Don't be intimidated by the rich walnut color. This beer is really not heavy at all. It is very smooth with no bitterness, and has a real warming, nut-like flavor and aroma. Brewed to match a traditional English mild, it has carbonation levels that are more American. Our "flagship" brew, it's a very social drink and goes great with all types of food.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2012
Pours a reddish amber with a small light tan head. Nose is malt with a hint of sweetness. Nice and creamy on the palate, the taste is nutty and malty with very little bitterness. A hint of sweetness and a nuance of hops on the finish. Pairs well with many food products but especially with nuts and pretzels.

Massive gusher from a well-chilled bottle. Of the remaining beer, good caramel notes, malt-forward, very smooth. Just wish more of the beer would have stayed in the bottle, rather than making me mop it up off the floor.

Smoothsippin (48) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Pours a dark amber with a big beige head. Bready and a bit boozy to the nose. Smooth mouth feel, a bit sweet then a slight bitterness on the swallow. Pleasant contrast with a lingering finish. Havent had it in a while. Its as good as I remember it. Recommended.

Sampled at great taste. Clear amber. Kind of bourbon looking. It is nutty and fruity. Clean and easy to drink. Earth. Just a little fruit.

Bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of caramel, fruitiness and light cocoa. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of caramel, light fruitiness and a hint of cocoa with a smooth lingering caramel finish.

Had it at The Pickled herring inside sven and olles in grand Marais, MN. I got it because it was on tap. It had a good brown color and went well with the pizza. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (12735) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014: Clear brownish-amber color with a medium thin foamy off-white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Roasted nuts and malt in the nose. Light body with flavors of roast malt, peanuts and slight hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Just average overall.

beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Pouring dark reddish, maybe light brown, amber. Very small wispy white head, minimally lasting. Aroma is malty, sweet. Caramel. Toffee. Bready. Fruity. Light body, perhaps a bit thin. Finish is fairly dry, nutty. OK, but unexciting. Easy drinking enough.

Aroma is malty, a little bitter, caramel, some slight fruit. Taste is a little too bitter for my liking but otherwise similar to the aroma and fairly nice
