Draft. Deep amber body with a foamy off-white head, lasting. Aroma of sweet caramel, toasted grain. Lightly floral with hints of lemon peel and citrus. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, moderate carbonation. Starts with caramel sweetness that surrenders to a lingering bitterness.

Part of a sampler had with lunch on the way to haul the sailboat for the winter. I have to say it just had little flavor except for some sour, so watery . . .

islay (890) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2008
3 oz. sample, on tap at the brewhouse. This was the second of 9 Fitger’s beers I tried on 4-4-08. Light, buttery aroma. Caramel scent. The smell is pleasant but forgettable. Pours a clear, dark brass to copper color with a moderate amount of near-white head. Caramel and lightly toasted malt flavors. Dry finish. The taste is quite nice. Light, dry aftertaste. Light body.

hellomynameis (874) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2007
Brown with a large head. Didn’t know at the time it is served on nitro. Very doughy aroma with some subtle hops. Toasted malts, sweet and bitter after taste. Very different but also very very good.
