On draught at the brewpub in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Pours a clear coppery amber brew with a creamy off-white head that has good retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, some fruity character with scents of apple, pear and some flowery hops. Taste is lightly carbonated, medium bodied with a smooth caramel malt and mild bitter flavor. Finish is slightly bitter with a multi-grain malt aftertaste that quickly disappears. thornecb (5947) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Pours deep amber into a shaker. Off-white head quickly recedes to hug rim. Caramel aromas. Bread, caramel, toffee and nuts from front to back. Dry mild resin finish. cheap (5893) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2012
From a pounder bottle. Nice big brown clear pour with a tad of orange red. Smell is a bit cloying but yes, some hops poke thru to the olfactory. Taste is about the same but there is this mild tartness in there that gives it a bit of a farmy effect,not much tho. Some very mild barely detectable carbonation. Ropey and leathery at times, could be a little more well behaved. Will not appeal to a lager lover. Slight sweet medicinal finish. Sometimes I thought I was sipping an ipa. There, you have it. tmoreau (4420) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2009
Enjoyed during a closed door tasting session in Green Bay with the brewer, Joe Karls. Poured a deep copper/amber with a modest, white, bubbly foam head and light streaks of lacing. The aroma offered some light esters, a little graininess, smooth malt and a touch of caramel. The flavor continued these adding some malt sweetness and subtle hop bitterness. A medium bodied beer that finished pleasantly dry. A solid and long standing offering from Hinterland. patrick767 (4063) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 21, 2012
bottle - Pours dark amber-brown with an off white head. It has a toasted caramel malt aroma. The flavor is of rich toasted caramel malt with a solid, bitter balance. It’s medium bodied and finishes with some good bitterness.

Bottle. Amber with a thin head. Aroma of grape, caramel and bread. Flavour has toasted notes some chocolate and fruit. Dry bitter palate. bartlebier (4013) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2014
(retrieved from Midwest notes 08/2013 - Escanaba/MI. PT bottle from Ridgeview Liquor, Green Bay.) Fairly classic, almost too clean amber ale with mainly toasted malts and grains in the nose and caramel and gentle floral hops in taste, muddled by more cardboard edge than smoke. Could have done with a smaller bottle, as an amber ale is not what I’d reach for to quench my thirst. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 21, 2010
Reddish copper with a medium off-white head. Aroma of heavy caramel, dark fruits, light grassy hops and a touch of chocolate. Taste is very sweet and grainy. Caramel and dark fruits prevail with a smattering of citrus and the aforementioned grains. Just a shade of bitterness. Overall, not to bad, a bit maltier than I had expected, but has more character than most ambers on the market. puboflyons (3438) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 29, 2011
From the one pint olive-brown colored bottle. No matter how aggressive the pour I can’t get a lot of head but it does have a handsome looking , albeit cloudy, reddish-brown tone. The aroma starts out with sweet malts but there is also a notable floral hoppy character to it. In the end it leans more toward a hoppy scent. The body is thin to moderate. The taste brings out the beer’s bitter qualities more than anything else with a fresh, hoppy finish. This is something I’d have more than once. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2009
