Draft. Very malt oriented. Loads of toffee and caramel with some roasty bread. A slight hint of some light hops. Pretty darn good. OscarFalls (62) - excelsior, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2012
I used this beer when I brined a pork butt with my buddy Zach Shank. I really haven't tried it.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear amber with an average white head. Aroma of malt, grain, and caramel. Taste is caramel malt, grain, bread, and a hint of grass. Average. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Poured into a pint glass.
2.5 A: Faintly hazed medium orange color. Fizzy head fell as quickly as it formed.
3.5 S: Caramel and toastiness are the main attractions here. Pleasant neutral malt sweetness to round this out.
3.5 T: Again caramel and toast. Neutral sweetness. Not a lot of hops, but enough to balance the brew well.
3.5 M: Lighter medium to medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Clean and crisp with a light creaminess.
3.5 D: For some reason I thought this beer would suck ass (just based on the label and twist off bottle), but it turned out to be a solid, quite drinkable brew.

Bottle. Pale amber. "Pure malt" that smells like adjunct and grassy hops. Flavor is initially a bit of sweet caramel malt and, again, an adjunct corn taste that fades to an herbal/earthen hop bitterness, almost woody. Relatively dry, bitter finish.

Shocked it isn’t seen as better by more people. On tap, this is, to quote the late John Denver, "almost heaven." BVery (11461) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Bottle. Clear gold-orange pour with a smaller white head. Nose is baked bread and a touch of caramel. Moderate palate - fine for the style. Taste is bread and a bit of caramel sweetness. Easy drinker. Not too bad. Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 3, 2012
12oz bottle. Rating #47. Clear amber pour with a white head. Sweet caramel malt aroma. Flavor is similar, sweet caramel malts. Nothing special. (2300) mrjaxson (630) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Mild aroma of being in a bakery at bread-making time. It’s possible to coax a bit of head on the pour, but nothing significant. Light carbonation and a soft gold color. Taste is an easy sweetness and the finish is dry. Could easily consume a few of these. dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Bottle pours deep amber, almost copper, with an off-white head. Aroma is definitely malt driven as the name would suggest, showing toffee/biscuit as well as some earthy/grassy hops. Flavor is lightly toasted and bready with some muted grass/flower notes that appear on the backend. Overall body is moderate and finishes with light bitterness.
