On tap at East side Dane, pours a light clear brown with a thin soapy white head, the aroma is of slight malt and caramel, the flavor is of very light malt and a subtle sweetness of caramel, not really impressed by this one overall, too bland and boring for my liking. nuplastikk (6289) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 24, 2012
On tap at downtown location. Filtered amber-tan. Steady, lacy head. Medium bodied, sweet mellow malty tones. Soapy hop bitterness balances the one-dimensional malt tones. Creamy caramel finish. Tolerable, but amateurish and unimpressive. stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2011
On tap at downtown location. Minimal aroma. Watery, nuttiness, some malt elements. Pretty weak. tmoreau (4369) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Shaker served at Doty St. with a fairly clear, brown color, modest, light tan foam to the head, and faint streaks and spots of lacing. The aroma was lightly toasted, almost a little roasted, nutty, with maybe some cocoa. The flavor added some smooth malt, and average bitterness. Light and fairly balanced notes across the board. Tasty. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2010
[Tap] Sampled back in mid-December. Pours a hazy brown color without much head. Aroma of hazelnut and caramel. Taste is of light chocolate, brown sugar and some modest hopping towards the end. Doesn’t offer a whole lot taste-wise, but decent for an organic brew.

On tap last night at the Dane: Poured a dark mahogany colour with a large tan head. Aroma was instantly nutty- so clean, so clear to my nose, so-NATURAL ! Taste was decent, light and creamy with nutty and toffee notes. A little bit of coffee perhaps. Otherwise an average beer from the GD." kseecs16 (1216) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Draught. Appears clear amber with a thin filmy off-white head that leaves a thick coat of lacing. Dry nutty aroma
Flavor is full, roasty, nutty with a light sweet toffee undercurrent
Light bodied with a dry bitter finish. JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - NOV 16, 2009
Oxidized copper color with a moderate light beige head. Aromas of caramel, toasted malt and nuts, and a dark fruit and doughy backdrop. Beernuts come to mind with flavors of caramel and picnic peanuts. Bits of earthy hops in the late middle to finish. Touches of roasted malt in the finish as well. Standard brown ale. noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 16, 2009
Clear, dark amber pour, modest beige head, slight lacing. Lightly caramelized malt aroma, quite doughy. Flavor is mostly a sweet chocolate malt, with just a bit of a bitter resinous edge to it. Medium bodyied, very drinkable. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 14, 2009
