Huhzubendah (3002) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 15, 2015
Draft at the source. Light copper / amber body with a small khaki head. Mild aroma. The flavor brings raisins, sweet, dark fruits, a hint of chocolate. Medium sweetness and pretty light in body. Pretty good.

DuchessOfIowa (51) - Iowa, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Poured out if a bottle. Nutty aroma with an odd smell. Deep mahogany brown with a white head that disappears quickly and not much lacing as I drink. Flavor has hints of soy sauce overtaking initial roasted notes.

drowland (6841) - Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Keg at a wedding, June 2014. Orange amber pour with a small khaki head, mild lacing. Malty aroma, caramel, doughy, earthy, mildly floral. Okay flavor, malty, caramel, a bit of nuttiness, toasty. Not bad. Seems I got a good sample.

weihenweizen (2198) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. bottle via queenholly. Dark amber with small off-white head. Aroma is nuts, medium body, low carbonation, and some small-bubble lacing. Taste is caramel, nuts, and some toast. Not my thing. Queenholly with another state tick.

nuplastikk (5072) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2014
12oz bottle. Filtered bright (for the style) orange-amber body. Thin, patchy head. Odd oily caramel aroma. There are some mild infected garbage undertones going on. Otherwise a pretty straightforward almost amber lager...without the amber malt. Everything I’ve had from this brewery has been disappointing and this is no exception.

queenholly (3502) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Draft @ brewery. Slightly sweet toasty wheat malt aroma. Clear amber with a large beige head, nice lacing. Sweet toasty wheat malt flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Ferris (7692) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2014
Draft - Toffee and toasted malts. Deep copper with a nice beige head. Toffee and toast. Well done.

ellolovey (479) - Georgia, USA - AUG 6, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy cola brown with a thin fizzy off white head. Aroma of leather, caramel, and biscuits. Overly carbonated. Tingles the tongue. Pretty thin bodied. Caramel and biscuits give it a sweet and salty effect. Roasted malts are there subtly. Didn’t expect much so wasn’t really let down

Ratman197 (11252) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of caramel, earthiness and light fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of caramel, earthiness and light cocoa with a smooth lingering caramel finish.

arnold931 (853) - Iowa, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Draft at Backpocket Brewery. Pours amber with small off white head. Nose and taste is caramel and bread. Maybe a little hop. A little too malty for me.
