12 oz can pours amber with a small, diminishing white head. Very malt-forward nose. Biscuit, bread, a small hint of DMS. Flavor is more of the same. Quite nice and clean finish. Enjoyed it.

Deep copper in color. Light, but attractive hop aroma. Medium to full bodied--attractive on the tongue. Flavor is caramelly sweet, but nicely balanced. Well done.

Best Before October 2005 bottle from Liquor Mart. Consumed on 11/30/05.
Rusty copper colored beer, lightly hazy with just a trace of yeast settling out on the bottom. Some brighter strawberry red hues and an off-white head with fair retention and lacing, eventually receding to cover. In the nose is a lightly sour note, perhaps munich grains, and a hint of dry fruits (unripened berries, unripened nectarines). Dry, husky malts on the end. Smells just a touch metallic at first, but this passes. The flavor has plenty of medium-dry caramel, soily, lightly bitter hops and dry breadiness lingering. Moderately crisp yeast on the finish as well. Carbonation is moderate, pretty average for the style, while it has a lightly watery texture, though it’s not thin by any means. Surprised to find this is 6% abv, as it masks that very well and comes off as a very low gravity, albeit well-malted, session lager. Very even maltiness, not the most complex, but does provide bread, fruits, biscuits and light hops.

Kevin (2078) - New Mexico, USA - JUL 22, 2007
six pack bottle. murky tan body with a nice thick head. cotton candy like aroma. i had the first of the 6 after i drank an optimator, and i thought damn that optimator makes everything taste sweet after you drink it, so i didn’t take notes, but i was mistaken, this is a sweet beer too. malty plum fklavor , a bit of apple & diacetyl, but it works out alright. a bit drier on the finish but still has that apple note to it. the caramel taste here is great. a bit of oilyness on my tongue. i’ve gone through the whole 6 pack in the last week and i don’t regret the purchase.

On tap at the airport (JAC). Pours golden with a nice white head. Good lacing. Medium body. A bit of malt, but a nice bit of citrus/herbal hops flavor. Finished dry, with a bit of citrus taste. Drinkable, solid lager.

Trev (1935) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Copper colour with a thick tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel and toasted malt, baking bread tones. Flavour is nice smooth toasted malt, sweet caramel body, some fruitiness in the finish. A little bit of a sticky residue Very nice though.

UDBeernut (1718) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Can pours clear amber with a thin tan head with good retetion. Not much nose, just a bit of bread and faint grass. Taste is slightly sweet malt, light bittering and grassy hops. A slight roast on the finish. Light thin body, I could see me pounding quite a few if I had more.

Cappadonna (110) - Delray Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Light golden brown with white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of pumpkin. The flavor is sweet and malty. The palate isn’t as "sticky" as its Oktoberfest cousin.
