Bottled. Slight thin diminishing head, clear medium-dark amber. Decent balanced caramel/hoppy nose. Slightly on the bitter side for the style, but plenty of malt; not a lot of character though. Finishes medium-sweet. OK.

Thanks to JCapriotti. Nice amber with plumes of carbonation and two fingers of creamy head. Malty aroma largely consisting of carmel malts with a slight off aroma that I couldn’t place. It’s nutty and smooth with some fairly nice ballancing hop bitterness at first. Later a strange bitterness lingers and makes the finish of this medium bodied beer somewhat harsh.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2007
12oz bottle. Aroma: Light toastiness. Good, clean maltiness. Very light caramel and floral. Appearance: Light copper in color and very clear. Off-white head was full and foamy with decent retention. Not much lacing. Flavor: Medium malt sweetness up front. Toasted bread and nuts. Hop bitterness is just a touch to high for the style, but not unpleasant. Medium dry finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Overall: A good version of the style, and very drinkable. Too much hop bitterness and floral aroma/flavor for the style.

Ughsmash (7185) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Bottled. Poured a slightly hazy medium orange with a short cap of white head. The nose picked up sweet toasted caramel, dried floral hops, and a hint of sour citrus. The flavor was all mashed together, hard to really identify its components... I know there was some tacky caramel sweetness, floral, and citrus... but they didn’t seem to play nicely together. Light-medium bodied... just felt ok on the palate. This wasn’t bad, but I’m going to give it the big "meh".

12oz bottled on 18AUG08 from <i>goryshkewych</i>. Thanks George; Clear orange amber with not even enough light beige head to cover the surface and faded to a very thin crescent-shaped film within seconds. Aroma of caramel malts and toasted grain up front. Light dry cereal grain and lightly earthy hops are in the background. The flavor seemed a bit less grainy and the earthy hops kept the overall flavor just lightly sweet. Bitterness peaked around a 2 in the semi dry finish. Carbonation is low with a medium body. Decent for an Oktoberfest.

kramer (5108) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a bright clear copper body with a small fizzy light beige head that fell to a wispy film. The nose is toasty and munich malt with a touch of huskiness. Some light caramel. The flavor is a lot more grainy and husky than I’d like with minimal munich malt sweetness. Finishes dry and toasty with that odd husky quality. Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation level. Not the best example of the style.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle:   Amber, thin sudsy off-white head, sparce lacing, minimal carbonation.   Bready nose, slightly mealy, slight honeycomb.   Quite malty on the tongue, sweet, but again with the slight honeycomb.   Slight overcooked vegetable notes.   Subtle, but its there.   Thinking this one is on the way down.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Nice malty finish, semi-sweet, perhaps a little bit of caramel and/or toffee.   I can see where this one would be pretty tasty had I drank it fresh.   Still, fairly enjoyable.   Thanks Bob!

[Bottle] Pours a clear amber color with a large white head. Grain and distinct caramel in the aroma. Taste is malty, but with a rather light mouthfeel. Sweet caramel in the taste, but not a whole lot of complexity to it. I also get a mineral/metallic character in here that really comes out in the finish. Slightly disappointing after trying other quality Tyranena products.
