Lightish brown with a little head. Light aroma with some malt and nutty aromas, nuttiness comes out more on the palate. Somewhat bitter with good carbonation.

Bottle. Roasted aroma, slightly vinous. Slightly sweet and spicy. Seemingly clear dark brown colour. Big stable creamy tan head. The flavour is roasted with a good spicy hoppiness. Tastes like a macro beer, but a good one, very well-balanced and quite flavourful.

EithCubes (5634) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Bottle. Sweet malty nose, chocolate and roast and nuts with a light element of Kool-Aid. Amber pour with light carbonation and a sudsy off-tan head. Taste is very, very dirty! Low bitterness and high filth. Medium metal and some sort of spicing or floral note. Fullish body too big. Ugh.

bottle - Pours dark brown with a one finger light tan head. It smells of caramel malt and some mild hops. The flavor is mild to moderate hops bitterness with caramel malt and a little bit of a spicy character. It’s medium bodied and just decent at best.

Pors dark brown with a nice head. Aromatic notes of malt push the nutlike flavors into the forefront. The finish brings out some of the hop notes for a nice finish.

Bottle from joshuahfl. Pours dark copper with a two-finger fine beige head. Rather malty aroma. Medium body with sharp carbonation. Flavor is something roast malt, suggestive of nuts. No particular nut though. Finishes with a rather grassy bitter. Flavorful and pretty smooth.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, copper colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate, petri dish looking lace. Aroma is nutty, light to medium sweet malts with some caramel, and an underlying earthy fruit. Flavor is a light earthy and grassy, grapefruit hop up front with a dry, nutty, lightly sweetened malt balancing this out. Finishes crisp and dry with a lively carbonation and a good amount of fllavor after a light to medium body. Finishes and lingers with nuts, grapefruit bitterness, mild spiced caramel, and a hint of toast. Overall, this was a lot more flavorful than I anticipated, especially towards the end. Its nothing crazy, but it has a fairly decent bitterness to go along with the lighter, nutty malts. Very sessionable and an enjoyable winter lager.
