SPECS: 14 SRM, OG 1.058, FG 1.015, 5.3% abv, 16.5 IBUs. Malts: Pils, Munic, Vienna, Cara-Pils. Hops: Saaz, Magnum, Tradition, Golding

This beer will not disapoint. It has a nice head and it’s taste is awsome. Much better then Sam Adams Oktoberfest.

Pretty tasty! Malty, bold, and pretty complex. Although it’s very good, something about the aftertaste was a little funky and didn’t appeal to me much. Altogether a worthy beer. Prosit!

UPDATED: APR 30, 2005 Tap from brewery. Poured to a deep orange color with an off white head. A medium bodied beer with a mildly hoppy smell and orange flavors are present. A very short finish no real lasting flavors and very smooth. Very mild flavors making it seem lmost non-alcoholic.

Kinz (3286) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2004
Draft at CAH. Copper color, very nice, long lasting compact white head. Aroma was faint but malt oriented. Flavor was a pleasant toasty malt accent, with a delicate Okt hop finish. Well balanced. Very nice.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 21, 2002
Golden orange with a mild haze. Dense off white head. Slow carbonation. Understated malt aroma of toasted Vienna and caramel, citrus and buttery notes. Smooth and lightly crisp. Off tasting metal twang and butter quickly fades. Mish mash of slightly husky, sloppy malts with a saving dose of Vienna sweetness. Medium body. Flavor integrates better as it sits and warms. Dollop of spicy hops and faint citrus provide balance. Finishes with a mild buttery, toasty sweet mixture and flash of its alcohol warmth. A decent version. Saying it’s better than Sam Adams though is like saying Bud is better than Coors.

DYCSoccer17 (3320) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Bottle. Very grassy saaz hop notes in the nose along with some caramel malts. Slightly metallic. Transparent copper color with a nice frothy jubilant white head. Caramel malts to start turning more roasted in the middle with a nice Saaz kick at the finish. Decent, but a little thin.

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Draft at Capital Ale House Innsbrook. Comes in at 5.5% ABV. Copper colored body with a small white head. Aroma is hoppier and fruitier than expected. There is a malty and bubblegum like aroma coming through as well. Taste is light hops with stronger fruit notes and light sweetness and malts. There are some berry flavors along with some light spiciness as well. Body is medium with mild carbonation sharpness. Finishes hopped and fruity with lighter sweetness and spice.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 10, 2002
On tap GIBF, Providence RI. Orange-yellow golden hue. Toasted grain, caramel notes in the aroma. Smooth and buttery, excellent malts and wonderful mouthfeel. ALthough this is enjoyable, its not anything absolutely extraordinary. WOrth revisisting from the bottle.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 9, 2004
2004 bottle @ Sunset Grill. Pours a moderately deep orange-copper. Very clear with a small lightly yellow tinged white head. Aroma of caramel corn, butter and lightly spicy hops. Flavor is quite sticy, buttery and pretty toffeeish. Good overall flavor of malt with a touch of hops hidden. As it warms, you can taste the light hops on the finish which give a good deal of flavor. Not overly crisp, more sticky and chewy, but at least it had a medium to medium full body which didnt thin out. Pretty tastey.

gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Clear amber pour with a good size white head. Nutty, toasted, malty aroma. Strange hop aroma in there as well (orange citrus). Toasted nut flavor, sweet with small hop bitters. Light, good body, and somewhat fizzy. Nutty aftertaste. Overall a little bland. Looks good and smells good, but flavor and palate can’t keep up.
