I remember drinking this stuff when I first went to Breckenridge on one of our college ski trips. This one came from Sendiks in Whitefish Bay in 22oz bomber for $1.99

This is just a simple, easy drinking, not bad, not great, malty beer from a great little brewery. The body is a deep amber color with big red undertones. The head is pretty minimal and turns to a slightly noticeable film. The nose is almost all malt. Big hits of vienna and crystal malts are dominant. Definitely not a bad thing, but not necessarily my favorite. Very faint hops found anywhere. The taste is smooth, malty and slightly metallic on the swallow. There is almost a touch or rye spiciness on the swallow. The bittering hops come through a bit and add a layer of coarse dryness. Body is moderately full, but easy drinking. In my opinion, this is nothing more than an average amber ale the is hardly memorable. It is however, one of those beers, that if enjoyed in the right setting and environment (i.e. college ski trip), can make for a few smiles and happy times.
