Stale, husky malt aroma. Hazy amber color. Sweet caramel multi-grain bread taste.Soft body, real easy drinker. Nothing to write home about this old recipe.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Backlog rating 3-24-2009 (Bottle) This beer has a tiny small white head that quickly dissipated, transparent body with a gold hue, visible carbonation, and no lacing. The aromas are malt, hoppy, crisp, and sharp. Ditto for the taste. The palate is tingly and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, the taste of this beer is very bland and boring to drink, lacks character and is a beer that I will not drink again.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy, amber brown with a short, soap-like, tan-grey head.
No scent to speak of....maybe just a little stale bread.
Taste is wooden, caramel, toasted malt.
Obviously well past it’s prime.....apparently this brewer went away over a year ago....
Quite a shame....probably a decent beer in it’s day.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Unfortunately, this brewery closed and this is an old bottle. Nothing wrong with it, except its near-flat. Cloudy orange with a pathetic head struggling to form, then quickly disappearing. Aroma is caramelly malt and yeast. Taste is sweet caramel malts, yeast, wood and hops just to balance. Slightly sticky body, and near-flat. Sad to see this place go.

Had it like a year after the brewery closed i guess, not fresh, pretty spoiled. Are they re-brewing it?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a caramel color with no head. Aroma of caramel, bread, and toasted malts. Caramel is dominant flavor with bread, toasted malts, and toffee rounding out the taste. Surprising substance for this style.

Good but I feel something didn’t translate to the bottle version. I would really like to taste it on tap. I did like this but compared to some other Keller bier for some reason the flavors just die a little too quickly in your mouth. Serving: Bottle

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber-brown pour. The nose is lightly sweet and caramelly with more than a touch of oxidation. Rich and bready however with a toasted malt character. Lazy carbonation. Oddly dusty and dry. I suspect this was once quite tasty, but it’s well past that time now.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bit dull-looking clear light orange pour with little apparent carbonation a just a timid off-white foam that recedes to a ring. This 500 ml bottle was bought around 2 months ago at Half Time. On the nose, it deploys subtle, but pleasant, well-extracted grainy flavours that feel cerealic and complete (though never really rich) and a certain damp, sandy character that might be related to a lack of freshness. Fortunately, it seems brighter in mouth where its subtle hop profile grows on you, comprising surprising salty qualities atop its leafy, almost gently lemony, borderline earthy notes. Rather complex hop profile indeed, evolving into a cleansing bitterness. In terms of structure, it could be a bit more structured as its tiny-bubbled carbonation feels a bit tame, giving the strawy, fieldish, bread crusty malts a sloppier appearance than they deserve. The transition from entrance to finish also seems a bit empty when contrasted to the beautiful finish. It’s certainly something I’d try again under fresher circumstances, but in the US, for my money, I’d rather grab a similar, more complete St. georgen.
