UPDATED: DEC 18, 2009 Aroma is toasty and rather bready. Pours out a burn orange with almost no head. A grainy flavor that continues the bread aroma. Body is light with a smooth light finish

Great malty-toasted aroma, with hints of honey and subtle background of hops. Beautiful amber-orange color, with a big, very dense, pure white head. Flavor is great malty and toasted with a very balancing hops backgroung.

RCx240 (197) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2014
Pours a clear, coppery amber with a rich and creamy off white head. Aroma of caramel, molasses, pine, wheat, and faint citrus. Taste is sweet caramel, molasses, mild floral notes and finished with a lingering hint of smoke. Full body, foamy and bubbly carbonation. A very nice, easy to drink beer that still manages to retain a lot of depth and character. Fabulous for a style I’m not usually that crazy for.

luv2brew (196) - Chesterfield, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2007
Pours a deep copper with a massive white head that lasts a good time The nose is of fresh german malt with no hint of hop bitterness. This is very well rounded, but I was hoping for a little more sweetness. It almost has a little dryness to it. The carbonation is a little bit more than I was expecting, but they pretty much got this one right. This is extremely clean and refreshin with a very small bit of bitterness at the end.

Fluffy head, dark golden color. Very well balanced. Roast malt and just enough hops and bitterness. Not too sweet.

Dimpled mug for this guy. First thing I notice about the beer is the clarity – it’s very clear. The next thing I notice is the aroma, which I can smell from where I’m sitting – my glass is about an arm’s length away. Next we have the head, which is rocky, with inconsistent large and small bubbles. As it fades, the head retention is strange. It looks like fat suspended in broth – lets hope it doesn’t taste like that. Aroma reminds me a little bit of a farm, kind of like damp straw. Damp leaves maybe. Color is amber moving to gold, a little bit darker than a pumpkin. Taste is light, with a slightly salt water mineral finish. Mouthfeel isn’t sticky, more along the lines of creamy. Lager yeast is the name of the game here, as it dominates everything, from the nose of the beer into the first taste. I expected this to have more malt characteristics, honestly, and they are there, to be sure, though not as sweet as I would like. Instead hops are the focus, with some grassy dandelion hops lending a small amount of bitterness to the whole thing. I find this beer strangely drinkable. It’s not like anything I’ve had before – and that’s always surprising. Distinctive.

clear amber-straw color pours with foamy large and quickly diminishing head, aroma of metal and hay, nice mouthfeel, but somehow tastes flat, wondering if i got a bad bottle, hard to recommend off this tasting

500 ml bottle. Pours light brown sugar color with a small tan head. Smells of sweet caramel. Tastes like a caramel apple with a little crisp hop flavor. The perfect fall beer that’s refreshing and tasty while still remaining a beer. One of my all time favorites.
