backdaft (286) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 5, 2012
12 oz. Bottle - Pours a medium copper color with a creamy light head. Flavor is on the sweet malty side with a hint of caramel. Not bad, but nothing special.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2012 Bottle to glass. Nice Amber pour with a white head. Aroma is sweet with a little bit of caramel. Not too good, not too bad. Pretty drinkable though

reggiedunlop (3724) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Pours a hazy amber/ruby color with a medium tan head...nice lacing. Aroma is very malty...light fruitiness, doughy, a bit wheaty, and some faint leafy hop notes. Flavor follows suit but is more leafy and less doughy...tastes like mildly hoppy tea...mild toasted malt and a hint of caramel. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and the finish is earthy and mapley...like dry leaves.

BVery (10485) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Bottle. Orange amber pour with a small amount of sediment - huge light cream colored head that held shape for several minutes. Mild aroma of sweet caramel. Medium palate. Taste is smooth caramel malt, just a touch of sweetness - very drinkable. Taste isn’t quite as good as it warms, however, very nice representation of the style.

Tmoney99 (14455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2011
Tap sample. Poured hazy brown color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Average drinkable brew.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - APR 16, 2011
Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a huge tan head. Nose is of malt and caramel. Very thick and creamy on the palate. The taste is of malt, caramel, spices and well balanced dry hopping on the finish. An excellent beer that pairs well with Sheboygan brats and onions.

crossovert (12874) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
12 oz bottle. It pours a hazy reddish brown with a thick, foamy slightly off-white head. The nose is pretty simple, some raisiny fruits, caramel, and perhaps some alcohol. The flavor doesn’t go to far, there is a thick walnuttines and caramel flavor, also some alcoholic twang. It is okay, but nothing exciting really.

12 oz. Bottle. Poured an amberish color with a medium to light head. Classic malty amber. Decent brew but nothing crazy.
