COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The rich amber color and caramel flavor of this beer are derived from the generous amount of caramel malt in our recipe, with just a dash of roasted unmalted barley for a subtle toasted flavor in the background. The sweetness, body, and mouth feel tell you that this is an all-malt beer. The finish has a balanced edge of Willamen and Casade hoppiness which cuts through the malty character, leaving a clean palate which beckons for more. Note: the terminology of "stein" refers to the appropriate drinking vessel and not to a type of beer made with hot rocks.

NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - AUG 17, 2002
Pours like a glass of iced tea, with a frothy, disintegrating head. Nice whiffs of biscuity malt, honey, almond, and tangy Cascades. Startling complexity for a lager, with different aspects of this beer calling for attention at each sip. Seems to defy categorization, sometimes like a bitter, sometimes like an Oktoberfest, maybe even an APA? This rating is for the superb bottled version, but it is even better on draft in Milwaukee. Also, a very neat, colorful label; in fact, one of my favorites in recent memory.

PhillyHomeBrew (176) - Forest Hills, New York, USA - JAN 4, 2008
This beer is a clear amber filtered product with a quickly fleeting head. The aroma is has a bit of apple scent, but not much. It does not have a very strong flavor either, but the little flavor that it does have tastes like shredded wheat.

redmosquito (172) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Dark copper in color, with little head. Malty aroma with a little yeast in the background. Good bitterness yet still malty. This is a beer I could drink all night.
