Here I am going nuts again... within the past month I’ve suddenly been the kindest rater on earth compared to the averages...the prior 2 years I’ve rated far below the averages! This beer poured a coppery amber color with a mildly thick white head which left a nice degree of lacing....3 maybe a 4 on appearance. The aroma is sweet and malty with a hint of hoppy grassiness and a touch of mandarin and nectar and a pinch of cinnamon! The flavor is very mild, mildly carbonated and heavily malted. I’ve had lagers and vienna’s in my time and this is incredibly drinkable. The pure idea of a session beer is this beer. Thick malty backbone, but mildly light in taste, no hops in the finish. Dry malty finish, some hints of nectar fruits in the beginning, but really very light and dry. Call me crazy again but I liked it. It may be incredibly one-sided in its maltiness, but it tasted sweet and very fresh, I can’t complain!

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Light Tangerine. Aroma of caramel, lightly toasted grain, herbs, dandelions and wet grass. Soft palate. This is a marzen style lager, if I am correct. Not a lot of solid flavor to identify with. Sweet malt notes, some fruitiness. The finish is mildly herbal with some almond and cardboard notes. Not a whole here. The total lack of bitterness made this cloying.

Sweet nose of honey, hops and wheat. Nice active and very bubbly palate, with a sweet grain and light maple malt flavor.

The Edgar pours a clear amber with a fine off-white head that quickly goes to a collar.

Its aroma is sweet, grassy, caramel malt with some subtle hops.

The flavor is sweet, caramel malts with a subdued metallic bitter hop finish. It almost seems a little smoky as well. As it warms more toasted caramel comes out. The mouthfeel was kind of acidic and harshly carbonated.

Overall, not bad but not very exciting either. I remember more fruit notes when sampling this at the brewery.

Copper brown, nutty sweet, oily smooth, well hopped at the end. I liked this - good Vienna style brew

Light, clear copper appearance, moderate head formation. Malty, lightly spiced aroma. Sweet caramel malt creamy, toasted almost burnt treacle in the second half, mild bitterness in the finish.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Pretty basic, and not too much different than the Doktor. Still a well balanced and drinkable lager, not over the top or skunky.

MrRomero (1975) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Pours yellow/orange with a thin off white head. Sort of a stale cardboard aroma and sweet malt. A hint of grapes. Flavor is sweet and bubbly. A pretty bad beer.
