mds (2209) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2006
Bottle. Clear copper body with a fluffy white head. The aroma is cookie-ish, somewhat herbal, with creamy hops. Palatable body with creamy hops and soft toasty malt. Fairly light, drinkable, but not entirely flavourful. Somewhat underwhelming.

blankboy (6052) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc, mds & tupalev -- courtesy of mds. Pours a clear dark orange with a large foamy white head. Aroma is quite sweet and malty. Somewhat watery flavour of caramel malt and a light bitterness. Light bodied. It’s alright I guess, I’m not a fan of this style of beer.

Gorbalev (2924) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2006
Bottle shared with the regular crew plus MDS at Greg’s, MDS’ bottle. Sweet, malty, brown sugar aroma - toasty - too sweet for me. Dark brown, small white head. Taste isn’t too bad: tinny hops and malt, tea like character as well. Very easy to drink. Simple and effective. I’m not terribly fond of the style but this is good.

GregClow (2892) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2006
Bottle shared with blankboy, HogTownHarry, jerc, tupalev & mds - courtesy of mds. Pours a clear reddish-orange with a moderate white head. Aroma is all malt, all the time - nice, but simple. Flavour is malty as well, with a bit of fresh tobacco, and a dryish finish. Again, quite simple, but OK.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2006
Amber brown body, small white head. Odd toasty malt aroma, interesting dryness over sweet malt. Flavour of sweet caramel malt with toasted malt, a light bitterness emphasize by some dry astringent grains. Average palate is on the thin side. Underwhelming. 6+/3/5-6/3/12

HogTownHarry (6108) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2006 Bottle (500ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc, mds and tupalev, mds’s bottle. Poured clear amber-orange with an average foamy-rocky white head. Sweet fruity malt aroma, lightly toasty and candyish, with grapeseed bitterness and a nice fresh sweet timothy grain character. Tasted grain-sweet (almost cereal), simple, with an odd Wrigleys Doublemint gum sweetness in the finish. It’s a little watery, and could use a little more carbonation and oomph - maybe more alcohol, wood or roast character.

eaglefan538 (2893) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 11, 2006
The usual appearance: clear copper with a nice head and good (not the best) lacing. The aroma was balanced hoppy and malty. The flavor was tipped in the hoppy direction and was analogus to an American Pale Ale take on the altbier style. Poured from an oak wooden keg and there was some oak in the flavor as it warmed. Mouthfeel a touch thin, but crips and refreshing. The dryness held this one together pretty nicely. Rather outstanding beer from the style and great overall.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2006
Bottled. Aroma is herbal with caramel malts. Light brown, beige head, good lace. Light sweet, bitter, caramel malts, hints of raisin and caramel, herbal, plastic?, sugar on the lips, medium body. Not as great as I thought it would be. Maybe try on tap once.

3fourths (8038) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2007 Draft/barrel
Consumed at Brauerei im Füchschen, Düsseldorf, June 2006

Caramel brown color and clear appearance. Tan bubbly head with a medium thickness layer of standing lacing. Airy, dusty nose of moderately spicy yeast, pine needles and ’fall’ scents. Good balance of bittering hops and sweet malt flavors, very good, creamy, rich texture, tasty all around, with some grassy notes in the finish. Up front it’s mostly toasted caramel and sharp, robust apple syrup and sap. Great stuff. Only complaint would be that the nose is quite faint. Drank this along side the Schlachtplatte with saurkraut and mashed potatoes at the brewery in Düsseldorf.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Light copper in color with a dense white head. Aroma is of bready malt. Flavor has a clean bitterness, very lager like. Spicy bitter hop finish with a medium body.
