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!

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.

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...
