Bottle from Alexsdad06. Thanks! Pours a solid medium amber with a nice beige head. Nice aroma of dark bread and lager yeast. Flavor is heavy with munich malts and bread grains with a moderate spicy bitterness to balance it out. Some toastiness on an otherwise clean finish. Not bad at all.

Decent beer with no adjuncts. Nice clear amber beer with a large rapidly diminishing off white head. Cr3eamy moutfeel and nice balance of malt with the lightly bitter hopp finish. Decent balance.

Had on the MN Zepher train. Not much of a selection of brew on the train, so this will due. Not bad, some slight sweetness, a lot of malt. Easy, light drinker. Not bad.

DrnkMcDermott (2748) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Basic nice amber color. Pours a good rocky head, nice clear body with columns of bubbles. Smell offers some nice malty aromas, no suggestion of adjuncts, so thanks for that. Taste is pretty good, malty, but with a good hop note to it, bubbly and a little sticky. Some graniness that does not detract.Crystal malt flavor tends toward the caramel roast side. A noticeable touch of alcohol, but not burning. Again, a nice use of German style hops that offers some spice while holding malts in check.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Purchased several cases (cans) for our company picnic. Pours a clear carmale amber brew with an average sized off-white head that quickly dissolves to an almost clean with a fine film . Aroma of roasted multi-grainy caramel malt, some citrus zest and a touch of sour apple. Taste is highly carbonated, medium bodied with multi-grain dough and some light citrus peel flavors. Finish is dry, slightly musty with a faint pecan flavor in the aftertaste.

Pours a rich amber color yet with a taste that is quite thin. It was an ok beer but not really what I was expecting.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Tasted 09/09/09. 12oz bottle. Filtered with an amber hue. Finger width of off-white head. Faint aromas of caramel and doughy bread. Medium bodied with a very smooth malt character. Good amount of sweetness from the malts. No noticeable flaws. Sessionable and easy. Finishes with a mildly sticky sweetness. Little to no hop presence. This is not too bad! Quaffable and mild, but very drinkable.

Pours amber with an off white head. Aroma is yeast bread and caramel. Flavor is sweet and malty, earthy and grainy, with a hint of bitterness.
