1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of apples, yeast, and a touch of bread. It pours a hazy orangish-brown with a decent amount of suspended sediment. Even with a vigorous pour, only a small large-bubbled head forms before quickly fading to almost nothing. The flavor starts with a quick dose of caramel and fruit. The finish has some watered down bready notes with some faint apple. It’s light bodied with flat mouthfeel. Overall...looking at the most recent ratings and seeing that this brewery is out of business, this is well past it’s prime.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
