Brewfest NY 08. Man i wish i was able to write down notes at the fest, but it was pouring rain and I had an umbrella in one hand, and my drinking glass in the other. I remember this being below average. Obviously need to try it again.

Sampled at the NY Brewfest on 9/12. Not able to give a very accurate rating due to the sheer number of brews sampled. Guys serving the stuff where pretty douche, beer tastes like anus.

A perfect session beer. Mild carbonation and smooth nutty flavor. Purchased as a growler from Bierkraft in Brooklyn.

What? Lager? Super hoppy and dark. Tastes like General Tsao’s Chicken. In a good way. On tap at DINO BBQ!!! New York.

Sampled on tap at GWBF 2007. Poured a clear brown with a quickly disappearing off-white head. Light but pleasant aroma of nuts and caramel malt. The flavor is a bit more earthy with nuts and caramel malt again. A bit dry with some light bitterness at the finish.

I enjoyed this brew on tap at the Waterfront Ale House in NYC. It poured a lightly carbonated, thick brown lager. Nice head on the beer with an appealing nutty aroma. I was impressed with the initial hazelnut hit on my palate. Finished nicely with choclate and mild hoppy hints.

Tap at the Brewery’s opening: Deep brown/amberish pour with a stable creamy off-white head. Aroma has a light milky character with hints of chocolate and a cascade note. Has a really nice mouthfeel with the perfect amount of carbonation. The nuttynes is somewhat dry and earthy. Smooth light hop notes in the finish. A solid Brown/Dunkel.

Tap at HDG. Pale brown beer, thin white head. Aroma is very malty. Soft earthy malts and a bit of spicy/woody hops over the top. Flavour is also fairly hoppy with spicy hops, toasty malts and a soft earthy finish. More ale-like than any other lager I’ve had, but it certainly hits the spot.
