From the bottle poured a tea colored brew with a large head. Medium bodied with aromas and flavors of malt, butter, and tin can, with a barely noticable hop finish.

Draught. Pours amber with a small off-white head. The aroma is toast, raisin, and sage. The flavor is toasty and hay. Watery and uninteresting.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 2, 2004
Reddish brown, Decent tan head. Faint, clean aroma. Overly thin bodied. Caramel flavor but not too sweet. Slightly vegetable crisp hop flavor. Abrupt finish, no aftertaste. Rather bland.

Bottle. I’m going to steal my husband’s descriptor and say that it is black tea color plus a big white head. Smells tinny and lemony and grainy. Kind of watery with a little carbonation. Sweet up front, then kind of watery and grainy. Not my thing.

Beerenberger (1364) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Aroma is minimal. Pours a nice ruby reddish brown with a minimal head. Taste is minimal also - sweet malt and caramel notes. Medium-light bodied and minimal carbonation. Overall, nothing to write home about. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tried during a paddle taster and was glad that I only had 2 oz. of this beer! Not a favorite or a second taster.

Thanks to emacgee... dark amber with a copper center, clear, big tope head, very cloud like with great retention, looks great... really cheap generic nose, caramel and skunk, lots of corn, and some coffee, not great... the taste is even worse!, super flat, devoid of flavor at the front then a chemical skunk finish... pass on this

Draft at balloon fest. Just confirmed that I don’t like lagers. Couldnt wait to drink an IPA to get the after taste out.
