COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This spring time brew contains a sturdy German hop profile that gives it inherent spiciness that leads to a crisp, dry, fresh finish to balance the sweet malt character.

My favorite Upland beer. Smooth maltiness. Good color. Nice spiciness from the hops. An excellent example of the style, albeit with a slightly higher amount of hops.

Bottled in April 2009. A: Slightly hazed light amber color with a decent head and plenty of lacing. S: Slightly sweetened malt with a little bit of grassiness. T: Sweet grains with a tad bit of amber/caramel to it. Hops are a bit weak. M: Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation and little alcohol feel. D: Pretty drinkable, but nothing remarkable about this one. Not the finest of Upland’s offering, but still a pretty good beer. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-02-2009

Pours coppery with an off-white head that fades after a few minutes. Aroma is bready with some hop and light fruit. Taste is bready sweetness with a bitter, hoppy, dry finish. Mouthfeel is light and somewhat creamy.

ContemplateBeer (1524) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 17, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2010 Aroma of toffee, caramel and sweet roll. Appearance was light brown with tan head. Flavor matched the nose, with a nice interplay between malty sweetness and light (though boozy) hop character. Palate was bubbly and creamy. Pretty good.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Pours a transparent deep copper amber with a spotty lacing cream-colored head. Has a semisweet toasty grainy German malty nose with a touch of noble hops. Starts with good fullness and a grainy caramel malty sweetness well balanced with some slightly resiny earthy green hops finishing drier crisp and bittersweet. Very true to style and enjoyable.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 26, 2009
Pours amber/copper wth a thin white head. Smells of light fruit, some spice, toasted malt. Tastes breaddy, fruity, caramelly with some spicy hints.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Appearance is a rusty gold with a bit of cloudiness. Initial bouquet is malt. Very creamy on the palate with a full bodied flavor of malt and a suggestion of hickory nut. Finish is smooth with a nice dry hop taste. Pairs well with brats, burgers or tube steaks. These Hoosiers show they can please a discriminating Badger’s palate. Nice job!

Ughsmash (7121) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Bottled. Poured clear medium orange with a creamy cap of white head. The aroma picked up dry earthy spices upfront, backed by aged caramel and bread.. just a bit of warmth overhead. The flavor opened with some tangy, fruity bitterness and earthy character, with caramel and redder fruity meat behind.. peppery spices and alcohol danced well around the tongue, and everything came back together on the finish.. warm through the belly. Medium-plus bodied with active carbonation on the palate.. spicy and well-balanced, but there was an almost cloying feel at points on the back. Overall a very well executed bock.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 24, 2009
Draft at tap room. Pours amber with an off white head. Bready aroma. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a typical smooth lagery mouthfeel. Bready, caramel, and biscuity type malt backbone countered by a moderate European (spicy/herbal) hoppiness. Noble hops? Alcohol well-hidden.
