Slight fruity aroma. Malty sweet flavor with some alcohol taste. Finish has a little yeast flavor. Reminds me a little bit of a Maibock. This is a decent beer but I would like more flavor to help mask the alcohol more.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2003 This beer (to use a Hopscotchism) ROCKS!!! Deep yellow color with a perfect white head. Spicey floral aroma with hints of alcohol, that says "Grand Cru". Big malty profile perfectly balanced with spicey hops and a slight alcohol burn. Absolutely delicious!!!

Just finished my finals, so I stopped at Discount and picked up some beer to rate. This one has an interesting taste, lots of carbonation, but it works for this beer. Not bad.

Apple cider aroma. Large bubbled white head that dies rather quickly over a clear orange body. Light feeling, like a fruit soda. Light flavor of apples, maple and bread. Dry finish with a big residual apple flavor. Thanks to Joe for sharing.

Frothy off white head. Dark golden amber hue. Pear, light fruit, alcohol nose. Sweet, syrupy, alcohol, pepper, salty, medium bodied, finishing sweetly. Oh man, I cant finish this, cuz It reminds me of some sort of Polish Steel Reserve. Not terribly impressed folks.

They've done it again. Destroyed an acceptable beer by pouring vodka in it.
A promising aroma with hop and smokiness, but the flavour...

Amber. Malty aroma with some hops. Not such bad taste considering the alcohol content. Some smokiness in the flavor.

Looks good with deep amber colour and big white head. Sweet alcoholic aroma. Flavour is extremely sweet with too much alcohol. Syrupy and sticky. I am very surprised that so many RateBeerians like this brew.
