COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The return of the Metry’s, it is a very light lager in color. It has a light, sweet grainy aroma with Noble hops present. This beer is well balanced and finishes clean. A light beer with a lot of alcohol, so be careful!!

Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a slightly hazed golden color with a medium ivory white head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of fruit, hops and bready malt. The finish is mildly hoppy with some malt in the background. Pretty average overall.

Draught from btiger. Poured a slightly cloudy gold. Fairly herbal aroma and taste. Ok but not spectacular.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours bright and clear, hiding its true nature. Flavor is sweet, with vanilla tones and a bit of alcohol burn and fruit. One of the most flavorful and well balanced lagers around.

’09 vintage bottle. Clear amber pour with no head. Lots of orange and caramel notes. Kooky, buy good.

Draft. Pours golden amber with a thin head. Malty and grainy aroma with a strange sweetness. The flavor has sweet malts and grainy, and something alse that I didn’t really like but couldn’t put my finger on. Really not that bad, but nowhere close to as good as other Kuhnhenn offerings.

Tap at Rattle for the Kuhnhenn takeover. Hazy brown. Mild aroma with caramel, malt. Taste is strong with a bit of alcohol, more caramel, sweet. Harsh and unbalanced, couldn’t really have more than a sip or two of this.

Draft at RnH with Streets, Andrew, and Brendan during the Kuhnhenn Total Tap Takeover Event. Pours a deep brown body with slight lacing. Aroma is light smoky roast. Mouthfeel is smooth notes of sweet roast, chocolate candy and earth.

Thanks to my mom for picking up the 2009 edition at the 2010 Winter Solstice party for me. Served in a snifter. Closing out the eisbock list with this beer. Pours a moderate brown color with some amber coloring in there as well. Very thin off-white head and a few legs down the side of the glass. Slight collar. Nose is loaded with dark fruits and some alcohol. Slightly spicy as well. Taste is a bit oxidized and really quite warm. Warm as in lots of booze, even for an eisbock. Low carbonation. Decent but probably way too young. Normally Kuhnhenn hides alcohol better than this. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-14-2011

On-tap at the pub, poured into a 6oz tasting glass...A dark but clear gold, good coloring. The head is bright white and keeps about a half finger cap for several minutes. At first the lacing is very full, but falls too quickly. Good start...The aroma is totally dead, very disappointing, only a slight hint of hops...The taste is exceedingly sweet, corn, floral bitter hops help to break the sweetness. Reminds me more of a pilsner with a little black pepper finish. A touch to sweet but this makes this totally crushable at a shocking 7%. If I had to drink a lager I’d probably go for this, but at Kuhnhenn tough to keep going back to this with so many other options.

Poured up on tap at the Kuhnhenn brewpub with clear light copper body and white head. The aroma puts out floral hop like cotton candy sweetness, mild spiciness and some lager-y yeast. The taste is sweet and gets caramel-y before lager yeast and thick sugary maltiness take over. I’m not picking up much in the way of hoppiness which seems a bit odd since floral hops were noted in the nose. Nice brew nonetheless.
