Bottled 03/06/15:

Pours caramel-colored, as seen through the clear bottle. A foamy white head hangs around for most of the drink, leaving a bit of lacing.

The smell is of slightly toasted grain.

The taste is sweet-leaning - some balancing taste and a subtle hop touch. Sweetened tea-like finish.

It is pretty watery and thin.

A rather bland brew, but easy enough to drink. A basic sweet-leaning amber lager.

Classic MN beer. Glad to see a MN brewery picked it up. Good slightly sweet flavor. Nice amber color. Easy beer to bring to a party for all to enjoy without discussing the flavor notes etc.

Fairly bland, just a touch of sweetness. The "dark" beer for people want to drink quantity. I'd rather stick with Premium
