Pailhead (5803) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2009 Bottle: Aroma is malty with a mixture of caramel, banana, toastiness, and earthiness. It pours a transparent amber with a one-inch white head that fizzes out somewhat quickly. The flavor starts with moderate caramel and light toffee. The finish has moderate toastiness with some herbal and earthy bitterness. Light-medium bodied with very mild carbonation that leaves the mouthfeel feeling a bit thin at times. It’s okay, but my tastes have changed quite a bit since my original rating. What was once my favorite style, I’m now finding a bit boring. My original rating was 7-4-7-3-16.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - AUG 26, 2004
Watery, thin amber/orange body with a buttercream, big bubbled head. Smells malt and german hops. Taste is bitter German hops, butterscotch, malt, berries, bread (doughy). Malty flavor makes for a very nice drinking Octoberfest beer. Not necessarily the greastest taste and depth of flavor, but just an easy drink that could be had by the dozen.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUL 30, 2004
Pours copper with almost no head. Acidic toffee and caramel taste. Carbonated but no head makes me think this is infected.

jazz88 (2625) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 26, 2004
Bottle. Dark amber reddish color with a light foamy tan head and lots of rising bubbles. A delightly sweet fruit and rich malt aroma with mollasses. A malty caramel flavor that is both smooth and thick. Much better than expected.

Pretty good beer. Pours a nice medium amber with a good off-whtie head. Kinda weak aroma that I couldn’t grab on to. Smooth metallic taste, good amount of hops. Def a good brew.
