12 oz bottle. Pours a copper color. Lots of roast malt flavors, not enough hops to provide any balance. Not at all what I’m looking for in an APA. This beer is somewhat palatable when fresh, downright awful when not.

Draft. First tried this brew at the first tapping event at Findlay Market in OTR. Now have it on draft at home. This beer is amber in color and pours with a nice head and good retention. Aroma is soft and gentle...which is very inviting. At first sip, the beer is quite impressive. Crisp, clean, and very enjoyable. Lots of malts, yet enough hops to balance well. Nice caramel tones in there as well. This beer finishes very clean and leaves no aftertaste. Much better at home then at debut tapping...I believe this is due to the temperature at which it was served. This beer tasts best to me at colder temperatures. Proud to say this one is from my home town.

12 oz bottle. Not a bad beer, but zero to get excited about. A malty, bitter, low hopped pale. A craft drinkers "lite beer"’ if that.

Afantastic american pale ale. Being in Cincinnati I know the history of OTR, and the hopiness is very reflective of the bitter attitude that is prevalent Over the Rhine

One word...malt malt malt...with good hops. I went to the first keg tapping at Findley Market and was immediately impressed even though the beer wasn’t served at the optimum temperature. Great caramel flavor intensifies at the end with a clean finish. I bought a couple six-packs and then went the 1/6 barrel route. I am now close to purchasing my thrid sixth barrel since my neighbors appear to like this beer as much as I do. By far, the best Christian Morlein beer to date.

Simply a great beer.
A rocky head dissolves quickly. Fruity aroma. Tasty.

From a bottle poured into a pint glass. Light cloudy tan, with a weak aroma. Weak tasting beer with a strong aftertaste. It?s not likely to make the rotation.

Nice. Best beer on tap at taste of Cincinnati. Wifey liked the lager but tasteless to me after OTR.
