Light, malty, nutty with caramel like sweetness. Slightly watery in the finish, thinning out with a lack of hops that would add to the overall flavor.

Thanks to Cavie for sharing this bottle. Amber with a white head. Aroma is full of toffee. Flavor is toffee, grass and some light caramel. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours a clear reddish brown. Aroma of banana and syrup. Taste is smooth and well-balanced. Not cloying the hops are enough to balance the sweetness and make for a drier finish. Nicely done. I could get a case ad this.

On tap for Casper’s Wedding. Pours a deep orange color with a medium white head. A nice crisp nose of apples and honey. The flavor is mellow caramel, dusty, some fruit, very sweet and light. Refreshing. Lots of flavor though.

Poured a clear amber color with minimal head. Aroma had some caramel, bread notes. Taste was light sweetness, lots of malts and a hint of grassy earth type hop bitterness. Light body thin feel, soft carbonation, clean and refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Banana custard scent more akin to a Dubbel than an Oktoberfest with a dark bronze, low head dissolving to film, appearance. The light, crisp palate was refreshing as the grainy taste finished on a bitter note. I picked up grains all over the taste and aroma. It made me think of tortilla chips.

Light golden color, clear with a thin head. Light malt and hops aroma. Average brew and has a nice finish. MJ might have liked this back 20 years ago but now it would be average for him also.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I find it surprising that Michael Jackson ranks this on his list of top 24 American beers. Some exotic flavors but nothing to rave about. The taste may be unpleasant to some. Worth a retry just to see what I might have missed from Mr. Jackson’s review.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) clear amber with a fine tan bubbled head and very little effervescence. Nose of butter, cracker, dry, chalky and a bit of caramel and apples. Taste of trash, dry grain, taffy and butter.
