Dogbrick (8650) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2009
This brew pours a deep chestnut color with a medium beige head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Nutty and malty aroma. Medium, smooth body with flavors of roasted malt, nuts and hops. The finish is nutty like cashews with notes of roasted malt and moderately bitter hops left over. Decent overall.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2010
Deep amber pour with a sticky, white head. The nose is lightly leafy with a kiss of sweet caramel and toasted malt. Clean, sweet malt. A lot of noble/floral hoppiness with excellent balance between those aspects and the clean, lightly toasted malt. I always find it tough to describe well-balanced, clean craft lagers – and this is definitely that.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2012 12oz bottle, BBD April 2008. Rich and malty all over, the Full Sail house character is really evident, and I’m a big fan of it. Chewy, resinous nuts, wood, dried leaves, with caramel malt and munich malt abounding, and a light, proper bitterness level that really compliments the malt base. Fresh and vibrant, really overall a solid effort. Delicious, and based on the ratings, underappreciated.

jercraigs (8039) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2008
2008-06-24. Dark amber body, with a small beige head. Sweetish aroma, modest touches of caramel and floral hops. (6+) Similar flavour has a sweet malty start and very light hoppy bitterness throughout. (6+) Smooth, slightly fuller than average palate. Decent, quaffable, but a touch boring. Bottle from Mabel’s Seattle trip.

JorisPPattyn (8031) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 29, 2008
Medium, creamy yellowish head, slightly irregular; well-carbonated light amber-brown beer. Bready nose, melanoidins, wet wood. Spicy, in a Coca-Cola way. Much drier taste than the nose suggests, precious little restsugars, and a bitterish, more or less hoppy finish. BUT! There’s no doubt there’s diacetyl n here, and if in a dark beer that overshadows the melanoidins instead of blending, there must be a lot. Bit like a herbal stomachbitter, very watered-down. Light to medium bodied. Not bad after all, but a bit too exuberant on the diacetyl. Thankee, DaveDave!

BMan1113VR (7868) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Pours with a small, off-white head covering a clear, lightish brown body. Suprisingly nice aroma of fruit, spices, maybe some light pineapple and candied yam esters; its very different. Body is a bit thin, but taste is good with fruity and wheaty notes. Slightly nutty finish. Watery mouthfeel comes with the thin body. A better beer than I was expecting.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Bottle sampled on 2/13/07: Pours a clear copper bronze with a thin, spotty-lacing off-white head. Sweet, lightly caramel malty aroma has some toasty grainy notes and lager yeast. Body starts fairly full and slightly caramely sweet with some earthy pale malty notes and lager yeasty presence. True to style, but pretty bland.

Ibrew2or3 (7077) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2008
Courtesy of Degarth. Pours clear deep copper nearing amber with thin tan head. Mild aroma with sweet malts and roasted malts getting together for a semi sweet malty nose. Also I seem to be smelling some pale to grainy to biscuit malts. The body is a bit thin with sweet malts, caramel, mild dark fruity esters and a base of molasses in the background. Loved the aroma albeit it was too light.

bb (6861) - Alamo, California, USA - FEB 12, 2007
Bottle. Rich caramel color with a nice beige head. Slight earthy, spicy, caramel aroma. Caramel, earthy, slight citrus flavor. Medium bodied. Lingering caramel and citrus. More caramel than expected. Easy drinking.

phaleslu (6790) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2010
12 oz. bottle as a bonus from a trade with LtDan- thanks, Dan! Pours a clear copper color with a small off-white head that leaves a film as a cap on the beer. Aroma of banana, caramel malts, toast, nuts, cherry, hops, and mild spices. Flavor of caramel malts, nuts, toast, sugar, mild spice, hops, funk, and a mineral note. Light-medium bodied, with average carbonation and a funky finish. Sweet, bitter, nutty, and funky. Somewhat chewy in mouthfeel. Interesting beer and not skunky like a lot of German dunkels, but still has a consistent and unusual funkiness.
