UPDATED: DEC 10, 2003 Draft, at Northwoods. Yep, a solid “brown ale” color. Roasty and caramelly in taste, with a good complement of hops. Good, but not quite great.
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear copper amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is mild wit light caramel and a hint of sweet grains. Flavor is thin with sweet bread and a hint of caramel. kkleu357 (634) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 5, 2014

Had it on tap at Northwoods BrewPub in Eau Claire Wisconsin. What can I say, the score says it all. I will say it is hazy brown in color low hop aroma and slightly sweet.

Poured a very dark, reddish brown with a minimal beige head and like lacing. Aroma was of weak sweet malts. Taste was of roasted/burnt malts with a slight hop finish. Palate was OK. Overall, not a bad brown but I have had better. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 15, 2011
Bottle from Skyview, thanks! Clear chestnut with a thin tan head. Aroma is faint yet malty with nuts and light breadiness. Taste is meh with nuts, malt, toffee and malt. Thin bodied and par for their course. tmoreau (4296) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Shared 12 oz. bottle at a monthly geek tasting. Poured to a sampler with a ruby highlighted, dark brown color, modest off white/light tan head foam, and light, streaks & spots of lacing. The nose was a very light, uneventful aroma expression of the flavor, which was light nuttiness, and cloying sweetness of caramel, molasses, and toffee. Toasty malt, hop bitterness, and carbonation were soft, the body was fairly light, and the texture was watery. Nice potential in the variety of notes, but basically came off as an average, homebrew entry. BVery (10312) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2011
