Picked up a growler on the way to the north shore, was looking forward to a good hoppy beer for with a dinner of hot dogs over an open fire.

Instead I got an interesting slightly hopped malty as hell ale. Not at all what I was expecting, tasted much more like a brown ale than anything else. I actually enjoyed it, and am considering getting a growler refill the next time I head up that way, but it wasn't a pale ale. Poured a dark reddish color, smell was more malty than anything, very little in the way of hops. Taste was again very light on hops, very heavy on malts. Mouthfeel was actually pretty good, a bit thicker than i expect from a pale ale.

Overall I did enjoy the beer, but it was way out of style. I would love to try their porter later this year though if the timing works out.

First beer I've had from them. Poured from the growler, it produced a 1 finger, off-white head. The beer color is a translucent, medium mahogany.

The aroma is of malt, caramel, bread, and a light pine hop note.

The taste was very good. Malt forward, light caramel sweetness, a touch of a wood-like flavor, and a slight hop bitterness on the end. Medium bodied, and carbonation.

Good beer!

This is a nice addition to the Minnesota beer scene. Aroma carries some nice hop notes but the flavor is very malt forward....caramel big time....decent body to this but a nice drinker anyhow....with all the hop forward beers these days this is a nice change...

I agree with #deadbody. This beer is not a Pale Ale. The brewery describes it as a Strong Ale.

It poured a dark, copper-amber color with a frothy, off-white head. The aromas are very malt-forward. Plenty of sweet, caramel malt aromas along with hints of toffee.

The body was medium-full. It coated the tongue nicely. Leaving great malt flavors on the palate.

Plenty of malt flavors. There is very little hop flavor in this ale. Any hops added is merely for balancing the malts. Caramel malts were most prominent, along with some toffee and bready malts. The finish was lightly dry, but not too dry.
