It’s like celery and cantaloupe mixed together. Very unique tasting. A beer that beats to it’s own drum. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Has not much of a scent, nice amber color with a frothy white head. Has a nice malty taste that covers up the bitterness.

Draft, pours a medium amber. Taste is toasted malt balanced out with some earthy, woodsy hops and bitter finish. Overall not bad. arminjewell (9669) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 1, 2012
Pour on tap at Old Chicago, dark red pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of slight dark fruits, toffee and caramel with some spicy and grassy hops. Taste was a bit much on the hop and didn’t balance all too well, some slight grain and toast, grass and pine bitter a lot and cover most of the caramel and toffee notes. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2012
(Draught) Pours a clear golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of grass, earth, and caramel. Flavor of earth, grass, cracker, and light pine. RSRIZZO (1986) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2012
On tap at Old Chicago Colorado Springs. Color is a deep amber with very low carbonation and a thick off white head. Aroma is very faint, I only get a trace of malt. It has a medium body that goes down with a light smooth mouth feel. Flavor has a bit of toffee, a touch of hop spice and then a bold bitterness. Overall its a nice easy drinking brew but there’s just not much to it.
