"a bit on the generic side, and although i expected it to malt-heavy a little too sweet and too much of a one trick pont for my taste. not bad, but not good either."

Top-fermented bock with cristal malts and Whitbread yeast, apparently. Tasted as old beer. Creamy head, deep brownish amber colour; fruity and malty aroma, caramel, honey, lightly spiced; taste malty, rounded, soft and sweetish, bit honeyish, mild spices, dry finish.

J_man (734) - Tustin, California, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Pale golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of a German lager with fresh malt notes. Taste is also somewhat German lager in nature with some light Belgian spice of coriander and hay notes. Body is creamy, but light and refreshing. Lasting German maltiness and spices. Delicious warm weather beer, I wish I could get some more, but both Pierre Celis and Michigan Brewing Company are gone :’(, but here’s hoping his daughter Christine brings it back!

12oz bottle (Old Notes-Brewed by Celis-Austin)-Pours amber with a decent sized head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste of yeast, caramel, malt, and toffee. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and quite smooth.

dfinney23 (1839) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Inoffensive but bland. Grain, yeast, maybe a touch of spice. Or maybe it just dislodged some spices from between my teeth.

Rando7 (750) - Iowa, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle pours slightly cloudy medium-dark copper with thin white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma a little caramel with almost an adjunct impression given. Taste sweet with caramel, faint spices and fruits. Palate thin with a slight tingle. Finish slight hops.

Kind of a light bock with faint Belgian elements thrown in. Pretty drinkable pleasant unassuming beer.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Pours dull copper wit no head but a dime sized spit-wad. Mild aromas of rust and sweet malt. Medium nectar with much carbonation. Mildly sweet tasting cakebread and caramel with a nice bittering component on the end.
