Not a bad beer, for a bottled beer. It woulld probably rate higher had I not just come from Onopa Brewery and sampled some incredible beers, but this is still good. jde123 (775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 20, 2004
Wow, a great beer from Iowa! Pours a rich amber color with a foamy lasting head. Goes down well, great flavor! valpoaj (744) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 28, 2006
Very easy drinking lager with a mahogany body and quickly dissolving head. Sweet flavor leaves very little on the palate, albeit some brown sugary aftertaste. For those folks that feel that the only good beers are those that are very complex or hoppy, avoid this at all costs...for those who are looking for an easy drinking brew that has a pretty good flavor, go take a drive through Iowa and pick yourself up a sixer rosskyle (721) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2017
Served on tap at Des Moines Embassy Suites. Clear amber color with a white head. Malt grain aroma. Not much complexity. Basic malt amber.

Pours amber with a tan head. Has a macrobrew aroma, I don’t know how else to describe it. This beer is easy to drink, but not much out there. Some light caramel malt flavor. Not much in the way of hop aroma. This may be a good transitional beer, but not not much to crave here.

Pours a darkish amber with a faint white head. Aroma is of malts and light roasted nuts. Flavor is candied malts, light roast, and some caramel. Mild bitter in the finish. Pretty decent overall. bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Pours an orange-amber with a meidum off-white head. Aroma is malty with hints of hops. Flavor is also malty with hints of fruit, sugar, grains, nuts, and some hops. Light body with medium carbonation. Decent. camborne (656) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Huge carbonation in the bottle I had. Bread nose. Light toasted malt and more bread notes. Bubbly carbonation. belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - FEB 1, 2002
Malty nose and malty flavor. A nice refreshing amber lager. Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - APR 2, 2012
pours a dark copper with no head. Sweet malt aroma and hints of biscuit. Nicely carbonated, lots of biscuit and malt flavor all the way. Solid beer.
