Swing-top bottle from the Sam-apostrophe-s in Downers Grove, IL. It pours a hazy golden amber body with a tall egg-shell head and produces some slippery lace.

Quaffable brew for ratting number 4,444..

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brewed in Germany..... Pours a golden orange color with a dissipating white head. Aroma of cookie dough, sugar, and malts. Taste is of caramel, malts, and a hint of honey. The mouthfeel is thin and kind of dissappointing but not bad overall.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a decent looking amber color with a thin off-white head. Aroma reminds me of bananas foster. Sugar coated caramelized bananas. Not unpleasant, but a little weird. Beer is fairly sweet and has a big malt presence. Smooth drinker though. Interesting beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle with plastic stopper. Pours a murky tan color. The aroma is sweet, not unlike brown sugar or cookie dough. Sweet malty taste as well, with some bocky characteristics. Perhaps a little Amber malt in there? Nice smooth caramel/butterscotch finish. A lot of the flavors of a stronger bocks, but way more drinkable at 5.6%. Good, unique Winter beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle a light copper-amber body with a hardy thick off-white head. I was surprised this was a light colored beer judging by label. Sweet, honey, nutty nose with lots of yeasty esters. Phenolic banana-clove presence. MIld roastiness and chewy honeyed finish. Pretty good one!

This kellerbier pours a medium orange gold color from a 50cl bottle. Small to medium bodied white foamy head with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is herbal and earthy and slightly sweet. A medium bodied kellerbier. The malts are caramel and sweet with a bunch of banana flavor. The hops are earthy. Nice balance. A touch sweet, but there are some nice malts flavors going on here. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden color with a big white head. Aroma is lightly sweet like honey, and a bit of yeast. Flavor is a very nicely balanced blend of malts and hops, not too sweet, no bitter taste. Lightly roasted marshmallows, with a touch of honeysuckle. Finish is light but lingering......

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml. bottle from Liquid Solutions. Slightly hazy gold color with a multi-finger white head. Aromas of wheat and banana and veg/herb. Medium body with lightly frothy carbonation. Flavor is wheat (probably none in reality, but that’s it for my mouth) and herb/veg/hop with a hint of banana. Rather bready. Really refreshing in the heat, winter beer or no. Good drink. Finish is dryish, and there is definite herb/hop bitter.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a copper color with a nice white head. The nose is herby with some nice caramel malt and yeasty notes. The flavor is pungent with ripe banana and toasty biscuit along with the light fruitiness of the yeast and the hops. The finish is clean and distinct. Very nice body, quite a nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Swing-top. Nose is yeasty and sweetly malty, touches of grain and cellar, nicely spicy. Hazy dark amber pour with a creamy rocky white head. Taste is more of the same, sweet, yeasty, lots of pale malts, some toasted grain, spice. A few sugar cookies thrown into the barrel. Touch of lemon spritz. Watery-thin body, clean, slightly dry end. Easy-going, refreshing, pleasurable.
