On tap at the brewery. Nice and floral with good complexity and a light body with a slight alcohol burn. Well balanced.

Still looking for the first Sprecher beer I can recommend to my friends. This isn’t going to be the one.

S_Side_Smitty (700) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Pours deep gold with a medium off white head. Aroma is mellow grains and light molasses. Taste is similar up front followed very quickly by some German style hop bitterness. The finish is a pleasant mix of sweet malts and bitterness - nothing over the top.

12 oz. bottle at home from old notes. Pours a slightly hazy orange golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, ripe fruits, stone fruit, hint of citrus, a slight tart character and oxidation notes, I don’t know how old this was at the time, but these sit on the shelves for a long time.

ordybill (1301) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Poured from a 16 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- has a yeasty type aroma that is not all that inviting. Appearance- A dark yellow colored beer with a white head. Taste- Very disappointing, has a malt flavor that I do not particularly care for. I am a fan of Maibock style beer but this taste is off the mark for me. Palate - A medium bodied beer with a dry finish with a not-so pleasant aftertaste. Overall - A big disappointment for me. I was hoping for 16Oz of pure enjoyment, instead it was drudgery finishing this beer off.

teemoney (95) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Poured from bottle into shaker. Translucent yellow-orange with thicker white head. Smells grainy and lager-y (like a basement or something). Taste is also grainy/ lager-y, with some pretty nice light hop flavor in the background. Palate is pleasant. Not my favorite beer, but pretty solid and good for the style.

tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Sample pour of mild amber gold with white head. Nose is sweetness and mild caramel. Fully malted with little to no hop presence. Light zesty malt with more malt and some caramel notes. Fairly drinkable and enjoyable for the style. I’d do it again.
