Can. A clear, dark amber to brown body forms under a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is lightly wort-like, with toffee, nuts, some dark chocolate and a faint touch of coffee grit. It’s roasted and full-bodied, semi-dry and with a pleasant carbonation level. Toffee, nuts, some chocolate and coffee too, lasting for a good while..A bit boring this one I think, but it drinks easily and is flawless. 150606

Sample at Fette Sau. Clear pale brown color with a thin beige head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, nuts and mild earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2006
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.

Draught at the Fette Sau, New York, NY.
Dark reddish amber colour with small creamy off-white head. Mild malty aroma with sugary sweetness, brown sugar and nuts. Toffee and sugary sweetness, sweet maltiness and mild nuttiness in flavour. Too sweet for me.
