It is probably because this is my favorite style of beer and my favorite brewery, but this is my favorite beer I have ever had. It really is nothing fancy but works for me. To me its a a pretty flat beer with caramel and strong toasted flavors being the leaders. If you love this style definitely give this one a shot.

Very nice. Poured a copper color, maybe a medium tan color. Good head. A bit off white. Nose strong of caramel, biscuit and hops. Sweet with a long finish. Rich caramel, sugar, malt, grain, rye flavors. Nice pick up for pumpkin carving.

demitriustown (1184) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAY 8, 2010
12 oz bottle: Aroma is caramel roasted malts, a bit of butterscotch, grainy, and no real discernible hop characteristic. ( maybe slightly in the background) Appearance is a clear amber with a medium slightly beige head that diminishes into a small frothy film. Taste is a nice mix. The roasty caramel malt, a bit nutty, the hops are more present in the taste. Grassy german hops, coats the tongue. Palate is medium carbonation, somewhat heavy on the tongue, and an aftertaste of grassy tones with a hint of the malt. I think this held up pretty well. Pretty darn good too. Cheers!

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2010
Bottle… Clear, dirty orange lager with a large, fluffy, off-white head. Good, bubbly, wispy retention. Nutty, malty aroma – buttery caramel, toffee and almonds. Nearly medium-bodied with a lightly oily mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. Well-balanced for a Marzen with good Vienna malt flavor. Lingering, delicately sweet finish. Kudos to dmschefke floating this brew my way!

Bottle from Smith’s. Deep burgundy brownish pour with roasty malt nose, plus some hoppy brown sugar. Tastes malty, with backup hops and some brown sugar. Decent palate but average overall.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 9, 2009
Mildly hazed amber with a thin tan quickly fading topper with light lacing. Aroma of mild skunk, noble hops and Munich malt. Thin bodied and tasting of toffee, toasted malt perhaps mildly burnt and very mild hops. Meh.

Bottle ( 12oz ). Shared with blankboy and garthicus. Clear copper pour, very large fluffy lasting off-white head (4-). Dry, slightly sour aroma - lightly fruity and midly floral-bitter - taste follows, a little less sour. Light, mildly acidic mouthfeel, solid carbonation, and a dry finish. Ehhh.
