Pours a dark amber with a sizeable head. Aroma of malt. Pretty good balance between malt and hops with a touch of spice at the end. A decent offering.

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.

Originally reviewed: 10/22/09. Poured into my pint glass. Pours a slightly murky copper color with a thin off-white head on top. Dissipates quickly leaving little lace in its wake. Smells of toffee, the woods, and big fresh sourdough bread. The body is full and hearty. Nice mellow crispness to this due to a moderate amount of carbonation. Very mellow bready flavor with a touch of honey on the finish. Bitterness is low on this one. Slight sweet quality to it. I really like the aftertaste. Like I just ate some fresh-buttered dark bread. With the low ABV, I could drink a few of these. Good beer.

Smooth beer. In between their pale ale and IPA. Light-medium body with a hop foundation but nothing strong.

On tap at Miller Park. Plastic cup, blah. Brew City, watching the Brew Crew, and there are few craft choices in the park? Sweet red malts. Decent.
