closey22 (888) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - NOV 5, 2012
DeeP amber thin off-white head; not much aroma; Flava is nice and rich and complex blend of malt, slightly roasted and hops and alcohOl; feels ri ch with a nice biting fizz. Finishes long and dry some grassy notes.
Earlier Rating: 9/25/2012 Total Score: 3
Flava and finish is the strong suit. Which is good for drinking a beer. Hint of toasty nutty in aroma but nice and powerful in the Flava. Finishes slightly sweet yet bitter and dry.

pineypower (2509) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Tap at Maple Shade. Pours out an attractive orange color with a small off white head. Aroma is of caramel malts, grainy bread, mild honey and some lingering floral hops in the background. Taste is much the same, clean caramel, grains, cereal, grass, bread, some honey and a light lingering bitterness on the finish.

BiddleBrau (938) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2012
On tap at Chestnut Hill. Clear, dark amber, no head. Toasted caramel malt nose. Malty sweet with some roastiness. Hops mix with roastiness to provide some bitterness but this is primarily a malt profile.

keepersj12 (2688) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2012
A nice version of the style. Malty with bread, caramel, some yeast. The flavor is the same, nicely balanced, and good with the Oktoberfest menu.

theyshookhands (243) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Pours a light coffee color with a light tan head and a little lace. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee, caramel and roasted malts. Roasted malts, peat, a little dark chocolate and resin. Kind of sour with a clean, bitter finish.

ReggieDunlap (3069) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2011
Pours a dark amber with a medium tan head...nice lacing. Aroma has some roastiness and nuttiness...bready as billed. Flavor follows suit and has nice earthy notes...faint spice and bitterness in the back end. Mouthfeel is lively and refreshing with a dry bitter/roasty finish.
