Sampled at the brewpub, this is rumored to be a 2001 GABF medal winner. The pour was of a deep amber, very little head topped off a very lightly carbonated beer. The nose was sweet and malty, but not big enough for style, nice malt intro to flavor which carried through the beer. Definately on the lighter side of the spectrum. Finish is sweet, short but sweet.

*Review from notes*
This beer was poured while eating at the Fox River Brewery. The brew had a dark amber color, slightly transparent, with a 1/2 white head with minimal lacing. There is a nice bitter hop smell with hints of caramel and dark malts. There is a medium body with almost no carbonation. This brew could use some more carbonation to open up the flavors that are hidden. There is a slight burnt sugar flavor to this beer. It is ok, but have had better.
