12oz bottle acquired in trade with lb4lb (thanks!). Poured a medum and clear amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of some breadiness, some caramel, and some roast. Some earthiness too. Tastes of caramel, lighter roastiness, and toasted nuts.

ROGUE (2152) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - DEC 16, 2008
12oz bottle. Poured a deep golden color with moderate white head and no lacing. Smell is very light and almost undectable. Tastes of strong malt character is balanced nicely by a firm hop background. Leaves a nice mouth feel. An easy drinking beer. Very refreshing when drinking in summertime.

Bottle. Pours an amber color. Has a small head that fades quickly. Easy on the palate. Malt smell and hardly no taste.

perhaps like an old girlfriend that was not bad but was not good either. She occasionally forgot to bath and now you would just as well leave her to fade from your memory. yeh .... kinda like that.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Not a bad effort. Clear, dark brown body topped by a small beige head that leaves some scattered lace. Muted aroma has some dark toasted bread and spicy hops. Taste adds a note of faint chocolate to the dark bread and spicy hop. Unremarkable, but probably the best offering of the Spoetzl line.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2008
12oz twist-off bottle. Pours clear, amber color. White head. Toasted malt aroma. Lager yeast. Smells like it’s a balanced beer. Flavor is kinda sharp. Rich toasted malt. Big bitter finish. Not what you’d expect from an American Dark Lager. Overall, it is drinkable. Not mindblowing.

It’s pretty good. Heavy on the carbonation and more malt than bitter. Easy to drink, but not outstanding.

Funknmilla (730) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2008
12 oz bottle...golden body with a light beige head...smells nice...nice malts...drinks pretty light...reminds me of Miller’s 1855 Celebration Lager, almost to a tee...a light creaminess to the body, not very complex....nice, nice, and nice...a fresh yeasty thing with a pleasant malt finish...lots of carbonation, even a smidge of lacing...quite easy to drink...the carbonation is a big presence here, which makes it creamy, but makes it hard to pick out much in the flavor

12 0z. bottle, orange amber color with sweet malty taste, dry on finish, I thought it was decent
