on 8-23-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a deep golden-amber color with a big off white head. The head fades relatively fast to give a medium level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is rather light but nice. It consists of some bready malt and some caramel as well as a small hop presence of some pine and a little bit of apple.
Taste – The taste begins with a light sweetness and a good bready base. As the taste moves on the caramel sweetness that was present in the beginning gets stronger and a presence of hops becomes more pronounced. While the breadiness gets lighter toward the end, the citrus and pine hop flavors develop further to the end of the taste, and when combined with the sweeter caramel and a light fruit flavor leave a bitter-sweet taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average to slightly above average with the carbonation level being on the lower side. The body is rather fitting, but the carbonation is a bit lower then would be ideal with a greater level likely giving it a bit more of a refreshing and exiting feel.
Overall - A nice session brew with a nice flavors.
