5/2/12. 22oz bomber. Clear amber pour, lots of red, with a small khaki head that fades and laces in small, spotty sheets. Sweet caramel and malty aroma with a good touch of noble hops in there. Bold malty flavor, not bad really, with a hint of fruitiness, a touch of bitter hop character, and lasting smoothness. Not too shabby.

AirForceHops (2948) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 6, 2012
22 oz. bottle purchased @ Julio’s Liquor’s for $4.99 minus Wild Six Discount. Used a Kolsch glass. Ruby / brown color with sizable, white lasting head. Light lace. Overall nice eye appeal. Nose of malt and some floral hop like aroma’s. Toffee flavors with graininess and a decent hop bitterness in the back end to give it a more traditional German feel to it. The bitterness lingers just a bit. A nice offering.

TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle @ home. Pours a deep reddish orange appearance with a big, light brown head. Quite rich caramel, Munich malty, toffee, light citrusy, straw aroma. A little fruity (apple, pear), toasty caramel malty, toffee, grassy, earthy, a bit nutty flavor with a floral, herbal, grassy aftertaste. A little too sweet for my taste. A bit of a disappointment but not all that bad.

scottw86 (1089) - Maryland, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Poured a nice clear amber color with a slightly reddish hue. Creamy off-white head. Lots of caramel in the aroma with biscuits. Taste is quite bitter with some light fruit and more caramel. Slightly thin bodied at first. Aftertaste has more biscuits and hops. Good!

anderson01 (201) - Idaho, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Dark ruby red in color with a thick Bubbly head. Lacing is very poor. Malty aroma. Vanilla and Caramel notes. Toasted peanuts also noticeable in the aroma. Taste like liquid peanut butter. Watery texture with a abrupt finish. Light-bodied with low carbonation. For the price a good beer.

JStax (2773) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a Belgian style tulip glass. Pours a translucent amber with a thick froth of beige foam. Aroma is sweet and carrot cake-y with a nice hop bitterness coming through. Taste is a touch sweet at first, but moves toward a nicely bitter finish. Its an interesting take on the style.

mmmbeer (1225) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2012
22 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a transparent light brown with maybe a shade of amber, sat very still in the glass. White ring for a head with tiny whisps of the same color, aroma of toasted wheat and a hint of rye. Hits the mouth with an even medium body, malt was fairly and nicely toasted, some hearty firmness in the middle, finish is slightly bittering and makes me want to add some Everclear to speed up the process... but in due time...
