0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Infected, as were all their beers. Unservable to the public. They need to just give up brewing and work the restaurant side, which looked quite successful.
Draft. Golden amber pour. This one like all their beers is a bit bretty. Herbal, bitterness, pretty forgettable. Homer321 (5202) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Weird aroma up front. Sugary with a light funk. Hazy orange in color. Initally just a sweet malt character with a light floral hop profile. This might pass as the least infected so far. Just a very light tartness in the very back end. Of the three I have had so far this is most tolerable. anders37 (27226) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2010
Draft @ the brew pub. Pours a pale amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty caramel aroma. Sweetish fruity malty caramel flavor. Has a fruity malty caramel finish. Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Not sure what was going on with this one. Hazy yellow with a nice head, but that’s where any resemblance to a pale ale stopped. The aroma was apple cider and lemons, and the flavor was so tart, lemony, and full of apple that I must have had a bad pour or something. Tough to drink.

On tap at bewery. Another "like water" brew, mild and unimpressive. I’d pass. No hints of hoppiness at all. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2006
Had this one on draught in Geneva, Illinois. Dissappointing. Almost no hops taste or nose whatsoever. It WAS pale in color, however. I guess that counts for something. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2006

The most drinkable of the beers that I had at the brewpub - a slightly hazy brown with a good lacing head. Very mild in the nose and taste, a soft, sweet malt with traces of wheat and a light earthy hopping that lingers into the finish. Sessionable.

The most highly hopped of the six brews they currently have on tap here. It has a slightly thin malt caramel malt base and some floral-type hopping. Somewhat thin bodied and not very adventuresome in flavor. The brewer has told me that he is aiming for beers that can be thought of as transitional beers for the macro beer junkies. I’d like to see some fuller flavors and robust brews. But better than half of all beer sold at this venue are there own product, and so somebody must be doing something right, at least commercially.
