marcus (6419) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 24, 2008
This amber ale poured with a fluffy beige head. It smells kind of like Coney Island. There is a thin malt flavor with a harsh bitter finish. This is not up to Hebrew’s standards.

Radek Kliber (6386) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 7, 2008
Bottle 650 ml
Appearance: Clear amber lager with creamy slightly darker top. Low visible carbonation. Little lacing shown. 3-
Nose: Sweet caramel malt with citric west hop twist. Slight straw grainy bottom with black tea feel. 6+
Flavor/Palate : Thinner front with tart fruity citric hops, slight woody English bitter like middle. Less body than average Vienna and with much higher alpha hop profile. More of American dark lager than Vienna.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Bomber consumed at the Freak Bar at Coney Island. Pours copper with a tan head. Smells of sweet malt and some corn with some peppery splashes. Tastes very refreshing with some tea like elements and earthy hints. A fun beer at a fun and unusual place. Consumed with some of the freaks from the 10 in 1 freak show.

5000 (6239) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Bottle: Orange hued caramel, ever so slight haze, large frothy off-white head, clumpy lacing.   Musty basement like malt aroma, smidgen of hops, even minor grainess.   Moderate malt base, not as much as I would have thought.   A bit more hop presense than expected.   Clean, with a little cardboardish malt on the finish.   Doesn’t detract tho.   Hint of sweetness throughout.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Could stand to have a bit more thickness.   That would seal the deal for me.   Otherwise more enjoyable than expected.   So far one of the better Shmaltz beers I have had.   Not up to par with Eliot Ness, but still enjoyable.   Would be perfect if it were a little thicker, and slightly sweeter.

Ernest (6182) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie, caramel), moderately hoppy (apricot, flowers, orange/grapefruit), with a light note of black tea. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Reasonably nice, if simple, aroma followed by an uncomfortably sweet and syrupy mouth experience. Sweetness lingers long after the swallow, and is only barely managed by bitterness. Ho hum overall.

arminjewell (6150) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - JAN 8, 2010
A surprising lager! Poured amber with white head on draft at St Paul Summer Beer Fest, nose was caramel and a bit of hops. The taste up front was a bit of hops that lead into a bready/yeasty malt with some caramel sweetness that finishes rather bitter. A lager I like to drink, not bad at all!

after4ever (6106) - Brier, Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Draft at sb. Pours a clear dark gold with a nise white head and decent lace. Big buttery nose. Slick medium body. Low carb. Caramel and butter on the mid palate. Mild buttery finish.

BVery (6072) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Bottle. Amber pour with a small head. Aroma and taste is malt, yeast, and it finishes with a good bitter tail yet clean. Nice Vienna.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2008
Bottle from a NYC deli. It’s the He’brew guys again, eh? I would have thought it risky to cahrge serious money for lager in such a fierce market. But this is a nice, malty, pleasant lager, probably similar to what you could have had on Coney Island ca 1910. That being said, all the fuzz on the label about 6 malts and 4 hops is a bit too much. But it was lovely with a slice of spinach pizza.

BBB63 (6010) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Bottle and served in standard pint glass: Amber hued with a fading fizzy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and herbal hops, caramel and grainy malt, a dusty yeast and a slight peppery ester. The taste has a nice kick of herbal bitterness over a layer of biscuity malts. There is a hop spice finish and a hint of metallic character. The mouth feel is crisp around the edges with a grainy aftertaste. Not bad, quaffable brew.
