500 ml bottle purchased at Nature’s Way Market for $4.49. Lager glass shows a nice looking clear amber color with real thin head. Light retention. Nose is grain, caramel malt and hay. The taste and aromas follow each other and is nice. Caramel malts with bread flavor are the backbone of this brew. The backend of the sip you pick up a lightly spicy hop and lager yeast. Mouthfeel is Medium. Finish is clean and crisp with some lingering bready sweetness. If I ever see this on draft, I would order it. A refreshing drink.

theisti (3297) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - NOV 9, 2012
500 ml bottle purchased at Andy’s Liquor in Rochester, Minnesota. The pour is mostly clear golden light orange with a 1/2 inch off white head that falls pretty quick. The aroma is bready, cereal grains, some light herbal and a hint of caramel sweetness. Some metallic is in there as well. The taste is cracker bready toast, gives way to an herbal grassiness and finishes back with the cereal husky grains. The mild sweetness of the nose is not present in the taste. The metallic somes out as the beer warms, detracting some. Regardless, a flavorful beer. The palate is light to medium bodied, gerat unfiltered mouth feel, and a dry mineral finish. Really easy drinking beer, I liked this.

500ml bottle in a lager glass. Pours amber with a light tan head. Aroma of caramel and toasted malts, some dough, and a good amount of floral almost spicy hops for this style. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer.

doboy (424) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Pours a dark orangish, cloudy, light head. Light aroma of malty sweetness. Taste is somewhat tart earthiness, somewhat thin. Not too bad, but could have been much more. Aftertaste is nice.

Lukaduke (2374) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Pours a hazy sienna color with a finger or two of tan frothy foam... aromas are sweet malts, wheat, biscuit and a touch of floral notes. On the mouth it has great mouthfeel... rich earthy maltiness. Great honeyed notes touched by the slightest floral bitterness to amplify the cracker flavors !

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2012
500ml bottle. Murky grayish orange-brown. Thin, small, patchy head. Doughy yeast esters, maybe a hint of oxidation. Tastes a little faded, amber malt tones,,but I suppose is it in the Oktoberfest style...whatever, this one is clearly past it’s prime, sort of a bummer. Probably one to avoid unless you know it’s fresh. Woody and awkward amber malt tones.

SudsMcDuff (5940) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Had on draft @ The Blue Monk, Buffalo,NY .. . pours a deep tan .. . lots of foam, lacing is a big brush .. . a touch fruity .. a bit soapy too .. . quite tasty, but muddled .. . that could be the gimmick we’re after!

Draft a blue monk, murky dirty orange. Tart bandaid nose, similar flavor, fruity, spree candy with touch of bandaid. Seems off
