A traditional German style with a wonderful malt flavor and a hint of chocolate.

I found this a surprisingly great beer. Very smooth and properly sweet. A full bodied beer that won't disappoint if you like a full flavored beer with a touch of Carmel and molasses. Enjoy! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Surprisingly good for a Granite City brew! Very forward caramel, nutty, toasty flavor that is very enjoyable. Thinnish body but very flavorful and tasty brew indeed. Refreshing. Nice darkish brown color too.

ARH (406) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2014
On tap poured into a 24 oz glass stein. The aroma is a very mild somewhere in between toasty and burnt caramel malt. The hazy red-brown (caramel?) colored beer is topped with a very light white head which retains a medium-thin ring and leaves a fairly clear glass. The taste is overall mellow with a medium sweetness and a medium light bitter. There’s an above average, soft carbonation to the medium malty body with a light / creamy thin texture. A roasted caramel and grain come through at the finish with a touch of nuts and a bit of chocolate. It’s a pretty clean finish with a slight caramel aftertaste.

On tap @ the Granite City Food & Beer in the Indianapolis airport, concourse A. Medium old-penny brown, miniscule head. Bready malts, more nutty than chocolatey, oddly. If I were guessing, I’d peg this as a brown ale.

Draft, reddish brown with a white head, sweet taste with caramel, malt and a hint of fruit, dry finish, was hoping for better but this is an average beer,

tap sampler @ Troy, MI location. Pours a clear light brown with a small off-white head. Sweet malty caramel aroma. Thin almost watery mouthfeel, medium bitter. Sweet fruity malt flavor with caramel and some grainy notes.
