daknole (8863) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 2, 2009
At Taco Mac. Gold pour, mostly white head. Very grainy aroma with some decent yeast notes and light spice. Flavor is crisp and boring. Not bad, just boring. Grainy, malty, and a bit dry on the finish. Meh.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Pours a clear, lightly sparkling golden with a lightly-lacing white head. Aroma is earthy and somewhat musty with some sweet caramely maltiness. Body starts rich and sweet with good German lager yeastiness and a nice noble hoppy bitter balance. Many thanks to JPDIPSO for sharing this from his keg!

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2002
Draught. Medium yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (light bread, cookie, caramel), moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy texture, soft carbonation. Not much to balance the big malty sweetness, but I like the aroma.
