Nutty malt and some buttery diacetyl in the aroma. Copper-brown colour with thin white head. Very malty flavour with balancing bitterness and some buttery notes. Medium body and strong carbonation. Sampled September 2003.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Appearance: clear, dark amber hue, under a shortish, off-white head. Aroma:herbal and malty, not showing any hops, dry, and, well, interesting, in that it’s relatively shy, but betrays certain character. Taste: that dry malty profile continues through the flavor, never touching sweet, yet sometimes showing a fruity side, cherries, berries, and banana, even. Medium to full bodied, with a decent finish that ends rather dryly, though the flavor still slingers. Hops were never detected in action here, as if banished from the proceedings. All in all, a very intriguing brew, drinkable, enjoyable, but not my type at all. Takes a little something extra.

Very sweet nutty butter aroma. Watery. Flavor is nutty, somewhat tart, slight butter. Stale finish. Meh.

Just when I wanted to relax on a crisp fall night, I chose the harvest as my partner and was dissapointed. Vey bland taste sip after sip, i was expecting a rush of flavors that never came though. it was like drinking an extra dry and extra extra light knock off version of a true octoberfest beer. well, i finished a 6er regardless. cheers

DYCSoccer17 (3334) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 3, 2004
Pours a transparent dark copper/amber color with a forthy light tan head. Nose is sweet, caramel buttery malts. Kind of faint. Hints of bananas and yeast in there too. Start is mildly sweet with a bit of graininess. Hints of caramel in the start. Very toasty and roasty in the middle. Finish is slightly watery. This is ok, but the toastiness followed by the watery body to finish really kind of make this unpleasant.

argo0 (11568) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Clear copper body topped by small beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, toasted caramel. Taste is mild sweet, some caramel but it's dominated by solid earthy bitterness. Creamy medium body.

pivo (2571) - GERMANY - DEC 27, 2003
Toasted malt nose and tastes. Mazbe some woody and nutty notes in the middle. Clear brown color and a tall head. Nice balance, though a little rustic. Very good.

Ahh = what nice memories came back with this beer. We had it at the brewery a couple of years ago while visiting a friend in Indian Summer. We sat outside and the nature was incredable. Nice amber with a little head. Caramel malt nose and taste.

Crystal clear light medium copper w/ a lasting light beige head of mixed bubble size head of foam. Faintly sweet malt aroma with hints of diacetyl. This seems to be a recurring theme with this brewery. Third one I've had so far and they've all had it. At least it's been fairly subdued! There also seems to be a little bready aroma. Other than that, all aromas are fairly faint to the point of non existance, although the diacetyl gets a little stronger as it warms. Sweet malt flavor with a little acidic bite; fairly well balanced. Not much to the flavor profile...hints of caramel, some diacetyl in the flavor, and finishes a little dry and lightly bitter with a light fruitiness. There is a miniumum of hop flavor in the aftertaste. It's fairly light bodied, almost watery and has a dry mouthfeel. I wasn't terribly impressed by this one, it lacks a lot of character all the way around.
