COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This German "old ale" was aged to perfection in order to deliver an aggressive hop flavor to compliment the malty caramel overtones.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4918) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2006 Sampled on draft at the Monroeville PA location this beer poured a cloudy light brown color with only a trace of a white head. The aroma was of light malts and moderate yet undefined hops. The flavor was lightly malty with a hint of spice and a dry finish. A drinkable but rather unremarkable brew.

DYCSoccer17 (3320) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 12, 2005
Sampled at Manchester, CT location. Aroma is very difficult to decipher at first. Slight roasted metallic notes come through with more sweetness coming out as this warms. Transparent amber color with a small quickly dissipating yellowish head. Slightly sweet to start turning caramelly and roasty in the middle. Finishes with a metallic twang and light hop bitterness. Slightly thin.

zach8270 (3472) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [draft - John Harvard’s Pittsburgh - Monroeville, PA] Poured a clear copper color with a tan head. Very strong sweet malt and hops aroma. Initial taste was a blast of hops that gave way quickly to a nice smooth and sweet malt finish.
