The Floppin Crappie is a nice sessionable beer. The beer poured a nice amber with thin white head that is lacing nicely. There is not much scent to this beer....subtle hints of sweet malt...that is about it. The taste is a very even balanced beer....the malt provides a sweet back drop and there is enough bittering hops to balance the sweetness to make it very pleasant. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a decent beer.

A wonderfully delicious treat that may make you flop like a crappie after your first 6pack. A delightful change to your regular beer or a viable option if you are looking for a new daily drinker. Don't be surprised if you are throwing POWs after just a couple. Definitely a thumbs up.

Picked up a single at Woodmans in Wisconsin. Poured into a pint glass.
Amber colored with active bubbles. Fluffy thick white foam, like snow banks. Light sweet malt nose. Nutty and bready. Light toffee malt taste, evolving hop that never takes hold. Touch sweet. Caramel close. Light carbonation, considering the bubbles. Not bad.

Reviewed from session notes.
A. Clear light brown in color with another flash/fizzle head and no lacing.
S,T. Light toasted bready malts through and through. Stays mildly sweet just like eating handfuls of malt for a crunchy snack. Garnish levels of yeast spice and grassy hopping do exist but are difficult to pick out of the mix until the glass warms up some.
M. Still seems somewhat thin but that's actually appropriate for the style this time. And for once the carbonation is actually adequate on the palate, despite the disappointing head.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #57 (October 2011):
LOOK: Dark rusty amber
SMELL: Fresh toasted grain, buckwheat honey, yeast twang, woody hops
TASTE: Malty, toasty, grainy, bready, clean, light hop bitterness, spice, yeast, peppery
A very malt-forward brew—a whole lot going on here, with a very complex layered character that reveals something new sip after sip as it warms up. sometimes subtle beers can bring more to the table, even at a lower abv. That said, it is, is, without a doubt, sessionable.

Poured from the bottle into a shaker pint glass. Bottle was given to me by beer club member Toms on his journey to Northern Wisconsin.
Pours thick and brown with some off yellow head that takes its time to go away. Unfortunately it was in the back of the fridge and was slightly frozen. I warmed the bottle with hot water but I think I may have put off the flavor doing it this way.
The smell was unimpressive and the taste was grainy with hints of pleasant flavors that never seemed to stand out. I waited throughout the drink to be turned on but it never happened.
I like the idea of their beer-all of them are northwoodsy (like Central Waters)- but I understand the brewery is actually a brewpub with not a lot of outside distribution. Maybe if I went to the restaurant there or maybe if I tried others I could get a better appraisal.
