Medium orange colored body with a thick white head. The aroma is potatoes with some green bell peppers and a hin of caramel. The taste is light caramel with some light carrots. A nice subtle vienna lager. This could be a good session beer. Aurelius (5335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2003
Dry, musty lagery aroma. Dry malty flavor, lightly bittered and woody. A little astringent. Long pecan-bitter finish. Very solid medium body. Clipart label, twistoff cap. badgerben (5178) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2003
I'm not really a lager kind of guy, more porter and stout, but this one was okay. A little sweet, definite hops. Not too shabby. muzzlehatch (4959) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 4, 2007
12 ounce bottle from the Woodmans on Gammon Road, Madison WI (December 2006), served out of the fridge into a Unibroue glass. The big fluffy off-white head is huge-bubbled and fades very quickly atop the very clear dark amber body....excessively sweet, honey’d syrupy peaches batter you in the nose with very faint citric acidic notes showing up to no avail..... the body is awfully, awfully sweet as well, loads of caramel, butterscotch and vanilla which might be fun in a barley wine, but here they are not supported by enough of a malt base and there is virtually no hop presence....slick and syrupy all the way through; I suspect this was better before Point took it over. In any case, I find it barely drinkable now. thegreenrooster (4402) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Pour is a orange with a white head. Aroma is a bit of grainy malt with no hops present. Flavor is a toasted biscut with some lingering hops. Nothing to go out and find and not really in the horrible catagory but it does have some promise of being a good beer.

Copper in appearance. A bit of head and a few spots of lace. Nose is very malty and slightly dusty. Overly sweet, sticky and a bit flat. I must say I am not digging this, not in the least. CanIHave4Beers (4184) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - APR 11, 2011
This exceptionally nice looking beer pours a deep rust color with a big tight white head and lots of great lacing on the glass. The aroma is earthy, floral, and fairly soapy. It doesn’t smell terrible but it’s not the most inviting of aromas in a beer. The flavor reminds me a bit of the aroma, it’s got lots of floral bitterness and rosewater. The beer is astringent and lacking in much malt flavor or complexity. The beer isn’t very well balanced and leaves me wanting for the malty well crafted Amber Lagers of WI. The beer admittedly gains some mild malt flavor, gets fruitier, and a lot less astringent once it warms a bit, but it retains the messiness of the first sip a little too well.

I've rather liked some of the James Page brews, but this didn't please. Nothing special in appearance--bright, light copper/orange color with a loosely formed and quickly dissipating head. The aroma was enchanting--caramel and effervescent apple. Then the flavor was a mess--some nuttiness and caramel, but also metallic, oddly bitter, and ugly sweet. Although a bit flat, the palate had a nice butter edge to it. Still, this beer couldn't make it past the fact that when it was in my mouth, my tastebuds were in revolt.

12oz bottle 5/12/09 (Binny’s Plainfield)-Pours a light amber with a nice tight off white head. Aroma of roasted malt and caramel. Taste of the same. A decent tasting brew with nothing to write home about. beastiefan2k (3981) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - JUN 16, 2004
Got this on a trip to minnesota, the only place i have ever seen it. With choices of only buds and millers, this was the best there(except for guiness). It has a nice reddish color, good taste with little head. This is an average beer but better tthan the competition at this bar.
