Tap. Mostly clear amber pour. White dissipating head. Mild caramel nose. Very malty. Taste is caramel malt, earth, and a touch bitter on the finish. Pretty good.

CLevar (376) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 23, 2011
From a growler: Clear copper red pour, a decent amount of very light brown head, ok lacing and retention. Aroma is a bit of sweet malt, some biscuit, floral hops, some grass. Flavor is malt forward, with sweet crystal flavors giving way to decent hop bitterness on the back end. Quite creamy. Overall, a fairly enjoyable brew (with 8% VERY well hidden) but just a bit too sweet for me.

arminjewell (6152) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2011
Pours slightly hazy red, white head. Aroma is some caramel, spice, touch of slight grass. Taste is spice and earth hops, slight rye, big toffee and caramel, bitter ending. No alcohol, but not much going for it.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
DalzAle (1975) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Growler. Clear dark brownish orange pour, a little lasting carbonation and a nice earthy light bitter aroma. Flavor is light malt, marmalade, a little herbal bite on the finish. Very good, and surprisingly drinkable @ 8%

kbutler1 (1349) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Draft. Pours into a pint glass a copper red color with a 1 finger light tan head. The aroma is pretty clean with slight notes if toasted bread and caramel. Sweet bready caramel flavor upfront transitions to some hop bitterness notes, but nothing too extreme. The 8% is not noticeable at all and is deceivingly drinkable. Minimal lace.
