I had this on tap at the Sportsman Lodge near Baudette.

Served in a standard pint, the beer is nice amber with red highlights. There is an off-white head and lacing.

Beer has a smell of lightly toasted malts. Not a ton of aroma, but what there is, is nice.

Lightly roasted malts lead the taste. There is a hint of red apple and just a whisper of hops. Bready with crackers. No off or odd tastes. Everything hangs well together.

Decent mouth to style. It’s an easy beer to pair with food. I had three with the walleyes we caught that day.

One of those beers where the total is greater than the sum of the parts (hence the higher overall rating)
