hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2006
12oz bottle. Poured a deep and hazy golden color with a large sized off white head. Aromas of fruits, yeast, and toasted malts. Tastes of apples, caramel, and toasted malts. Creamy yet thin body. Light alcohol in the finish.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Pours a mostly clear dark golden bronze with a thin ring of white head. Aroma of sweet toasty caramel and Munich malts with a touch of German lager yeast. Body starts with some sweet viscous maltiness and plenty of carbonation trapped within. Has notes of floral honey and earthy noble hops, but mostly dense and sticky sweet. Has a lightly bitter butterscotch finish. Fairly true to style but not all that drinkable.

Ughsmash (7005) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 22, 2006
Bottled. Poured a rather ugly medium golden with a head that dissapeared quite quickly. The nose was of sweet, lightly-toasted caramel with some floral hops. Flavor was very sweet, again with the toasted caramel, some toffee, herbal hops, and touches of alcohol. Smooth across the middle, but rather tacky and ugly around the edges. Sticky caramel and alcohol finish. Just OK.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 9, 2004
Bottle pours caramel, small off-white milk foam like head, subtle carbonation, with spotty lacing.   Malty aroma with hints of caramel or butterscotch.   Caramel on first sip, then settling down to a nice malty back-end.   Fairly sweet, with a slightly salty aftertaste.   A bit of a sweet grassy flavor hiding in the background.   Tiz alright...   Thanks goes out to batkins for the freebie!

12oz bottle into a pint glass. The Maifest I had was a blonde dopplebock. It was tasty, but there are better ones out there.

arminjewell (5717) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Pours reddish orange with white head, aroma has notes of caramel, grass, and pine. Taste is some dull notes of grass, leading into caramel, slightly bitter finish. Pretty good flavors, but not very many of them and not very strong.

Bottle. Gold pour, small white head. Bread, malt, and citrus nose and taste. I didn’t particularly enjoy this one.
