On tap. Pours orange with a white head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is of hops, malt, grain, citrus, and spice. Taste is of malt, grain, and spice. Has a nice hop and citrus taste underneath. Mouthfeel is medium, and the finish is very crisp yet dry. I could definitely drink the hell out of this beer. Very tasty. Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2009
12oz bottle 3/18/09 (Sam’s Wine & Spirits-Downers Grove)-Pours a medium golden body with a small white covering for a head. Aroma of hops, malt, and caramel. Taste of the same with a nice roasted malt flavor coming in the middle and lasting through the end. This medium bodied brew is a nicely balanced beer with great flavors. Nice job.

Picked up at Binny’s Glen Ellyn. Light orange pour with small white head. Caramelly aroma, with german hops and some sweet malt. Flavor is crisp and slightly caramelly. Nice finish of bitter hops. Dug this brew and am glad for more chicago brews.

12 oz. bottle. Nice first effort by a new Chicago brewer. Bright Vienna malt smell in the pour, matching beer color, thin layer of bubbles. Dials back the hops to let some crunchy, toasty malts to the foreground. Fills me up pretty well. A bit of German hop pepper builds up on my soft palate. Worth presenting and serving as a good new Chicago beer, while all the sports and tourist venues keep spewing Miller-Bud. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2009
Found this one bottled at Binny’s in St. Charles. Hazy medium brown pour with a lacy, thin white head, light malty, apple and a touch of rosy hops in the nose, nice complex malt character, orange, pineapple, slightly spicy, with a fine, dry finish. This was a nice brew! monkeychugg55 (1090) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Clear copper with a small white head that lasts a while. Slighly bready aroma, with sweet toasted malt and some mellow floral hops. Nice crisp flavor with more citrus on the finish than the aroma had suggested. Pretty refrezhin. Leighton (21255) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016
Bottle at Ben and Alida’s wedding - Chicago. Pours clear, deep copper-gold with a white cream topping. Caramel and bready malts in the nose. Medium sweet flavor with notes of cereal, rich bread, light berries. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sugary finish with some toasted grains, caramel and light, leafy hops. Pretty decent amber lager. Scipio (1081) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2017
Pours a clear amber with a medium, bubbly white head. Malty aroma consists of caramel, nuts, bread, and earthy malts. It isn’t very potent though. The taste is bitter. Its exactly like the nose, only stronger. Caramel and earthy malts come through on top, and they are pretty heavy. Bread, nuts, and floral hints are found underneath. Caramel aftertaste. Medium in body, smooth in texture, and average in carbonation. Very easy to drink. As this one advertises, it feels like it will go well with just about any food pairing since nothing is too extreme here. Enjoyable.
