An early German ale, this full-bodied Düsseldorf style exhibits a rich mahogany color. Special malts imported from Munich lend an authentic malty note to this exceptional brew.

JStax (4105) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Draft sample at the source. The beer is a clear amber color with a beige head of foam. The aroma has caramel and a bit of tin and shampoo character. The taste has some nice sweetness, but the chemical nuances are distracting. Medium body and lower carbonation.

This poured a dark copper to brown color with a white head. The aroma contains some caramel, toffee, and bready notes. The flavor is malty with more caramel, toffee, and some cheerios. Yup I said cherrios! The finish is a bit sweet. Overall a nice session beer.
