COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copper in color, this rich, malty lager is assertively hopped with German Tettnanger hops, producing a complex lager beer, a classic example of this style.

Pours copper just like the commercial description says. Very malty and gives you a feeling as if the beer is coarsing through your veins with excitement at every turn. It was a good brew, probably still is.

IndianaRed (2446) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 5, 2006
Bottle pours a light golden with a large white head that had amazing lasting power. Spotty lacing. Light malts that are a bit paler than I expectedfrom a Bock. Flavor was light and a bit sweet, lacking some of the darker notes I expected. Body was medium, softly carbonated and a pleasant finish.

Smells funny; can’t place it. This is a pretty decent beer. Tasty malts with some nice hops. Definitely worth trying.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 4, 2006
Bottle: Pours a golden color with a bit of head, average head and lacing. The nose is lightly sweet with some typical pale malts and light alcohol, some clean pear fruitiness and light hops. The flavor has a nice body with some clean sweet malts. Finishes balanced, decent.

IrishBoy (3836) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 30, 2006
(Bottle from World Market Sampler) Nose is caramel malts, with a little sweetness; Copper colored with a tiny off-white head; Caramelly malt flavor with a tiny bit of tartness (very slight) and a nice hop finish.

SpringsLicker (3133) - Tennessee, USA - APR 7, 2006
Thanks to droopy49 for sending this one! Large, long lasting, off white head over a medium gold colored body. Good malt aroma with some spicy honey notes. Smooth, malty and well balanced as it should be. Nice beer!

stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - MAR 26, 2006
Delicious body of malty love. For an example of clean lager characteristics and smooth maltiness, try this beer. A fine sweet grain flavor dominates this one. Just a tiny tingle of hop on the finish. Right beer for cool Southern California evenings and bonfires.

Aroma: Caramel and Malty aroma with a little herbal Appearance: Nice Golden Orangy... with a thin white head which dissipates quickly Flavor: Solidly malty with nice bready and honey flavors with the sweetness kept in check with nice bitterness: Palate: Medium bodied carbonation, feels a little prickly Starts with malty sweetness which is replaced with hoppy bitterness in the finish Overall: A very good beer, but I would have hoped for a little more presence in the nose and a drier finish

Pailhead (4812) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of DarkElf via trade. Second beer I’ve had that I notice a strong pet store odor which is not pleasant. Behind that lies some toffee, roasted grain, and fruit. I find these underlying aromas nice, but just can’t get past the pet store odor. Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with a moderate white head that diminishes rather quickly. Taste is much better than the aroma. Lots of sweet caramel from start to finish. Very light hints of fruit and grain. Slightest hints of bitterness in the finish. Very tastey and I really enjoyed the beer overall, but the aroma score is really going to put a ding in my total score.

On tap at the brewpub. Has the exact same appearance as the helles- dark gold with a white head. Odd aromatic floral aroma. The flavor is the remarkable thing here. An astringently medicinal potion whose floral sweetness is strong. The chemical medicine flavor dominates. What is it? Odd, but I strangely like it.
