Bright bronze. Broken, but densely packed, off-white foam. Expressive malt nose of cocoa, caramel, and roasted dough. Very soft with a smidge of diacetyl and honeyed dates. Fluffy carbonation, but also fairly chalky. Initially sharply roasty and grainy with a fluffy biscuit quality interwoven with delicate tobacco. Quite husky, but the well-attenuated body negates much of it. Hops produce a gentle bitterness which complements the deep notes of toasted dough, but sorely lack vibrancy and definition. Finishes dryly malty and firm with fresh notes of biscuits and cocoa. Unfortunately the overuse of hops in the aroma outshine the alluringly aromatic malt elements. In terms of flavor, the muddled hop flavors and carbonic acidity are too much of a detraction.

Pours a murky amber with a small head. I always get annoyed when raters throw out 20 different aromas they smell in each beer. Yea right! When I saw cooked vegetable aroma for this one I started to get annoyed again. Well, I poured this beer and took a smell.... Time to eat crow now. Yep. They were correct. I smelled vegetable. This is not a bad thing. Also sort of malty. Overall it is not a very bad beer.

This beer is just malty all the way around. Kind of has a vegetal thing going on, roasted vegetables and a earthy kind of mineral flavor. Other than this it is slightly syrupy and sweet, with some fruit and spice rounding out the flavor.

Bottle: Deep orangish amber, fairly thick and hazy, moderate to large foamy head, off-white in color, okay lacing.   Toasted grain nose, but unfortunately also quite a bit of overcooked vegetable.   Malty start, slight caramel, but that overcooked vegetable is still there.   Not as heavy as on the nose tho, thankfully.   Semi-sweet, with a moderate body and mouthfeel.   Clean finish, not much vegetable at this stage.   Decent, but leaves me wanting an Eliot Ness.   Thanks Ernest for the trade!

On tap at brewery. Medium amber with a small white head. Unique aroma of pipe tobacco, caramel, and honey. Malty taste, some wheat, maybe celelry? Decent.

On tap at the brewery, 4/12/06: True amber hue. Caramel and toasty character in the aroma and flavor. Well balanced. Not too sugary like many in the style.

From a 12 oz. long neck brown bottle with a blurb about the lager on the side of label, no freshness date. Made a good appearance, poured a chill hazy amber with a foamy, bubbly topped off-white head that settled into a semi-sticky, bubbly thin lacing, highly carbonated. To the nose, it had a earthy, fruity aroma with an underlining toasted grainy maltiness. Some musky notes as well. A slick, carbonated light bodied mouth feel, average drinkability. Had a strangely sweet taste, veggie and berry, a buried toasted maltiness and a earthy bitter finish with an unpleasant subtle veggie and metallic aftertaste.

Pours to a deep amber body with a bubbly khaki head. The aroma is toasted malts and soapyness. Muted hops. The flavor is malty, white pepper, deep toastyness, and lightly spicy earthy hops. The palate is spicy, medium light bodied. Decent love-hate kinda beer.
