Hanuta06 (367) - Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: moderately hoppy. Appearance: small, frothy, off-white, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, sparkling, orange body. Taste: light to moderately bitter, initial flavor and lightly bitter finish with average duration. Palate: light body, watery texture and soft to lively carbonation. Overall: one of my favorite beers. It’s thirst-quenching, has enough hops to keep it interesting, but is also not overly bitter.

Bardzo ?adna bursztynowa barwa, piana drobna, szybko opada do poziomu cieniutkiej warstewki. Aromaty karmelowe przebijaj? si? przez warstw? s?odow?. Goryczka na dobrym poziomie, lecz niestety zostawia nieprzyjemny posmak w ustach.

JDBaker11058 (1411) - Maryland, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Appearance: medium brown, short tan ring of a head, minimal lacing, evident light carbonation. Aroma: light toffee and toast, with some herbal characteristics. Taste: as the aroma indicates. Finish: balanced between slightly sweet, toasty malts and some grassy, herbal and earthy hops. Notes: Would characterize this as an alt, not an amber. Either way, a perfectly reasonable beer. On draught in the Germany area of Epcot at Disney in Orlando, Florida.

Awesome bottle and bottle design. Amber colour, medium white head with good lacing. Aroma of grass, hay, coffee, caramel. Medium bitter taste, with some burnt notes in the aftertaste. Very little carbonation, watery palate.
