COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A delicate balance of toasted malt and fresh hops give this medium-bodied German style lager an intriguing complex flavor. A creamy head, deep golden color and an impressive hop bouquet make this a very special beer.

Had at the brewpub after a tour of the place. Not bad, but reminded me of Sam Adams... not sure how I feel about that.

BBB63 (6155) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2004
Bottle: Clean amber hue with very good frothy head and lace. The aroma has notes of caramel, toast, and biscuit malts, grassy hops, light pineapple, and dusty yeast esters. The taste starts mellow and lightly sweet. A hoppy bitterness soon follows with a dash of fruity undertones. A floral character leads to a mild biter and metallic finish. The feel is a bit watery. Quaffable, but leaves something to be desired. Thanks for the bottle, MrFacto.

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2008
Bottle (16oz). Slightly hazy rich amber pour, nice bubbling and a 2cm foamy beige head. Light, crisp aroma of mild fresh cereal grain, toasty caramel sweetness, and light herbal bitterness. The taste - well, Iím disappointed; elements from the aroma, but mostly just bottle metallic harshness. Light body, somewhat undercarbonated, crisp-finishing, but that metal lingers, Iím afraid, although it seems to fade as it warms and opens, leaving run-of-the-mill bland toasty grain and light herbal/grassy hop bitteness in its wake.

16 oz bottle served at the miller time pub (milwaukee, wi). Decided to go for this after I didnít partake in it after the tour. Pours a very nice slightly hazed amber with a big puffy offwhite head that laces. Aromas are nice light carmel malts balanced with decent florals and citrus with a touch of gumball sweetness. Initial is light bodied, a touch toasted cereal, carmel, amd toffee balanced with a light bitterness and subtle inviting citrus. Finishes nicely, light malty sweetness finishes and is pretty good.

16 oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head that disappears quickly. The aroma is medium caramel malts and faint hoppiness. The flavor is caramel malts, light roasted character, faint earthy hops, and light fruitiness. Medium light body. Not bad, just not exiting.

Thanks to Cavie for sharing this bottle. Gold with a white head. Aroma is not too great. I get some grain notes as well as some dirt. Flavor is similar with grain and grass notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Murky, medium orange pour with a slight white head. Bit of a worty aroma, some molasses. Flavor has some raisins, molasses, a bit of caramel, good rib sticking flavor. Sticky mouthfeel....leaning to the cloying side near the end though. Thanks to Aurelius for saving this out of his beer of the month club
