COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweet, caramel aroma. Clean, crisp taste, and an almost dry aftertaste. Interesting and complex. Very flavorful with strong malt presence.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 25, 2002
Pours a deep garnet, the head is generous and beige, the lace is decent. Nose is light toasted grains, a hint of caramel. The start is sweet, the top is light, the finish is dry, lightly carbonated, the hops are light, but a fair to middlin beer at any rate. Ranks #759 on my master beer list.

JPDIPSO (5587) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 3, 2002
Dark amber color with a light moderate head. Toast and toffee malt flavors. malt dominates with a slight spicy hops flavor and finish. Nicely balanced and drinkable.

I think the commercial description is pretty accurate. Deep copper color. Definate sweetness. Smooth finish. Not a huge fan though. Something just didn’t work for me.

Sweet aroma, beautiful chestnut color, very little head, sweet hoppiness with lite carbonation and dry finish. Excellent brew.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2002
The malt here, aroma and taste, is handled beautifully. I don’t find it as crisp as others here, but not cloying either. Definite hints of caramel/toffee and some faint spiciness. Hop tinges, almost imperceptibly weakly, at the finish. Very very drinkable.

MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2002
This beer is interesting. It has a wet palate, but a dry aftertaste. I like the caramel flavor which is also very noticeable in the aroma.

Much sweeter than expected. Needs a better balance of hops.

very complex taste, smooth and very malty. The hints of spices in this one are very interesting indeed, a good surprise to your tastebuds!!!
