COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A plethora of Munich malt drives this beer forward, with a subtle nutty flavor and an easy, dry finish. Prost!

Skyview (6115) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2012
On draught at the brewery taproom in Excelsior, Minnesota. Pours a clear brownish copper colored brew with an average sized off-white head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, a hint of floral hops, some light chocolate and a touch of white raisin. Taste is full bodied, and then some. Lots of sweet caramel malt, a hint of toffee, some light chocolate and a touch of cream tartar. Finish is semi-sweet, low bitterness but plenty of sweet caramel malt and a touch of sweet white chocolate. The clear copper colored body can be deceiving at first, thinking it may be a light brown ale but it really has some extra body as Excelsior brewmaster continues to make sure there is plenty of barley malt in the brewkettle. Best described as a hybrid of doppelbock and brown ale. Excellent seasonal release to compliment the Minnesota autumn weather.

A plethora? Hardly. Aroma wasn't too bad Coco dry roasted malt that was pleasant. But that was the best part of the beer. Body was a little thin. Flavor was on the sweet side with cocoa and a little malt. A forgettable beer.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear ruby brown color with a small white head. A light toast and toffee nose. Dark berries, toffee, caramel, toast. Very sweet. Quite nice. Big old Munich purple flavors. Solid.

Bottle. Pours a near blear brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of bread and earthy grain with a bit of sweetness underlying. Flavor has a bit more sweet grain with bread and a hint of toffee underlying.

Meh... Just your run of the mill, average brown ale. Taste what OK (what did you expect?). Not a big fan over the dry finish.

Pour on tap at Republic Calhoun, hazy dark red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, earth, slight caramel, toffee into a bit of yeast, slight bread into a bit of toast. Taste was a mix of toast, bread, caramel into a bit of spice, grass, slight toffee, finishing fairly sweet, slightly spicy.

Nose is sweet malt. Pours dark with a small head. Taste is sweet earthiness. Average brown
