3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2013 Color was a nice amber color with about one and a half fingers of nice creamy white head in the glass from a can. Aroma was a perfect balance of malt and hops and some nuttiness in the middle. The taste had some sweet malt up front followed by caramel nuttiness. Had a bitter bite on the back end, not sure if this is hop bitterness or an off flavor. A solid beer overall and sessionable.
Sampled from the tap at the Rigby. Pours a clear amber with an off white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has grass and straw with some bread underlying. Flavor is similar with a combination of grass, hay and straw. jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Keg @ The Rigby, Madison. Amber pour with a small head. Aroma of toasted grain. Light caramel. Soft leafiness. Balanced flavor. Lightly sweet toffee with a grassy finish. Smooth and supple. Very light bitterness. phranq (213) - - NOV 29, 2016
Cheap smelling. Lots of head, maybe frozen at the pour? Good taste though and palate. Sweet ballanced and crisp. akoeninger (755) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2016
On tap at Hopcat. Golden amber, faint aroma of toasted malt. Seems like a maltier vwrsion of a pbr to me. Grassy hops, toasted malt, slightly burnt with a slight caramel sweetness. Finishes dry muzzlehatch (4959) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2016
Draught pint at Lucy’s #7 in Beloit, WI, October 24th. Darkish amber-bronze body with a thinnish but fully lasting white head...very faint toasted malt aroma, bit of smokiness and sugar, what I can detect is pleasant enough but it never really blooms...lightly sweet on the tongue, toasty/burnt character shows up quickly and dominates throughout...dry, bitter, burnt finish that lasts and lasts...full-bodied and rather lightly carbonated. The tap list was rather unexciting on this visit, so I picked this because I don’t believe I’ve had anything from this brewery yet - while I didn’t love it, it’s certainly a bit more interesting than many beers in this style and I look forward to trying some other, potentially more exciting products from these guys.

Aroma is toasted/earthy malts, very light citrus and nutty/slightly musty notes. The flavor is nutty malts, citrus/fruit, earthy/slightly dirty and a tart/very lightly bitter finish. arkurzynski (2427) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 19, 2016
Reddish amber. Nose of sugary toasted malt and light hops. Flavor is biscuit and toasted nut with some grassy hops. A mildly off-putting flavor combo. Travlr (24691) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 22, 2015

473ml can. Amber gold pour. Interesting beer fitting in it’s own style category, amber, sweet, bit watery, hoppy, interesting. JonnyMadison (87) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 15, 2015
Flight at HopCat in Madison. An average amber with a nutty flavor and some hoppy bitterness. Nothing remarkable but was always consistent and rewarding.
