Pours a nice, clear, amber with good lacing. Mild citrus ( grapefruit) gives it a pleasant bitter flavor. No bitter aftertaste with a good hop/malt balance. Dont always find that. First Skal for me. Very drinkable.

Pours a clear yellow-gold, thin whispy white head. Subtle phenol aroma, no bitterness, some fruit flavors. Light-medium bodied. Just ok, seems like a light Farmhouse ale.

Draft at OF. Filtered amber-orange color. Minimal head. Sweet malty aroma. Relatively middle of the road, balanced. Sort of a mild spicy Xmas beer with a smooth, malty, lagery mouthfeel. Mellow amber-vanilla nuances. A tad too sweet as usual for CB.

Bottle from Archer Liquor. Pours dark copper with a decent off-white head. Aroma is dark roast caramel with some non-descript hop. Medum plus body with decent carbonation. Flavor is malty and mildly hoppy. Not a spicey xmas thing, but a tasty drink. Heavy despite the low abv.

On tap at a hunting lodge in Spring Green, WI (yeah, weird, I know) - Pours amber with a cream colored head. The smell is wonderful -- light yeasty spice, flowery hops, and a light malt sweetness. Taste is very smooth, with some nice bready maltiness, a bit of hazelnut, and just a little spice. A light, dry floral bitterness evens it all out. There’s too much carbonation, but it’s pleasantly slick and a bit syrupy. Wonderful.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an orangish color with a big head lots of bubbles and plenty of good lace. The aroma is fruity and malty with nutty notes and a light malt sweetness. The flavor is more dry than sweet, a bit boozy with some light saltiness and some good noble hops. I know my rating makes it sound like crap, but I promise this is one fantastic little malty but dry lager.
