opaque copper color. no head. light aroma of lager yeast. dry grain flavor, some taste of nuts and wood. very dry finish. Skyview (6056) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2008
On draught during the ABR ’08 in Minneapolis, MN. Pours a clear golden pale orange brew with an average off-white head that has some nice retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt, a touch of vanilla and roasted nuts. Taste is medium bodied, malty character of caramel, toffee, some roasted nuts and grassy hops. Finish is semi-dry, crisp, with a light caramel and toffee aftertaste that quickly disappears. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Draft @ Brewpub: Copper, no head or lacing. Nose of ripe canal water and malt, light caramel, some diacetyl. Dry mouthfeel but a sweet flavor, odd. Not that good. badgerben (5178) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2005
Dark gold color with a thin head. Slight wheat aroma. A little hoppy with some barley. Not what I’d call a shining example, but inoffensive. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 1, 2009
On tap at the brewpub on 05/31/2009. Somewhat hazy amber body with a large rocky white head. Toasty malt and noble hop aroma. Sweet toasty malt flavor with some floral and noble hops. Medium light body with moderate carbonation.

Draft at the brewpub. Poured a clear light orange-golden color. The head was thin and white with decent retention and lacing. Pleasant aroma of caramel and subdued vanilla cake batter. Dry on the tongue with fresh cereal grain, noble hop, caramel, and light toffee flavors. Pretty tasty. ryanfolty (2553) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2015
August 14, 2015 - on tap at Herkimer. Orangish pour but hard to tell in dim lighting. Aroma and taste were malty and grainy. BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2009
