Bottle sampled with Mad_indian. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of sweet malts, german style hops, and bread. The flavor is bready, sweet malts, and mild hops detected. OK body, Ok brew.

Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is of yeast, earthy spices, and some hay. Flavor is pretty much the same with strong flavors of bready yeast. A respectable brew but not anything Iím going to miss when itís gone.

Thank you stegosaurus. Golden pour thin head. Bready aroma I didnít notice the spicy hops but their is an odd odor. This body slightly sweet spicy taste. A little thin for my likings but not a bad beer over all.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2007 Clear golden body, moderate sized head, solid lacing and retention. Aroma is bready with some spicy hops. Ends with a lightly bitter finish, I agree there isnít much for sweetness here (not that I care.) Very, very light alcohol detected. Enjoyable but simple.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Long Shot collection 2006: Clear, straw colored body, with two finger head and little retention. Very yeasty, rye bread like aroma with cayenne pepper and nutmeg notes. Different, if nothing else. A lot of flavor to this dortmunder. Bready, but not very sweet malts. Hops are spicy and quite present in flavor, maybe a little overdone. Good body. The rye bread quality is overpowering in the mouth. This is very unique to what I have had in the past, and really want to try it again.
