ChainGangGuy (4353) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 15, 2012
22 ounce bottle - $5.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clear, amber-hued body with a medium-small, wispy, ivory-hued head.

Smell: The nose leans a bit malty, with a note of toasted biscuit tops and suggestion of homemade caramel. Low hint of esters. Moderate degree of spicy-minded Continental hops.

Taste: Biscuity, toasty German malts with a little, sweetish nibble of burnt sugar. Slight fruitiness with a bit of green raisin showing. Spicy Noble hop bitterness gives a slight bite and a steady-as-she-goes dryness until the finish with a final zip of suds.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. A notch on the dial just above medium carbonation.

Overall: A solid, well-built alt.

A good amount of sweet caramel and bread in the nose also. Simple, dry body. Bread, toasted grain, caramel. Smooth and soft Lager-ed character. Perfectly balanced. Finishes with a light herbal hop flavor, which is mostly hidden under the toasted malt backbone of this one. (3374)

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2012 Bottle... Poured reddish amber, deep red with an eggy, beige head. Nose had diacetyl and some husky grains. Diacetyl not so much in the flavor. Decent carbonation, some sweetness, biscuity, earthy, spicy hops. Low bitterness, clear finish. Low esters.

emacgee (3986) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Pours a soft copper brown with a slight haze. One finger of frothy off white head. Nose is dominated by Munich and Vienna. Super bready and biscuity with lots of toasted grain. Has a weird slickness to it. Almost tastes like diacetyl. Some caramel-y sweetness and herbal hops. Not digging this flavor or the mouthfeel. No carbonation and a super soft body with an overly aggressive bitterness.
