BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 22, 2008
2003 - This was a very interesting take on the style, I actually found this to be quite enjoyable. Assertive fruit notes in the nose, with some yeasty qualities on the palate, that intermingle nicely with the rich caramel maltiness, leaving a lingering honey sweetness. Not as full-bodied as I would like, this still has a great texture and drinkability. Very interesting and very well balanced.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Dark gloomy peach amber in color. Big dense head laced very well. Dry hop aroma, sweet malts with some fruitness in the nose. Very unique flavor. Somewhat spicy with ginger, cinnamon, pumpkin but I doubt they use spices. Sweet malts and a lingering dry bitterness on the finish.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Pours a light amber color with a small off-white head. A mild aroma that includes raisins, malt, licorice, and caramel. Medium bodied with a sort of silky texture. The flavors are a fine mix of licorice, raisons, malt, caramel, and a simple touch of hops in the finish. Pretty good.

MrRomero (1972) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Pours a deep copper color with a fluffy tan head. Big sweet malt aroma, light hops. Has a malty flavor with hints of smoke and maybe a little chocolate. Finishes bitter. A tasty, well-rounded, full-bodied beer.

3.8
   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Off-white cottony head and nice apricot color body with some very fine particles. Powerful nose of toasted, buttery malts, fresh wort, and spicy hops. Flavor is malty, herbal, and resinous. Big flavor for a 6.0% beer. Considerable bitterness for such a malty brew, a little astringent even. Still, fresh and unique.

lilannie (384) - Adamstown, Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2004
2003 vintage:
Aroma: apple fields, oranges, alcohol, slight smells from salmon egg oil, a bit of black walnut scents
Appearance: reddish-brown with small white head
Flavor: sweet, carmel flavors with bitter-burnt flavors. very acidic grapefruit flavors. also strong coffee bitterness
Palate: bitter/acidic bite

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 21, 2004
Slightly murky amber and orange appearance. Spiced apple and bread aroma. Caramel maltsz and maple. Spiced apple and a sour chemical aroma as it warms. Spiced vegetables in the flavor as it warms as well. Did I mention spiced?

3.2
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
heykevin (1273) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - MAR 18, 2004
Full noble hop aroma. Some light sulfury notes. Shows similar yeast character to the Uerige Sticke rated previously. Underlying appley sweetness comes on strong as it warms. Sweetish and kind of muddled.

HopasaurusRex (195) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2004
Bomber from the brewery-while my palate isn't as familiar w/Alts, very nice Vienna malt flavor and enough bitterness to qualify for an Alt. One of the better beers I've had from Full Sail

3.6
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2003
Okay, I like this, but as a Pale Ale. As a Kolsch/Altbier I think it would be a dissappointment. Orange colored, translusent, aroma of citrus and pine. Flavor somewhat bitter and sweet. Finish malty sweet.
