12oz bottle. Looks light. Aroma of toasted and caramel malts with a little floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer for the style.

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.

Pour on tap, clear orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought dough, caramel, bread, some grass, spice, touch of herbal notes into a hint of yeasty spice, some earthy tones. Taste is a mix of dough, slight watery bread, hints of caramel into some grass, spice, finishing fairly clean, slight hint of sweetness.

Cloudy orange with a white head. Estery malt aroma. Taste is medium caramel malt, slightly nutty, with light bitter hops and a watery finish. Oily texture.

Toasted malt, light bready sweetness, low hop aroma and flavor. Light copper , very clear white head that disappears quick. Thin for style. Finish flat

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.

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

Aurelius (4603) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Clumsy label, clear medium tea-brown, quickly dissipating oatmeal colored head. Grainy-sweet malty aroma with notes of molasses. Sweet, low bittering, husky, dark syrup tones. Medium heavy body. Grainy finish. ABC Liquors, Betton.

Jabah (178) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2015
About average for the style. Not as smooth and creamy textured as I prefer. Light brown appearance with flavors and aromas mostly of caramel malt and mild hops. First sample from this brewery, not quite sold yet.
