Nice complex malty flavors. Pours rich and creamy, yet not too filling. Bright hoppy, brilliant finish. Very good beer.

Bottle thanks to hopdog. Pours a lightly hazy deep amber with golden highlights and a smaller bubbly off white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, some nuts, cardboard and dark fruits. Flavor of caramel, sweet grainy malts, toffee, cardboard and a touch of citrus.

Draft at the Lakefront Marathon. Pour is a deep amber with some iced tea notes in the nose. A little hop character. Very drinkable amber with a creamy mouthfeel and some light hoppiness and again the iced tea. Decent.

Pours an amber color with a medium foamy white head. Caramel aroma, with a bit of citrus. Taste is about the same......rather malty, with some pineyness to it. Nothing very special.

I’m not a huge fan of this beer: it’s a little darker for an amber and is a little too malty. I can see why others like it though: it has a somewhat fruity aroma and is a strong beer although relatively smooth

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a nice amber body with a large head. Nice retention that brings back the froth again and again. Caramel, and fruit in the aroma and flavors of caramel as well. A pretty tastey brew, but a little too malty.

A pleasant brown ale that is set apart from others of the breed with grassy notes, but otherwise a fairly standard rendering of bready malts and clover hops.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2009 Mildly hazy deep amber with a thin tan head that meets its demise fairly quickly. Aroma of heavy caramel, fruit and lightly toasted malt. Flavor is heavy on the caramel with dark fruits and not much in terms of hops though a mild bitterness does come through on the finish. A bit oily and grainy and dry on the finish.
(02-15-08 = 8-4-7-3-13)Draught at the Gasthaus. Nice dark amber color with pleasant aroma. Nothing good or bad about palate. Beer had nice flavor and I enjoyed this beer and would try it again.
