doboy (420) - 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.

16 oz draft pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malts, hay and bread. Taste is malts and bread.

mgajdaczewa (500) - Katowice, POLAND - SEP 7, 2014
W aromacie nie dzieje się zbyt wiele, nieco karmelu, melanoidyn, ale i lekka piwnica. W smaku gorzkawe nuty przypalonego tosta, nieco karmelu no i charakterystyczna nuta piwniczna, coś pomiędzy starym drewnem a wilgocią. Da się pić, ale nie ma szału.

thornecb (4403) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Pours hazy gold into a shaker. White head with little retention recedes to skim surface leaving spider lacing. Sweet caramel and tangy fruit aromas. Medium bodied with sweet caramel, nuts and bread front to back. Lasting slightly tart fruit finish.

@ Sergio’s / Louisville KY --- Clear deep amber, 2" head that is slow to recede, bubbly wall of lace. Nice looking brew. Taste is pleasantly understated - dark roasted malt that satisfies (maybe, because it is understated), then moves smoothly through the palate to a lightly bittered finish that suits this brew very well. The malt stays on the tongue long after everything else is gone. It seems light, but at the same time, it is really satisfying.

JHeath99 (951) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours a transparent dark amber with a super thin layer of off white head. Aroma of malts, bread, and hay. Taste very malty.

Hopswagger (197) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2014
P: Pours a hazy speckled golden amber body. Capped with a beautiful bone colored half inch of milky head. S: Sweet sticky caramel, praline, buttery aroma, wheat, orange bitters, sun kist grain and hints of chewing tobacco. T/M: Raspberries hit the back of the throat on the initial sip and brings forth apple peels, tart lemon and orange swimming around a field of wheat. Strong metallic taste, ground spices and loads of b-vitamin bitterness. Has a faint similarity to rum and coke. Strong tobacco notes in the end like shoveling a hefty helping of Levi Garrett into your mouth. O: I really liked this beer. I was on the fence when I purchased it but I’m glad I did. Taste was much more complex than the nose. Rich toasted caramel, spice, tobacco what more could you ask for. Serving type: bottle

DuffMan (6751) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 18, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Very hazy deep golden/orange. Nice wheaty biscuit malt with notes of quince and hay. No real hop presence. Very nice session ale.

EithCubes (4905) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle, seems to be my 4500th rating at RB. Nose is sweet and very malty, earth with rich caramel, light spice, very sticky toffee, slight fruit. Some nice and strong Bock overtones -- very inviting. Pours a beautiful clear amber with avg carb and a sudsy beige head. Medium body with light but firm bitterness, touch of minerality, feel somewhat flattish but still sticky, lots of caramel/toffee and earth, brown sugar, toasted malt in combination with fresh, rounded earthy hops with light spice and almost a touch of funk. Mild but very nice fruitiness, and clean and refreshing with only about half of the usual lager crispness. Seems to be (ahem) stronger than its gravity would suggest, but there’s a lot to like here, and I like this much better than their Saphir Bock. Heavy, though.

Golden in color, light haze with a light head. Nice easy drinking Kellerwiez. Nice beer I like the flavor it was crisp in the finish.
