This is one of my go-to beers when I'm spending time in Wisconsin. No surprises, just a consistently great tasting beer with an ABV that allows me to have a few.

Very good and refreshing beer. It has notes of citrus and goes down very smoothly. It has little to no aftertaste and is one of the best Wisconsin made beers and that is ranking it among some fierce competition.
