Remarkably disappointing. Nice color, but the aroma was overwhelmingly musty, like broccoli. If I had to base a beer on its aroma, I would not have even tasted this. Fortunately there wasn’t an offensive taste, as a matter of fact there was very little taste at all.

Initial musty aroma over a nice, crispy looking effervescence, but this is thin and punchless without any snap at all.

I am sorry but I must decent on the common rating of this beer. This is liquid poop in a bottle as far as I am concerned. Aroma is malty and not displeasing. Appearance has nice tan head initially, mostly diminishing. Brown and clear in appearance and all in all not bad. The taste however is where I detect some nasty stuff. Initial sweet taste with a bitter finish. But somwhere in between i get a strong plastic taste which is quite displeasing. I recomend you steer clear of this one.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2005 From the bottle at Yeoman’s Road Pub. It doesn’t look like a flavorless watery lager/pilsener from Germany, but guess what.......There is some malt flavor there and some caramelt, but it tastes like it was added to 11 ounces of water.

Draft at the Wurstfest. Glad I stayed with the HoffB and the HaSC before I had this one. a light bodied semi watery brew with seemingly added caramel coloring and caramel candy taste. Both in taste and color the dark fails. Watery body with a metallic and mercifully quick finish. Back to the HB for me for the rest of the evening. Head was a nice light beige. Blah

Clear copper pour, no head, some lace. Little to no aroma. Very flat, sweet caramel flavor, not much going for this. Tastes like a wimpy Newcastle Brown

1.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thoroughly disappointing. Holding it up to the light, the appearance reminded me of dark, cherry cough syrup. Flavor was bland, with a hint of hops and fennel. The quality that seriously hurts this beer, however, is the aroma, which is foul and earthy. A beer can’t be good if its aroma causese you to hesistate taking the first sip.

The best thing about this one is the color. Maybe mine was skunked (damned green bottle)but it was sour and just plain bad. This beer left a bad bitterness with no real finish and no reason to want to take the next drink. I cannot recommend this beer to my friends or my enemies. Don't bother.

Bottle. Smelled a bit skunky. Poured dark amber. Little head that it didnt retain. Thin mouthfeel. Didnt like this one very much.

Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma is grain, apple, skunk, sweet malt, and is like cereal. Taste is faint nuttiness , skunk, grain, and an unpleasant sweetness. Not very good, some roast but this beer is mostly weak and cheap.
