Bottle: Clear gold color with a extremely quickly diminishing head. Corny and malty sweet aroma. It has an astringent taste with honey that wishes I had the Thirsty Dog Siberian Night. Not that good -- but thanks anyway, BuckeyeBoy.

(Brewed and bottled by Frederick Brewing) (Best by May 2005) Very sweet and boring. Not even a quaffer. Could be better if it were drier.

Bottle. Yeasty, fruity almost a molasses aroma. Cloudy brown with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Has flavors of corn and molasses. Finishes a little heavy. Not what I expected, I usually like Vienna Lagers.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Wheat and honey aroma. Sweet and kinda thick; close to cooked corn. Hazy orange amber with thin white foamy head. Light watery body with medium carbonation. Start with a fake caramel corn sweetness. Mild malt and honey. Watery on flavor. Mild to medium bitterness in the finish. Mild caramel toasted flavor, too. After is a bit chalky and sweet. Cooked corn, mainly. Not a repeater.
