On tap at tasting room. Nice dark copper pour with solid white head. Citra hops come through with nice bitterness and dry finish. Malty sweetness up front. Grass on the finish. Interesting choice for a flagship.

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark copper with a thin off white head. Bready malty aroma. Good balance of sweet and bitter and good body. There’s nothing that stands out on this one but it is a nice medium beer, not too heavy and not to light.

On tap at the Book & Bar, Portsmouth, NH. Amber with a ring of white head; faint malt aroma; creamy caramel malt taste. This certainly didn’t remind me of Düsseldorf.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes. Consumed 1/06/12.
The appearance has a copper brown colored body with a small tan lumpy head with a speckled lacing.
The smell has a light sort of mild malts and hops with a light cooked apples and an added sort of bread/biscuitiness.
The taste is basically sweet through the previously mentioned flavors.
On the palate, its mostly on a medium sort of body with a nice sessionable sort of quality to it. There is a decent light harshness on the tongue, no aftertaste or finish.
Overall, this is good for the style and good for me.
