On tap at Blue Heron Brewpub. Mahogany with a thin slowly fading tan crown. Aroma of toasted German malts, grains and light floral hops. Taste of light toffee, toasted malt, super mild fruit and a semi-dry ending. nuplastikk (6476) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2012
On tap at Blue Heron. A really excellently executed mild. Soft on the palate. Stained glass brown. Easy and straightforward, fruity ale tones and silky malt tones. Minimal delicate hop balance. Goes down easy as it should. TheEnemy (564) - Chicago, USA - FEB 20, 2009

Pours a dark copper, almost chestnut color with slight off-white head that settles down to a ring around the rim that leaves bits of lace here and there. Aroma shows a slight sour-grain with some dry-grain and modest hops. Flavor pretty much follows suit with a little more emphasis on the dry-grain part. It’s as if this beer doesn’t know whether to be a standard English pale or a brown ale so it decides to split the difference. Finishes with a medium-thick palate, certainly thicker than I’ve come to expect from English-style pub ales. Not my favorite but I’d probably order another if I saw it as a guest tap somewhere.
On draught at the brewpub in Marshfield, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-hazy caramel amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a white ring and some film. Light nose aroma of caramel malt, brown sugar, cotton candy, and some hollow dry fuggles bitterness. Taste is semi-sweet, very light carbonation with caramel malt and some brown sugar. Finish has a mild bitterness with a sweet caramel aftertaste. Pretty much the same recipe and flavor as the previous owners.
