Actually tasted this one right in Cross Plains outside the brewery. It was a pale gold lager with a small head on it. Wasn't great and wasn't bad just a decent local brew.

Carmel, malt aroma. Copper with thin head. Full body, malty, with nut notes. Smooth with mild bitter finish.

I was both suprised and impressed with this brew. It suprised me because I didn’t imagine the beer to be so full flavored, and it impressed me because it was a nicer tasting lager then imagined. Dark golden colour, full fluffy white head. Fruity aroma with pleasent biscuity malts on the palate and very rich taste.

Bottle. Clear golden body. Fizzy, white head, rapidly diminishing. Sweet aroma of toasted grain, corn syrup, biscuit, brown sugar. Hint of caramel. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture turning slightly syrupy. Fizzy carbonation. Slight taste of corn and bready malts. Nice, though muted, bitterness in the finish. Above average pale lager.

Dark straw color with a white bubbly head. Very light pale malt aroma with a hint of spicy hops, but then again very light. Flavors of light sweet malt. Fairly dry finish. A somewhat typical lager.

Mother in law bought this one for me. Roasted malt and grain aroma. Golden body with white head. Good carbination bubble action in pint glass along with a mix of barley and a little lemon zest. Not bad refreshing brew after work.

Oh, I don't know...this wasn't bad but it sure didn't tickle my fancy either. Not sure what I expected but what I got was light--better flavor overall than MGD but pretty mild stuff. Maybe that's the way it's supposed to be? Poured a light gold color with a white, quickly diminishing head. Not a whole lot of aroma. No real standout flavors but nothing offensive, either. Good on a hot day?

Pours a nice rocky head...surprisingly enough. Head recovers to thin & white, but persists and left some faint lacing. Aroma of my grandmas basement. Medium to full yellow. Taste is hard to pin down. Maybe hay or weeds. Musty. Not really bad, but interesting in a Blatz kinda way, but with more body. I like the brewery, and this beer is one to drink for history if not for taste.

[Bottle] Pours a light brown color with a lot of beige head. Aroma is heavy on grain. The taste is grassy and sweet, with light caramel, fruit and corn notes. A crisp floral quality comes out in the finish. Average carbonation, and above average mouthfeel for the style. I actually thought this was a decent, easy drinking beer.
