3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
No bar code on the bottle. A clandestine beer? Whate’er...Nice pour, a deep amber body with a dense, sustained ecru head. It has a really fresh white-bread-topped-with-gooey-caramel aroma that I (a devout hop-head) can enjoy. Just a hint of florals in there. The flavor is a subdued version of the aroma, tasty, but a tad too light. No hops in taste or bitterness. The finish is rather abrupt. Not a bad brew, but the intensity of the flavor was less than what the aroma had promised.

From World Market maybe? I reckon this was decent stuff. Caramelly and malty, a little chewier than some of the German varieties. Serving: Bottle

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark copper with minimal head. Aroma of light herbal hops, a little caramel and some strong vinegar. Taste is light sweet. Caramel and toffee with a little herbal hops. Full nodied with a surprisingly thick texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber-orange body with a thin white head. Sweet, malty aroma with notes of cereal, sugar, and fruit coming through. The palate is relatively light and smooth. An easy drinking brew. The flavor, like the aroma, is sweet. Malt, biscuit, sugar, and a fruity sweetness dominate. There’s is really no bitterness at all. Tasty brew, but I don’t think I’d have more than two in a row.

Found this in a bottle at Chicago Midway. A rich malty nose is biscuits. Those are tasted, too. This is a full bodied lager that is copper in hue with a beige head. Soft fruit is tasted and hops are very light. A bit of bitterness is felt deep in the throat. Flavor fades a bit and although it is nice things are never big. This was a nice surprise.
